They were poor against Russia and should have been out of this at half time.
They are a decent team mate, apart from the Russian game they have fared well in this WC, they are all over us now like a rash

That was the epitome of a game of two halves, as the old saying goes

I thought they were excellent against Argentina but no better thsn us in any other game, they have been very good this second half but a lot of it was our own doing

The Croatians were always likely to take the initiative in the second half - they had to being a goal done, but England also seemed to stop playing for some reason.

Yep playing well for one half, you can't afford to play well for short periods of a game certainly not at this level

England better overall in the first half of extra time - Stones unlucky, but Croatia nearly snatch the lead at the death.

Sorry people. Not much consolation at the moment but England had a very good tournament.
