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

True, but they've lifted again for the start of extra time

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

Deserved winner, we've been second best since midway through the first

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