Anything but a Russia win really. Assuming we do our job and get 7 points from the group then that puts them our threat for top spot.

If we don't do our job then fuck it all.

Draw would probably be best, as JimJams said though providing we deliver on the next two games anything other than a Russian win means we're likely to top the group.

I'm edging towards a Slovakia win, though a draw will be a good result for us too. Hopefully Weiss can trouble the slow Russian defence.

2-1 Slovakia

Beautiful pass from Hamsik. Cooly dealt with by Weiss.

Bit like watching Drinkwater link up with Vardy. Nevermind eh!

And to think Slovakia were written off after losing to Wales.

Fantastic strike. Will be interesting to see how the Russian fans in the stadium react to losing. Will they end up testing the resolve of UEFA?

What a move by Hamsik. No way Akinfeeev could have stopped that. Beautiful.

Russia are terrible though, they are so weak defensively. That just makes our draw look even worse too, the performance warranted more.

Two moments of brilliance from Hamsik.

And I thought they had no chance in winning against Russia. But here they are leading 2-0.

I think England will struggle against Slovakia. This annoyingly makes it a bit tougher to finish third.

Draw would have been better but that is far better than a Russian win.

Football Genius? :bg1:

Solid performance from Slovakia, though I still think we should beat them in the final group match. Russia will be lucky to progress now.

I think Russia are going home. Mind you, a win against Wales tomorrow is a must.

Fuck Russia. They deserve this for the way their fans have behaved.

England have just got to concentrate on taking care of their own business. Wales showed that there is nothing special about this Slovakia side, no reason England can't beat both teams.

Hopefully Russia will go out against Wales and we can get rid of them and their fans. Tournament will be better of for it.

Let's not go overboard with wanting Russia out simply because 100-200 of their hoolies were allowed to travel eh? The blame lies with the authorities not with the proper Russian fans and the team they support.

As for the match, if the Russians were lucky against us, then today they were unlucky. I expected much more from the Slovaks who wanted to take something out of the game more than the Russians did, but posed no threat at all until that through ball which caught the Russian defence out. Then a wonder goal by Hamsik (which is surely one of the best goals so far but in a way it was also lucky as it came just on the stroke of ht) and they did sweet fa for the rest of the game against a side that was very poor and missing 2/3 players of their first starting eleven.

A draw would have been a fairer result, as I don't think the Slovaks did enough to earn all 3 points.

I wouldn't want to be someone with plans to head to Russia for the 2018 World Cup.

I hear people saying that this result is bad for England, surely a Slovakia win was better than Russia winning?
