We'll see how good Mbappe is when Walker sticks to him like glue and matches him stride for stride.

If it comes down to a one off game it's on. There's enough winners and scrappers in the team to come away the winner. That's why tonight is so crucial. Southgate should not fuck up this opportunity. Put legs in midfield and sap Croatia's energy levels, don't let them play.
Can't see Southgate swapping Walker to the left so that's irrelevant.


I'd much rather have faced Belgium should we get to the final. Pogba and Kante would totally dominate our 3 behind Kane and Mbappe vs Maguire is a very scary prospect.

Let's focus on Croatia first anyway.

The best player in the world wasn’t playing then in that friendly (Pickford) and we had bloody Phil Jones at the back. Either us or Croatia could beat France in a one off game.

I don't remember no as I don't watch pointless friendlies, I've got better things to do like watch Emmerdale.:D

If you think that matters a jot then you can't have watched much football before.

I did see France struggle against a garbage Australia though this tournament, only to have to be handed the game. For how "amazing" they were against a crap Argentina they only one by one, and looked very suspect at the back.:db:

Well you clearly don't know much about football do you? You probably just appear when the world cup is on and expect England to be the best team all the time.

We'll see how good Mbappe is when Walker sticks to him like glue and matches him stride for stride.

Again IF England make it through, Mbappe plays on the right and Walker plays on our right side of defence. So it will actually be Ashley Young who would likely be in Mbappe's pocket. lol

It is funny that when England do well in international friendlies against top-tier nations, the performances and results are derided as worthless yet Carver cites a friendly between France and England a year ago (with a totally different England team which has evolved a lot since then) as evidence that England would struggle to be in the game if they play France on Sunday.

It was pretty much the same formation and yes a few different players but still many were the same.

But hey all this talk about how we would do against France is extremely arrogant as we have got a match tonight against Croatia who themselves are a good side and could easily knock us out and make all this talk look foolish.

So if anyone else looks ahead to Sunday before tonight's semi has been played then you should not be taken seriously at all!!

I'm sure Maguire will let him out of his pocket after the game.

Are you seriously so dim that that's the only response you have?

I follow Bradford City home and away and watch England during qualifiers and tournaments, I just don't bother with pointless friendlies. Plus we have changed our set up totally since last year, more evidence that they mean fuck all, but as a moaning bastard I'm sure had we beat France you'd be quick to tell us all how pointless it was.

To say I don't know football my bets aren't looking to shabby either:

France e/w @ 6/1
England e/w @ 16/1
France and England to meet in the final at 12/1 (Didn't put it on until the round of 16)
Griezmann top scorer (Well I had to get one wrong I suppose, and it's going to kane so I'm not arsed)
