Thank You England

England got beat tonight 2-1 off Croatia in the Semi-final of the 2018 World Cup.
We done well in the first half, always in control but lost their way in the second half.
It was 1-1 at full time and England still couldn't find what was necessary in the extra time period.
I can't believe we allowed this game to slip from our hands.
Anyway, thanks England for getting this far and giving us a lot of hope, you did us proud.
What was that you said again?

Good post. Well done to all the boys. The one blight I feel was Kane... Very poor and almost static... Should of passed to sterling and his header... Well, the least said about that. Overall very pleased. A decent partner for sterling would of made all the difference.

Q. In what minute was it harry Kane last touched the ball?

Clue:- it was against Panama.... Lol.

No, good world Cup and again happy.

I also think Kane could have done better.
Also, this might be controversial from me but I think the turning point was when we lost Sterling. From then on we went downhill.
I bet nobody can even point to Croatia on the map :oops:

Better luck next time hey!

I won't whinge or while over this game since we went further than I expected. I will say though that we had this in the bag but I agree we lost our way in the second half. Sad night but I also agree that the lads deserve a pat on the back.
