    Would’ve preferred our chances against japan more than against Colombia, oh well will continue to support the boys and hope they can win a knockout match for the first time since 2006.

    I’m not sure this is such a bad result for England. They end up on a weaker side with Colombia, Swi/Swe, Esp/Cro as opposed to Japan, Brazil, Fra/Arg/Por/Uru. Reminds me of Portugal’s position in last Euro.

    Oh man, the clowns on the TSN radio network are all over this! " Good job England! Mission Accomplished! They get the result that they needed!" Blablabla

    Now I sit back and watch England get completly reamed by a vastly technically and tactically superior side.

    I really don't see it as being much weaker though. I would pick Croatia, Spain and Colombia over England.

    Momentum is important in these tournaments too. England now has to regain there's whereas Belgium is still flying.

    Anything can happen though.

    I think England should win against Colombia, but it's either Spain or Croatia coming out of that side of the bracket methinks.

    I’ve seen too many italian squads barely making it to the next round only to then become unbeatable. Portugal did the same in Euro. I will bet on England to reach semis against Spa/Cro.

    You shouldn't. There is too much evidence to suggest they will struggle even against the likes of Sweden.

    You've got to shake your head at a team that hasn't won an elimination game at any tournament in 12 years strategically losing in order to give themselves a tougher opponent in their first elimination game at this one.

    England will easily decimate Colombia

    I don't think they strategically lost. They just sucked.

    That makes it even worse.

    Colombia is not very impressive. Senegal looked better with the exception of finishing power.

    Lol, what a troll loss by England. Rose sucks, put Trippier back in.

    Beautiful strike though by Januzaj. England should not lose to Colombia, they're my favourite SA nation so I got nothing against them, but they're very top heavy with an extremely average goalkeeper. England has a great chance to get to the Final Four, but I might be undervaluing how good the Suisse have been.

    England were the betting favorites before this match.

    Trippier got a knock against Panama and plays on the opposite flank. Rose's competition is Young. Whom I'd start him over. He actually provided something on that left flank. Got past defenders or drew fouls. Had some good interceptions/tackles in the defensive end too. Sadly people will only remember one specific mistake.

    Wow, Young and Rose and no team decided to focus on that side of the pitch? Who's the winger covering them because if it's Sterling that would be hilarious.

    They're wingbacks, so most of the time they are solo.
