    Englands D looks like West Ham under Allardyce. Slowing it down, a few alibi passes and then starting to panic and hoof it.. Yikes.

    Hazard and Lukaku are like two people standing on the opposite sides of a town square whose attempts to meet in the middle always end in failure,

    This match is the difference between having good players and having Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

    Is this the two teams in the tournament with the least embellishment, or is it just the game?

    It's the game.

    Although it would be correct to say that England are the only team in the tournament who don't dive, whose players shower properly, use the right toothpaste, help old ladies cross the street, and rescue dishevelled orphans from packs of hungry wolves.

    It strange to see how many shots on goal are being thwarted by the attacker not being able to get the ball off in time. Not only in this game.

    He had a really good season for Leicester, and has carried that right into the World Cup.

    England's lack of coordination is worthy of a pre-season friendly.

    Dear England,

    I know it's tough that football is not coming home, but giving yourself up after 35min. into the game is ****ing crap.
    I hope Southgate has a few words..

    I can't believe we haven't finished Engeland off by now

    I always find it odd when they blow for HT or FT on a corner. It's not like they were time wasting.

    Can't play a pass to save his life, though.

    That’s why he is just solid :) Otherwise he would have played for a bigger club.

    Belgium's goal was one of the nicer fast breaks of the tournament. Wish the Raptors did it as well.

    I disagree. He's not going to wow anyone with his ball playing abilities, but he can be relied on to make short and safe passes when needed. He's best paired with some players who are better with the ball than he is and will complement his strengths.

    Fair enough, I don't really watch Leicester, I just judge from what I saw that tournament. He reminds me of old school defenders, very solid defenisvely but leave creation to others.

    Maguire can struggle with quick passing I guess. But give him some time on the ball and he will find his options. Can make some nice splitting passes.
