A quick 20 mins we looked good. Now ermm we are starting to play far to deep.
Yes, chances need to be taken. Too many players, and us followers have a mentality that has growing nerves and fear the longer we go without a break through.

Well that suited Croatia. We hammered them for 10 mins then reverted to panic mode.
I agree that we gave them a good examination for 10 minutes, but to say we reverted to panic mode is a bit of an exaggeration. I honestly don't the Croats have looked the better side at any time in the first 45. Mount and Phillips have been the pick of the England players for me so far, and Tyrone Mings has not looked out of place.

Yeah it’s not all bad and we just need to take it to them more. It’s winnable, it’s still 0-0. I just get the feeling the more we give them the ball the more confident they get. I’m too used to watching England!

Hopefully we might see Grealish at some point. Agree Phillips has done great so far.

Cracking England move, Mings lays it back perfectly and Sterling shanks it yards over. Just like watching the Blues.

I predict he is going to be one of the surprises of the Tournament.
Agree. Really mature performance. Thought Stones and Mings looked solid too. Pickford worries me sometimes. But hey, we have to take those 3 points and bank ‘em! Wasn’t pretty but who cares.
