I'm confident we'll win this, 3-1

Not underestimating Croatia but I think we have grown into the tournament and got stronger, our organisation and threat at set pieces will be too much for them

Here we go....

 


Why did Tong Po think running at Kurt with a flame would make any difference?

Believe we are more than capable however I see this as fifty - fifty.

Without doubt Croatia have a better midfield however I believe we more than match them in other departments.

Come on boys!

Defence? England fragile at the back.

We will win... just. And it will be a much better match than last night.

Really ? Based on?

Maguire, Stones, Walker and Young have all been superb

Apart from his worldy save, Pickford could have got a cigar out against Sweden

Truthfully fancy Croatia to win. Some quality players and will pack the midfield forcing us to play long ball. Southgate would need to change formations in my opinion. I hope England win but suspect heartache is on the way.

Same as watching Palace. Hope to win but expect it to be close.

We have exceeded expectations so no pressure (although the same could be said for Croatia).

 


It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.

3 superb saves against Sweden and at key moments.
Croatia have a great midfield but weakness at the back with their regular right back out, similar to Sweden. We have younger legs and pace. Sterling may have missed a few against the Swedes but their central defenders used up a lot of energy with his runs.

 


Bring back Brolin

Doesn't really answer the question tho, someone intimated we have a dodgy defence but I disagree. Our defending has been superb, we were so comfortable against Sweden it felt like a practice session

It was I. 3 superb saves does not a practise match make. Croatia vastly superior to Sweden in attack. Which suggests, say, 6 worldy saves to keep em out. And how many times have our defence been caught dithering?

I remember one worldy and a few other routine stops, from some speculative long range efforts.

You make it sound like Sweden were peppering our goal with shots and we were under serious pressure. You must have been watching a different game to me then

I haven't seen any dithering either, a team that can't defend doesn't get to a world cup semi

Ive been pretty calm so far but today I can feel the nerves. Whatever the result the lads will put their heart and soul into it and we can't ask anymore. I final would be truly unbelievable, it is on unlucky ITV though

 


The ups and downs of Palace have left me older than my years
