Can't use the world cup as an excuse for being half pissed in work anymore

I never mentioned in the stadium, I just meant people on here having a bit of a go.

I think it's unfair to blame people for what they say during or straight after a game that was lost like this.

When the dust settles, everybody will be proud of them, and so they should. This is a team with nowhere near the raw talent of the "Golden Generation", but far more determination and gut. And dare I say, likeability.

Not an unrealistic shout.

If meant on a linear progression point of view.

It's completely fair to blame someone who's only ever attitude is misery.

Gutted.

Proud of the team tough. They weren’t good enough tonight and should’ve done better but this is a team that’s going to go far.

They’ve got more semi finals and hopefully a few finals in them.

I think we just need a bit of gile in the midfield.

Shouldn’t you just dismiss that though instead of trying to portray it as a common theme?

All our England U20s winners could be knocking on the squad door in 4.5 years time.  Thats something to look forward too.

Blows the myth about countries having small populations not being able to compete.

At the end of the day Southgate did an incredible job to take a really young squad that far into the tournament. He mainly did it through organisation and set plays and that got us to the brink of the final.

Didn't particularly think any England player showed what they were capable of tonight

The one world class player on show is going to be playing in the final on Sunday, and that is Luka Modric. What a fantastic player

The genius centre mid seems to be the most vital player, England have produced one to my knowledge in my lifetime  - Paul Gascoigne. I don't think they will win anything until they produce another, and that is a very big ask
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

You're right, it isn't a valid excuse.

Like Belgium last night to many of our better players underperformed, started well but, Kane, Alli and Lingard were all poor from the second half onwards.
