I’ve always wondered about this. I played football for a good 15 years. Some at a decent level. I still have scars up and down my shins.. especially the right. I never once screamed and yelled like a baby after receiving a bad tackle. You just didn’t do it.

Take the point. Something to play for on Sunday. All I could hope for. I thought 4 points needed. But obviously need to beat Hungary. At least they know they have to win and play accordingly.

Very much enjoying the @67YAZ and Shaquiri discourse. Fan of both.

Edit: Also, Shaquiri being the first player to score at the euros who was playing club in the Americas in pretty interesting.

Very entertaining match this morning!

The overhead replay shot from behind the Serbian net of the breakout and then eventual goal by Slovenia was a beautiful angle on that.

Is it just me or does Kane bear a striking resemblance to Christopher Pike? Not the rebooted CP, but the original when he’s in the box and can only communicate by pressing buttons.

That was too easy.

"Trent Alexander Arnold, he knows all about defending in that penalty area."

Does he?

Looks like the Danes are bossing the middle of the park. This England side should not be ceding that kind of advantage..

The cynicism the English commentators have for the England team is hilarious.

Chiellini calling out Southgate at halftime LOL.

Kane is so good at that striker's sixth sense.
Kane is the single best example of the old adage that great strikers go dangerous spots and just expect the ball will come to them. These guys just see the game differently.

Just don’t understand the concept of the attack from England. It’s basically a 4231 with a right footed left back who won’t overlap so the entire left side is basically dead then Walker both kind of stinks going forward and is reluctant to do so. So there’s very little width for the wide attackers to interplay and exchange with so you’re basically 4 v 7 or 8 if you don’t get forward quickly enough on the counter but they don’t seem to want to play on the counter

As of right now, Guehi has been the best player for England by a large distance.

Denmark look more likely to win it imo. But I’ve seen Jude too often save RM…

The English need to improve greatly. These have been average opponents at best, and both put the screws to the British. As soon as pressure is applied they wilt.

conditioning also seems a problem. You expect them to go a full 90 minutes.

Ivory Coast fired their manager half way through AFCON and went on to win the whole thing, England should try that. Klopp's available for a couple of weeks of work. :)

at work without video so I’m stuck reading the guardian liveblog, but someone mentioned that after the hockey line change the fresh new forwards started pressing Denmark high and the midfielders weren’t following
