I enjoyed watching England, but the defence needs work. Still it's a team for the future if they achieve continuity of players and manager. Get some experience here and they will look good for the next Euro Championship, and the WC after.
I think it might be something to do with the fact that they are paid such obscene amounts of money and live in a world so totally divorced from the realities of normal life that they really don't give a shit one way or the other. We'll crash out against some remote archipelago with a population of a football team and two spares and Kane and his bezzers will be snorting coke off a whores buttocks before the stadium cleaners get their brooms out. Cnuts, the lot of them.
One of the major problems with a capitalist society is that generaly capitalists only want people they approve of to be rich and successful. And usually that cohort come from horrible nasty elitist c*nts.
They really don't like working class oiks making a sh*t load of money from a supply and demand economy, because it’s just not cricket

I've long been of the opinion that for the lottery salaries that these people are paid, some element of risk should be introduced to the game. Along with MOTM, the least impressive player should be selected by judicial vote, taken into the centre circle, blindfolded and shot in the back of the head.
It should sharpen their professionalism and give them the sort of passion that wins tournaments, not just gets them away on a jolly for a few weeks.
I don't get a choice over here, it's all la Bloody Roja. Mind they have been playing tired so far, so a surprise might be forthcoming.
Personally I dislike the cheating Portuguese and reckon Pepe should get a yellow just by walking on the pitch. So Allan's Snackbar and come on you Saudis. A draw would be a good result for them, but I can't see a win, despite crossing fingers and tying a knot in my willie.
Iran look like Morocco did the other day - they can get through the Portuguese midfield but they can't seal the deal in front of goal.
That Quaresma goal was a thing of beauty, but didn't seem to spring from team play. I still think Iran look the tighter team. Whether they can translate that into goals remains to be seen. Their set-plays haven't really put the Portuguese under pressure.
