Germany winners again for me. Can't see a South American team winning in Russia and England's chances are hilarious.

Does the lack of response on this thread indicate a lack of interest in this event or is everyone away on holiday? Last night's performance by the England team was dire, rescued only by an injury time goal by the skipper. Maybe it was the heat and the flies that upset their pampered constitution.

England won, be happy, playing against 12 men and incompetent VAR assistants the score should have been much higher, 2 maybe 4 or 5 penalties should have been given. a scoreline of 7-1 would have looked a lot better on the CV. As for lack of interest the World Cup only started at 7 last night, forget the rest support the best.

On any other occasion England would have won by a respectable margin. It is easy to criticise but there seems to be a much improved attitude from our players. Hopefully this is down to Southgate and a young recruitment policy that has been seen recently. Getting rid of the old guard was a good move.
So far I have been generally impressed by the standard of refereeing but I agree that last night's effort by the officials was very poor.

I have been watching world cup games - but the competition only became interesting yesterday evening.
I was impressed by the first half hour of play and no doubt the heat and humidity of playing in the most southerly location didn't help.
I liked the togetherness that Gareth Southgate has brought to the young squad and it was good to see them all celebrating together like a club team.

Maybe they'll hold a family barbecue next...Then success will be guaranteed.

The game should have been over after 20 minutes...but once they'd equalised we didn't really know what to do.

Without Kane we'd be stuffed.

A bit like if we'd have been without Marriott last season.
