I wonder if we have made an agreement to let this be a draw. We have had no urgency at all.

Looks like the same performance as it was against Croatia to me, minus the goal

Heading away with the good lady wife so won’t be back on before the final. Sincerest best wishes to the ordinary English fans on here. Hope it happens for you 💪

I think for me it's partly about the connection to the area too. I don't hold much connection to the entirety of England but I love coming from Middlesbrough, I've lived and worked in a few places aro

Congrats, friends ...  🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 V 🇩🇰 @ Wembley  ...   Good luck to y'all!

Really think that midfield area in particular is us losing the battle over and over again. No link between defence and attack. Crowding us out as Rice and Phillips are sat in front of their midfield and our attackers are all too high up to receive the ball.

Certainly does seem like it.

Doesn't make much sense though, as we still have to beat the Czech Rep to guarantee a last 16 spot and Scotland still need to beat Croatia to have a hope...which doesn't seem very likely.

Scotland have a really good midfield, probably as good if not better than Croatia's, if not having the same star power (or former star power as the case may be). It's their strongest area.

Bloody genius me

Everyone's gonna talk about the 'occasion', what part about that game suggested any kind of occasion from the moment McGinn got his yellow card? It was two evenly balanced sides, one doing ever so slightly more to try and win the game. Going forward an absolute shambles from us.

Not really a fan of it, but I think England deserved to be booed after a showing like that.

I know its tinfoil hat, conspiracy theory stuff, but as Wilson and Smogster said,. it was played out almost like a friendly...like there was a gentlemans' agreement beforehand.

We made a lively start and looked like we could inflict a heavy defeat on Scotland for the first 10-15 minutes...then played the rest of the game like we were settling for a draw. The contrast couldn't have been more stark.

Scotland played with a lot more urgency and authority as the game wore on, but only really troubled England's goal 2 or 3 times.

Weird game and ultimately very disappointing. Should have been a nailed-on win for England and allowed Southgate to give the squad players some game time against Czech Rep. A nice easy route to the last 16.

Instead we now have to at least draw...which is a tricky proposition. best to go for the win and be satisfied with a draw. But part of me is worried Southgate might try to play for a draw and we end up losing.

It does make it a lot more palatable if we pretend we let them draw 😄
