Two 4 - 0 wins is not bad, particularly as England usually perform poorly against the weaker countries.

Who knows, we are very inconsistent and the recent 4-1 win over Albania was quite flattering (so I'm told). All I know is if we finish group in second place I will be content.

4:1 flattering? If you can look at the 3rd goal. Lewandowski creates a brilliant goal.


I'm predicting at least 1 Stirling dive in the box tonight.

Poland !:1 England. Brilliant goal to Harry Kane. Truly one of the great striker. Cant blame Tottenham not releasing him at any cost. Irreplaceable.

I didn't watch the game, but was told we had about 4 or 5 chances and scored most of them and Albania weren't that bad.

Will take the point with england given it was a late equaliser.

Have to question why Southgate didn't go to close out the game.

Sterling certainly stuck with his go-to tactic trying to buy a foul by impersonating a crash test dummy. Dummy being the operative word, was absolute shithouse again, the better the opposition the more a liability he becomes.

Again, not seen the game yet but have been told that the German ref was useless.

Drawing with poland is just unacceptable. 92nd minute is even more ridiculous, game should have been dead and buried by then and that least 4-0.

England controlled possession but 4:0 is a massive stretch . The GK's on both sides were hardly troubled apart from the 2 goals.

That's the point, he should have been tested and poland pushed. Southgate was happy with 1-0 and it cost us.

Agree, he's too defensive, too boring and totally unwilling to take a risk. He looks at a 4-0 win against a San Marino as a job well done, whereas for me it's half done, we should be seeking to give them an absolute drubbing. With all due respect to Poland, we should be sticking 3 or 4 past them as well.

His use of the bench in the Euro Final was poor but this was crazy he is allowed to make 5 subs and made none. Sterling had a shocker and yet never came off.

I wonder how much will be in the media about the trouble caused by the Hungary fans.

In terms of the game, Southgate got it wrong AGAIN. We are one of the best teams in the world and drawing with the likes of Hungary and Poland is unacceptable.
