England...still not street smart!

First off, we won...that in its self is actually an amazing feat. Its only the 3rd time in like 30yrs or something we have won a game at the world cup, its actually astonishing for us.

So, my point is this:

When kane was hauled down the first time in the box, if Ramos, Gattuso, Keane, Ronaldo played for England they would have been right on the ref and gesturing about the foul, they would have been all over the ref as would probably some of their teammates...it would have been intense for about a minute; because they know, the next time the ref will likely give it.

By contrast what did england do? A cursory wave of the arm and when it happened again the ref just walked. The foreigners are great at this, remember ronny vs rooney surrounding the ref; or how about the argies vs beckham, street wise as are the Uruguans...the MAKE the ref note the perceived foul.

England need to learn and fast....

England were not rubbish, that is total nonsense. England were good first 30 minutes, then they did what they had to do, win the game. When you have the world`s best striker in your team, then you always have a chance. Cannot ask for anything more.

Well I doubt you have seen 11 better teams than England so far at this world cup, so shows what a nonsense rankings really are. Argentina, Spain, Germany, even France have all played worse than England so far.

Spain weren't bad overall, but can't see us going far if we continue to make the schoolboy errors we made against Portugal.

Sorry I meant to put Brazil. Spain played very well, but they still conceded three goals.

It's a good point GB. The players were far too nice.

Henderson and Young are the players we have who should be more vocal and demonstrative. However only the captain can approach the ref so Kane needs to be more forthright on the pitch.

Overall I thought England did alright. Southgate wants them to pass out from the back and press the opposition which suits the players. Tunisia ate no mugs and we dominated the game.
