You did us proud over the tournament.We just weren’t good enough tonight overall.
We are fated .
Fated to never win should have wrapped it up in the first half.
I was amazed this lot got out the group, so all in all they've excelled themselves. Croatia and Belgium were far better than us and France would have smashed us in the final.
As it is, Croatia are heading for a major humiliation instead of us.
Proud but so disappointed because we could have done so much better...
Agreed. Not disgraced at all. Well done England.
Best Panama, Tunisia , Sweden , and a Colombian side without their best player on penalties.
We set up well, but in the end, decisions from the manager cost it for me . Completely over run in midfield second half but no subs and we got deeper and deeper and more negative.
Alli off for loftus cheek on 60 mins and I think we see a different result
A massive wasted opportunity
A waistcoat wasted.
**** off *****
Youngest team in the tournament, no doubt this team can find themselves in this same position again in the future. They've done us proud and brought unity to the country.
Great tournament overall but what a missed opportunity.
Needed Alli and Kane to step up tonight but they were both very quiet.
Pickford, Trippier and Maguire in particular have come of age.
Very proud of this team. Some absolute rubbish on this thread. Not the time to start picking people out and criticising. Should be proud of our young team, put a bit of spirit into the shirt.
proud and ****ed off
Tunisia - W - last minute
Panama - W - I'm sure we'd all agree an awful side
Belgium - L - reserve side, nothing game.
Colombia - D - without their best player
Sweden - W - played well but goalkeeper MOTM
Croatia - D - end up deservedly losing
Very easily pleased.
Judge it honestly, they got the luckiest draw they could've ever wished for and couldn't even take advantage of that.
Beat nobody of exception, the two decent sides they played, they couldn't beat.
Stop judging semi-finals as a success, judge who they played as that's all that matters.
If Wolves reached the semi-final of the FA Cup after beating;
Then lost to Southampton.
What would I say? I'd be gutted and wouldn't be praising them.
I respect Southgate as a person, seems brilliant but the way this has snowballed and then clouded opinion is incredible.
Had three proper opponents and didn't beat any.
it's coming home, it's just getting diverted via qatar
Well done England. A bit disappointed but let's face it Croatia were the better side in the second half. We lack a bit of quality in midfield and up front.
Oh well. Now let's see the babies sign 6 world stars over the next three weeks to take the pain away
Yeah, well done to them - they over achieved so well done. For me we were lacking slightly in the CM. Regarding tonight you gotta kill teams off when you're ahead, had a feeling that not being able to get that second goal may cost us.
And sterling is ****ing ****e
Too right Jade, long ago fell out of love with the National team, love this team and should have won it in the first half, but we didn't but time to come again.
Tried to defend a 1-0, the British disease.
They've done well to get here but the tactical approach 2nd half onwards was appalling.
We’ve got to play Belgium for 3rd place yet
We can concentrate on the league now.
Performed to the level we could have expected. Well organised but lacking the experience at international level to craft a win against a side with a quality to get through difficult matches. This is just the start for these youngsters and I think if left to continue Southgate will build on this to give us a quality side.
You were amazed they got out a group with Panama and Tunisia when two qualify out four? WTF
Well done England and so proud of the lads
Who did they beat to 'overachieve'?
Oh well. Id have liked England to win tonight but I'm not as bothered as italia 90, euro 96 or even France 98.
Everton at home is only a month away.
Come on you wolves !
I'm sure a new contract must be in the offing for the wescutted management mastermind.
Very happy with how England have progressed - on to the Euros and next WC with bags of talent and a stable squad. My hope is that a lot of these players get a lot more PL and CL game time. Very proud of them.
Agreed on RLC. Alli looked absolutely shattered and that contributed to us sitting deeper and deeper and not being able to prevent crosses coming in from our left.
Great tournament overall but it is such a missed opportunity having been in control for the first 50-55 minutes.
I'm disappointing but for me personally the WC was just a nice distraction until the start of the Premier League.
I'd love you to be right, and I'm sorry to be negative- but he won't and England won't.
Let’s hope we start producing a few more footballers with some proper quality.
What do you disagree with?
This is a football forum, you all want to be ****ing cheerleaders.
Our midfield was never going to match theirs though. They had 3 top class players and we had three relatively average ones. Games are won and lost in midfield, ask Dave and Ruben.
Well done to Gareth & all the team
But what an opportunity missed, that's the saddest part..
