Good set-pieces today I hope Jose was taking notes, that Maguire is a real handful, liked him at Hull but maybe still not ready for top-top team defensively. Didn't think we played particularly well today despite the scoreline. Sloppy passes, not quite on same wavelength in open play.

However Lingard was effective and scored a wonderful goal, pleased for him and us. Young frustrates me so much, the only reason he seems to play must be for some experience, he offers nothing going forward or defensively even against absolute fodder.

Kane got MOTM for both games in some media, but I want to see more from him - 2 penalties and a fluke is not MOTM. I didn't realise MOTM is no longer based on actual performance!

I hope the boys keep their feet on the ground because that game could be a killer if we buy into the hype of the result. It was too easy, but fortunately the Belgium game should be a wake up call before the knock-outs.

Ken - Trippier is really growing on me, liked his interview as well, I see what you do with him now.

Beast i'm in bangkok so only saw a few bits of this game.
Looked fairly non competitive. Good start for England i'm pleased for Southgate. i'm not a maguire fan i think we have as good as him already in the squad.
Very open wc so far.

Watch out for the lady boy's carra😀😀.

{Ed001's Note - why do you think he went there?}

Regardless of the opposition team.

To go out and play like that especially the first 45 in a world cup group match was fantastic.

I can't ever remember the last time I was excited to watch England play

Even back in the golden generation times.

We may not have the best team on paper but we will cause anyone problems playing the way we are.

I'm not one for "I would rather finish second to avoid a harder knockout game" You have to beat the best to win it.

We've been crying out for passion and attacking football for years with England.

More of the same please on Thursday.

Lol ed, a bit of tender care after his big game last week.

{Ed001's Note - I thought he was going there for training as they have some lovely places to practice diving....}

Maguire looks too slow (including his thinking) and a few times decided to just dribble the ball into an opposing player.
Kane takes the penalties which he did well and completed his hat trick with a lucky deflection. I'm yet to see Kane do anything against a top class defence for both spurs and England. Yet he gets the 3 goals on paper and gets man of the match. I actually thought Lingard, loftus- cheek, Henderson and trippier were the most influential players today. But then again, what do I know, but before we get carried away with spending millions on Kane and Maguire just remember who these 2 games were against. Belguim game will be interesting and the last 16 when the pressure is on. Just see then who delivers when the stakes are higher and it's not always the usual suspects who step up.

For years I've wanted to see a clinics England side knocking in 4+ against these teams. Usually we go 2 up and slack off. Lingard, Walker, Trippier, Loftus-Cheek and Henderson all impressed although the opposition must be taken into account. Sterling did nothing, really don't see the fuss.

Played brilliantly against Madrid Supasub and he scored against Juventus in the CL. Pretty much always scores against the rest of the top 6 in England aswell.

It could be a little naive not to be aware who we could or couldn't play in future rounds it could be a pretty huge difference in quality . I think Belgium won't lose any sleep if England top the group and their team selection may reflect that against England but that stuff will be a whole load clearer by Thursday . I don't think it was as great a display as the score suggests they were pretty pants and in the world cup because of geographical location more than ability but we put them away well and it's not our fault they had limited ability . jesse looks good in a midfield 3, granted opposition wasn't great but a lot of prem games we will be heavy favourites aswell.

FFS, England just won 6 1 in a world cup game and people find problems to moan about. The first half was the best I've ever seen from an England team. My mates and I loved it. Now doubt there are always things that can be improved but if your English can't you just revel in the fact we've qualified from the group and played some great football?

25 Jun 2018 01:58:41
No to Maguire. Don't see him as much of an improvement on Jones. Enough second tier players like them. Top tier is what's needed, like Alderviweld, Varane or Boeteng.

For the final time it wasnt a dive i was taking evasive action 😂.

{Ed001's Note - of course you were Tyrone.}

25 Jun 2018 11:57:24
The best 1st half ever from an England team, really? But then I have been watching them since the 82 world cup. Don't get me wrong I'm enjoying this world cup in general for about the first time about 20 odd years but it was Panama. We should be getting out the cigars now and then.

25 Jun 2018 18:34:10
Yes Supasub, the best first half I've ever seen from an England team. I was born in 1974. Can you name me a better one?
