    And not worried, the ladies have a good chance of bringing it home next year!

    Holland will bring it home for the ladies next year so stop dreaming. Or did you forget the semi final last year?

    I didn't forget, no... but that was last year. (And also, well, England are my #2 next year... Canada first! )

    And I will say right now if there's any sort of situation in which Holland are playing the US, the Oranje will have my full support!

    Southgate has to go. Scoring from set pieces is nice to have but relying on that is the domain of 3rd tier teams which the England team is not.

    England should have buried Croatia in the first half and there's not a lot he could do about missed chances but his half time speech has to inspire them to come out in the 2nd half revved up.

    I don't get the inexperienced team spiel. This is what they do. They weren't plucked from the streets and thrown together like a ragtag bunch of misfits in some kind of comedic underdog movie. If people genuinely believe that, then Southgate did a disservice by not picking a team he thought could win the tournament.

    Kante was brilliant in the tournament but the final wasnt his best match. Miss de Bruyne in your squad. His anticipation, flair and passes have been of a very high level this tournament. Might even player of the tournament for me. Also why no Courtois?

    Yes, Kante was brillant at whole tournament and final wasn't his best, but not dissapointment, he pressed well. I agree with Kevin De Bruyne. His forward runs with ball and off the ball were excellent too.
    I think Pickford gave more impact to England rather than Courtois to Belgium. As personal opinion; England without Pickford could not reach semi-finals, Belgium without Courtois could repeat this success.

    Felt for Croatia in the final. No doubt that France have the superior team but they were back in and anything could have happened when that controversial VAR penalty call was made to put them behind again.

    I was hoping that Croatia could capitalize on Lloris' mistake and score another quick one while the French were rattled... 4-3 with 20 minutes to go would have set up a pretty amazing end to the game.....
