Why is Robbie Williams?

Yes mate, put it this way someone looked down on us when Harry Kane’s mum conceived him.

We should have had a pen tonite & dominated without creating a killer chance in the second half but that man again came to the rescue.

Been an interesting World Cup so far, nice to have something shorten that big gap from now til August.

I could've scored the two goals that Kane scored. As for Walker? Stupid knob cost me 44 quid. Whatever the pundits might say about missed chances, to a large extent England were outplayed by Tunisia - certainly out-passed. They are an utter disgrace. A lucky disgrace - for now.

Sorry I can't agree with you here. England were by far the most dominant team. Several poor misses, two clear cut penalties unawarded, very little luck.

Tunisia were very poor, had very little attacking possession. I would say on a par with Saudi Arabia as perhaps the poorest performance so far. Their keeper(s) did well though.

On another day, it could have and should have been 4 or 5 for England.

Might I suggest you're letting your betting slip do the talking as I think you were watching a different game. First 35 mins we totally dominated and If Lingard had connected with his 2 chances the game would have been done at half time. Very dubious penalty for them that was not matched by 2 blatant ones that weren't given at the other end.
Second half they put 10 behind the ball and made little attempt to cross half way. To be fair, we didn't look great at breaking them down, but at least we kept playing to the end.
Great perfromance - no. But certainly not a discrace.

I try not to be, but I wind myself up every time. Every two years a major competition turns up and England don't, and I promise myself that I won't get hyped up about the next one, and then I do. I don't think I've been less hyped for a world cup than this one, but within 20 seconds of kick off I'm screaming at the tele and dreaming of football world domination. Watching that second half my hair got a bit greyer, so thanks for saving my sanity Harry.

Maybe this time....just maybe. Get out of my head please.

I hate football.

nailonhead IMHO. Encouraging performance but England's wastefulness in front of goal concerned me and let's see how England cope with a team that wants to take the game to them before we get carried away...which we will, given half a chance. :wink:

Unfortunately, not quite but almost...left hanging out for their spirited but lacking in quality football team.

Still, Belgium have actually done what England should have done to Tunisia.

My anger has subsided and yes England could've won by 5 or even 6. BUT the close passing of Tunisia was superior to England's. It was only pace that gave us the edge. Can you name another side in the competition that would've wasted all those chances? We'll scrape through tomorrow but I'm not relishing the Belgium game. We'll come 2nd and play Japan. Might get past them then it'll be a bumpy ride. :oops: Sorry I think it'll be Senegal - might not make it past them.

Ooops so wide of the mark. That’s probably why you didn’t have any success with your betting slip

Very impressive performances against two weak teams, but nevertheless fun to watch. The Belgium game is a dead rubber, and group H looks v. poor so I expect to only see a real test in the quarter finals. It will be interesting. Maybe we will lose to Japan, (columbia or Senegal), but I don't see it. A top 8 finish is still a remarkable achievement, and with some luck (and with no Young, Loftus-Cheeks, or Sterling.. please) we could even reach the semis.

After last night, I'm thinking Germany!!!
Surprised not more comment on here about their demise - was off the sofa jumping about as Son raced away to score the second - mind you I'm currently in Asia so it was late and I'd had a few by then. Couldn't stop laughing for 5 mins!
