It wasn't rip snorting stuff, was pretty passive second half, against a Croatia team that's not in it's prime, but still a decent England tournament performance, which doesn't happen often, . Would still like to see more from midfield, 433 next time for me, maybe moving Mount back as an 8, or bringing Bellingham in.

I maybe wouldn't have started him but I thought Sterling was probably the MOTM, apart from the goal, he worked his nuts off without the ball, a lot of which goes unnoticed.
 
Sterling scores the winning goal and the interviewer asks if he thinks he's justified his selection

Toss up between Phillips or Sterling for me. Both played very well
 
Seems some people aren't getting just how much the afternoon heat had on effect on both sides today, and how much it had on the game of football as a spectacle.

As someone rightly pointed out, the evening game against Scotland will be played at a much higher tempo, more like a Premier League game, and will be a much more enjoyable watch for any neutral.

Phillips was quite advanced 1st half (25mins), we didn't play a double pivot, left Rice on his own in DM.

I liked it, typified by the goal he set up, he was my MoTM

Sweating like pigs with a hot dog in one hand and a Stella in another, "tempo was too slow, run"!!
