I'm genuinely struggling to think who we've got

Same here and despite all the praise for Southgate and England, the truth is France would have torn us a new one if we reached the final.

Here's a hint when you're in the box hit the flipping ball instead of trying to pass it into the net

At the other end, another excellent save from Pickford

Just turned on the 3rd play off and losing as expected. Belgium in 1st gear and cruise mode showing how to break with speed and purpose and now two nil up. England a lot of faffing around with needless passing for passing sake which is disease of the modern English game.

Apparently we played badly first half what I've seen 2nd half isn't very good either.

Dismal 2nd half no threat on the Belgium goal which shows a start weakness in our ability to create in open play. Kane certainly needs a partner but we need a driving creative force in midfield as well.

3 games without a goal for Kane now? his form has faded dramatically over the past couple of weeks

Good god how many Spurs played in that game?...answer too many. Agreed Belgium hardly out of 1st gear, Kane playing worse as each games passes and aided and abetted by his team mate at the end, the rather average Deli Ali.

So we miss the podium and end up with the 'highly recommended' rosette...lucky to get that in my opinion.

Even when England 'break forward' the opposition always seem to get 10 players back behind the ball? Why do we nearly always pass either sideways or backwards?

Modern trend in our football where managers seem to think that 70% of possession doing nothing will win a game.

We only scored three goal s from open play and one of those was a deflection. Players had chances to shoot but either tried to play it perfectly differed thinking about it or just bottled it and passed.

Don't know whats happened to Rashford at one time you would expect him to inject a bit of drive and pace into the game but he did neither today.

Jose Mourinho

In 2016 Rashford was on fire, but seems to have gone backwards.

Didn't see much of the game today but I'm not too surprised at the result. Belgium are a better side, we knew that before the game and 3rd place will make their lack of involvement tomorrow even more galling for them.

I won't get too involved in the general England bashing which has started up in here again, still got good vibes from the tournament overall despite ITV's ongoing attempts to make it unwatchable.

I read somewhere a while back that United have taken on an attacking coach now. So hopefully our attacking play improves this coming season and we actually get the most out of our forward players.
