    I agree with you and I’ve said before that England is very overrated.
    Anything can happen in football of course but man for man I think we’re better.
    Have to play with faster tempo and much greater movement off the ball.
    Tight shape defensively with limited spaces between the lines.
    No dumb fouls.
    First to every ball.
    I don’t rate their Defense very much at all.

    I’m not impressed by Rice at all.
    He’s a worker but I think he’s nothing special.

    Spain defense is nothing special, same goes for their GK.
    France should have pressed them, snd certainly attacked the 38 year old Navas.
    Terrible job Deschamps.
    No team walks on water.
    Oranje need to take care of business starting with England tomorrow.

    Terrible job Deschamps.
    Why not attack 38 year old Navas?
    Mindless tactics by French.

    Spanish backline is very questionable.

    Logic dictates this would be a very slow, monotone game with both teams will look to keep possession, recycle the ball and avoid mistakes, especially given their vulnerability in their back lines…. but this Oranje team are capable of creating jolt in the attack when they are not sleep-walking! So yeah, let’s go with at least 2-goals scored by Oranje (one of them by Memphis!) And hope England will score less than two :D

    Be that as it may, we haven't scored against an England calibre team. It was 0-0 vs France where they were the better team over the whole course of the game (at least stats-wise).

    I wouldn't really look at form in the prior stages as a metric to gauge performances from this point forward. This game is a total toss-up IMO. I just hope for a great game of football where both teams show how much they want this and that we come out on top in the end.

    Need to get at their defense.
    Boss the possession.
    Play fast.
    Dynamic movement off the ball.

    Either way Malen can't be worse than Bergwijn, surely, and he's a better dribbler and finisher.

    That was the worst penalty call I’ve ever seen in my life. Does anyone think that was a penalty? I’m watching via sky sports because I’m on a flight and even the English commentators were skeptical. Wtf was that? Why always us?
