    Had had a couple of poor games before the break but normally when Chelsea themselves are poor.

    I think another issue with Ben White might be he simply feels he should be starting and is not really one for being a bench player for weeks on end. The best bench Players are those who enjoy being in a team.

    And also they was the incident in the summer when he pulled out injured and it was reported he would recover at Arsenal but it turned out he was already on holiday when he pulled out and stayed there until the start of pre season.

    He says France have a superior 11. Bullshit. There's probably only mbappe varane that are superior. Carragher is another one who has a bee in his bonnet over England

    It’s not a lie to say this is our biggest game since 1966.

    It’s that big a game. I won’t say if we will win, that’s arrogant and presumptive. But we have a real chance.

    Dembele has to be the right winger and Mbappe on the left. Kane CF

    I fear for our defenders against Dembele and Mbappe !!

    Mbappe is getting all the media attention and in fact Walker was interviewed - saying that he’s not too worried about Mbappe though he admitted that the French flier will dash past him two or three times in the game .

    Oddly I think that Dembele is gonna be just as dangerous. I watch all the Barca games and he’s in fabulous form and more days he’s absolutely unplayable

    Im basing it on this tournament. Maguire has been immense. England have 3 clean sheets France none

    Anyway manimal I think France will win tomorrow not because they're better because they're not but because mbappe is terrifying.

    What's your guys prediction
    Iam quite 50/50..... I think england got a chance but they have to play 4 3 3 and not revert to 5 ATB. also france seems to struggle at times when they get pressed..... So it will be interesting to see. I think it will be close

    We need to target that the entire squad is either playing or is wanted by Europe playing teams. All but one member of the French squad is playing European football this season. Every European based member of the Brazilian squad is oalginf European football this season.

    It's not always given that players perform.... I mean..
    Mbappe could have also a shit day tomorrow.... Who knows. Anything is possible. But one thing where france has a big advantage is the coach. Deschamps was himself WC winner and as a coach also.... He knows how to handle a team in knockout stages. Southgate is by no means a bad manager. But on the past he struggled to make Tactical changes when needed to be

    Personally I think we'll lose. Beating France would be incredible but I can't see it happening.

    I agree. Maybe 3-1 or 2-1 to France. I can see us scoring as France haven’t kept a clean sheet yet but they will also likely score more than 1.

    Mbappe is fast from dead over a hour short distance .. Mbappe can just start running at speed and he will cover 30 yards before you notice plus he’s ambidextrous and can go either way when he gets to a defender .

    Just watch … Maybe Shaw will have some success but Maguire will be a sitting duck ..

    I can see it happening if we keep mbappe quiet. I don't fear any other member of the French side

    Stones will face him and he's done well against him in the past
