Anyone who will play them will have to work for it. They really know how to dive.

Disappointed in Belgium. Kev had a poor game and lukaku was invisible.

Hard to say but wtf was Martinez thinking taking fellatio off for the last ten when they needed him up top for Long ball tactics.

Lukaku was poor. Kev landed one pretty one on his head late on and he didn’t go for it. Bog Brush responsible for the French goal. France will be clear favourites in the Final whoever they meet.

Didn't enjoy that game. I had France down for the win but I expected quite a bit more, not just defend and then hit quickly on the break, followed by throwing themselves to the floor anytime they got so much as a touch from the opposition.

It maybe the pressure of the tournament, especially getting to the final, but hoping this doesn't just fizzle out now.

Can I just ask, did Martinez screw that up by changing round personnel? Kev seemed to be a lot further forward from the off but more on the right of the 3. Felaini started and what the fuck was Chadli doing on instead of Meurtens?

I thought Kev was good first half and poor (for his standards) in second. Mbappe looked so dangerous but that cheating and time wasting was ludicrous.

I can't stand the diving twat but how Hazard didn't get a free kick on the edge of the box near the end was scandalous.

Meurtens was suspended and a big big miss imo. I do think Martinez messed it up but for me the biggest miss on the night was Lukaku. He had an absolute mare. How they would have loved to have Sterling in his place.

I think that was Meunier mate. Chadli, who has hardly played this season, is not a wingback and when I seen him there I just thought, 'You're fucked'. Mertens was a far better bet down that side, which showed when he came on.

France though, they disappointed a little but they won't be complaining.

Gareth Southgate is the first England manager to have won nothing at all as a coach.
His treatment of Sterling and Stones is utterly reprehensible.
He is a charmless, gutless, talentless loser whose career highlight is wearing a paper bag over his ugly head.

And that's why he's managing England JC - won nothing , done nothing , wont do nothing , bends over for the FA.
Perfect manager for England.


In case the Croats triumph tonight I'd thought I'd reprise my position

Patriotic BBC national TV just told us that France left 20 players out their final squad that were better than the England team.

For decades the BBC has not missed a chance to run down Britain/England. Heaven forbid there should be some jingoistic nationalism!
