 England v Croatia
Topic Originator: GG Riva  
Date:   Sun 13 Jun 13:26

Too nice a day to be sitting indoors watching a game of football, either as a neutral or an ABE fan, so I may settle for watching the highlights later. I think Croatia are nothing like the team they were at Russia 2018, so I think England, with home advantage, will exact some revenge for that semi-final defeat.

2-0.

Bit surprised Trippier is in ahead of Shaw tbh. Still think England should win but their starting eleven isn't quite the strongest England XI there is IMO.

Have to agree LPF, Shaw has been outstanding for Man Utd this season. Probably thier most consistent performers. Strange why Trippier is playing out of position before him. I reckon he can't be 100% fit

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

Cant believe he is starting Sterling, he has been in poor form for months.

Sterling is one of those players who can turn a game in seconds, I think he will be one of the English heros in this tournament

Would seem to be the most logical reason if its not a fitness issue for Shaw.

I think Ferdinand actually got Sterling's inclusion correct in the build up. Outside of maybe Rashford he's probably the best at running in behind Kane when Kane drops deep. Although he's been poor for City he's been decent for England more often than not.

Bigger surprise to me is to see Foden right and Sterling left. I'm sure they'll interchange at time but Foden has been at his best on the left and despite Sterling saying he prefers to play on the left a lot of his most consistent form at City came when he was playing on the right.

Hate watching a game on TV when half of the pitch is in shade along the length of the pitch. Think the cameras have a hard time dealing with the contrast.

We all hate poverty, war, and injustice.
Unlike the rest of you squares.

Isn't the roof closed? It looked like it a minute ago but the lighting makes it look like it's open.

Neither it does. Can see it now that it's just a bit at the Croatian end.

I thought some of our games were full this season. This is unbelievably dull.

Even my 9 year old said she 'expected more of Croatia'. Very poor.

It`s always interesting to eavesdrop on the commentary for an England game. It`s obviously directed at an all-English audience with no pretence of objectivity.

Not too much for Scotland to be worried about there. Pickford had nothing to do other than act the fanny in the last few minutes. If England take points off Croatia and the Czechs, that will be good for Scotland, I’ve decided.

Due to driving I didn't see the game but I've now seen the goal, it looks like it's an OG. Am I correct.

It was credited to Sterling although it may have got a deflection on the way in.

I’m sure the BBC and ITV will be showing it to us again. And again. And again...

Croatia were very poor. That’s them lost 8 of their last 12 games the others being a draw against Armenia and wins against Malta, Cyprus and Sweden. They are a shadow of the 2018 World Cup team.
