    Better players?

    Which of the England players play for Real Madrid and Barcelona again?

    Yes - far far better players - but they are mentally feeble.
    After 10 minutes I’d expected at least 3 nil to England.
    But we cannot cope with success.
    We are SCARED OF WINNING.
    Southgate has changed absolutely nothing.
    We have been poor.
    Some players have played to their potential - but others haven’t.
    You win nothing with half a team.

    Quite a few good threads on here tonight with sentiments I agree with from Barnsleyreds, fitzytyke and redrum, amongst others. Shame then that this one has attracted the most prominence.

    It beggars belief that people can't give the other team some credit, especially one that contains some hardened, seasoned experienced players and an entire midfield and strike force made up from Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and Inter.

    This is a Croatia team at its peak with some real talent. The England team should peak in the next four years and this was a major and pleasantly surprising over-achievement on our journey.

    Sorry but I am not having any of that. I disagree. We just came up short tonight.

    Spot on that mate. Said to my lad how they had chased down our back line when we were playing the ball out from the back.

    I spent quite a bit of time in Croatia in the late 80's (when it was still Yugoslavia). My ex used to design gardens for the bloke who ran Yugo Tours.
    They are football mad over there. Only 5 million people. They have my total respect. Best team on the night.

    Why is anyone surprised by this toss? Time and time again YN has shown he knows absolutely nothing about football. This is no different.

    Feeling nothing but pride for our national team. We punched above our weight and beat expectations.

    We'll be even more competitive when the Euros roll round.

    Good stuff as far as I'm concerned, chuffed to bits.

    We lost to a team that on the night proved to be better than ours. Croatia have a squad packed with
    individuals who play for some of the best teams on the planet. Only one, Lovren plays in the
    English Premier Division. Not a " pig tatey among 'em to my mind". Could all work the ball and
    exploited the gaps that were left very well. Let's give credit where it's due. Well played Croatia.
    Unlucky- yet again England and good luck for the future.

    Very proud of the lads tonight ,but they looked knackered in the second half and remember Croatia had an extra day days rest so Southgate should play all the lads who got no game time on Saturday.

    You literally have to be contrary don't you?

    When the rest of the country is saying England did their absolute best but were outperformed by a better, more experienced side, you just have to start a thread (with obligatory CAPITALISED WORD in there somewhere) saying the opposite for attention.

    Seriously man, give the lads some credit. They've defied expectations and given us a summer to remember, and it's only early July.
