Being serious, this generation could easily take home a major international tournament honour once they mature and add some of the stars of the U-21/18 wins.
Future is bright lads, genuinely.
This tournament was a huge win for England. As you guys said, it’s got the fans back reconnected after losing touch with the English NT.
People felt proud to support England again. That’s a big thing.
Also, doesn’t matter who you played, previous teams would never have made it past Colombia, or Sweden.
And the play was much better, so the reason for closeness in their games wasn’t England being completely shite (as it was before) but them not finishing the chances they create (like Peru or something whoever we all loved). They played good, organised football, with a plan.
This is not something that could he said before. I didn’t watch the 1st half but was Sterling starting? I dont think he was, but I hope people realise you need people like him and other creatives to link with Kane and give him service, so instead of abusing Kane (which I already see on ITV) you should look at producing another Gazza.
But as I said, future looks bright. Chin up folks. Your boys did you proud.
A diverse team from all kinds of backgrounds banding togetheshowing exactly the England we should strive for doing the business. Great stuff. Keep this attitude.
I already said I found it much harder to cheer against this England team than before. I even wanted yous to beat Colombia for a while lol. Luckily your media come through though.
