    Criminal this has gone to extra time, game should’ve been over at half time. We need to regroup.

    Absolutely thrown that away, Kane and Lingard could have put us out of sight

    It was a good tactical change from Croatia, pushing 3 up on Pickford and forcing him to kick long.

    Need Southgate to get their minds back in the game now and push on for the winner

    Too many aimless long balls.

    Too much attempted time wasting by England instead of seeking the deal.

    Cost us again

    I’m not sure I want to watch us against the French after 120 minutes and that performance :(

    England look knackered, can see them conceding in extra time.

    Must be difficult as Kane is doing all of our closing down. Player centre mid as well as centre forward. Trying to make his own chances as he’s not getting service anywhere else.

    Considering how spent croatiC looked in their last game and how relatively easy we got past Sweden I am shocked how knackered we look. Still fingers crossed we nick a goal in ET but less positive now :(

    We've looked a lot worse since Rashford came on. We can still win this though. Just needs a bit of luck, and a lot of grit and concentration.

    False truth. Work 8 hour days during the winter and close to 12 hour days in the summer. First couple of days you are knackered. After that you get used to it. Croatia will be the same.
