    We would have had 3 matches watch Wayne Rooney, then they would have flown home having not got out the group

    If only we’d converted those first half chances.

    Not to be this time :(

    Team massively overachieved, need to find some creative midfielders though.

    If nothing else that was a very entertaining game.

    Well it’ll save a few more town centres getting smashed up on Sunday.

    Let’s just hope it’s not another 28 years till we’re in a semi :)

    Pathetic capitulation in the end, disappointing way to go out

    Proud of you lads.

    Guess it's coming home next time then.

    Disappointing to go out, but I'd have been delighted with a semi-final before the tournament

    I wouldn't say that at all.

    2 years ago after they went out in the group stage at the Euros, then they certainly did let the nation down. No fight, no nothing.

    At least this time they have looked like they wanted to win, even if in the end , they haven't been good enough.

    Beat ourselves in that game, didn’t take the chances when we were on top. Croatia aren’t good, the one positive to take from that result is we don’t have to watch ourselves get rapes by France.

    Come on France.

    They were 2 terrible freekicks from Rashford at the end.

    Why's he floated them in and not just drilled them.
