It would be really cool if we could stop trying to be so clever when our centre backs have possession.

Young vs Rebic worries me.

Judging by what Lovren just said, he really doesn't like Dele.

Tbf Dele is a prick :shifty:

We love a dodgy back pass this tournament. 

 

Good half. Nullified any threat from Croatia so far but at the same time I think they could exploit our left wing if they were a bit more savvy about it and we've had some good counters but lacking a bit of end product. There's more goals in this. Hopefully Kane 2-0 or Maguire and us not to concede please :)

England are really on top of defense, with about 6 players in the box whenever the ball comes in for Croatia. Can't see Croatia scoring at all.

I’m betting that Kyle Walker gets sent off.

Kyle Walker isn’t a centre back. 

It’s still worrying that we aren’t overly effective at creating good chances from open play.

Game of two halfs. Croatia have been the much better team so far

Walker hasn't been bad generally today. Still 20 minutes left in this.

He has made a couple of dodgey decisions in terms of passing back to Pickford. On the whole, I agree he hasn’t been bad, but I always feel he’s the one to slip up defensively. He’s just not a centre-back at all.

Just as I say that, that’s an outstanding header from Walker.

Croatia look absolutely pumped. Whereas out defence suddenly looks very nervy.

Gaps appearing everywhere.

This is fucking horrible.

Na, Croatia on pens! They're penalty veterans at this point!

Feel like that's the right change. 

Sterling has threatened with his pace but his final ball or shot has been piss poor. No point beating the defenders if you're not gonna do anything with it.

Overplaying it in the forward areas. Need to take the shots when around their box, test the goalkeeper.

      So the Woman's World Cup starts tomorrow, with hosts Canada facing China. Anyone else going to be watching?

      I'm supporting Sweden personally, them and Canada.

      We've got a month until the World Cup! So exciting!

      Anyway for some reason the BBC suddenly posted news about Japan's squad because Shunsuke Nakamura (the ex-Celtic player) has been recalled.
      However the best news is that Kawaguchi is back in the squad as third choice goalie! He's a total legend. A chirpy little Japanese shot stopping legend:


      My local team is Nagoya Grampus and we've got two players in the squad but one is Tulio who hasn't had the best couple of years.


      Is Jesus (Kennedy) in the Australian squad? He's Nagoya's big lanky striker who looks useless for 89 minutes and then bundles in a header in the last minute pretty much every game.

      Anyway, Japan are annoying me because their style at ANY kind of football is to try to dribble the ball into the net (a bit like Arsenal but less successful) instead of one person just deciding to let rip from around the box. If they actually shot from 16-25 yards from time to time they'd actually be pretty decent.

      We have an England thread, but not a general one, so here it is.

      Norn Iron are 1-0 down against Russia with around 25mins to play.

      Wales vs. Belgium is on Sky Sports later, and Holland-Turkey can be watched on ESPN.

      Fully expecting a comfortable Belgium win this evening. Can't see Wales handling them.

      Scotland play Serbia, and Rep Ire vs. Kazakhstan is currently goal-less.

      It may seem early but, bo-lieve it or not, the qualifying campaigns for certain AFC teams begin today. I'd completely forgotten about it, until I read this article on the BBC, explaining how a 'living God' was cheering on Bhutan in their opening game.

      The 12 lowest ranked sides contest a two legged play off to see who gets into Round 2.

      Some of the first leg games have already finished, including a shock win for Bhutan (the only team in the current FIFA World rankings to have zero points):

      Timor-Leste 4 - 1 Mongolia
      Cambodia 3 - 0 Macau
      Sri Lanka 0 - 1 Bhutan

      The games still to play/finish are:

      India - Nepal
      Yemen - Pakistan
      Chinese Taipei - Brunei Draussalam

      The second legs are due to be played on Tuesday next week.


      As for the other qualifying zones, CONCACAF begin later this month (23rd), and the CAF and CONMEBOL begin in October. UEFA are yet to reveal the date of their start. OFC are using the OFC Nations Cup next year as their qualification process.


      EDIT: We should so adopt a team in each zone as EWB's underdog team!
