after the rubbish we have been served up with in the first games it was nice to see two european sides show the world how football should be played. it was also good to see that it took another european to show the world how a game should be refereed i say well done europe
had a lovely fathers day with all the family and to cap it all mexico beat germany mexico seem to have a better side than given credit for. once again the referee got the big decisions right. the way Germany played today i wouldnt fancy their chances against sweden.
so we won our first game just good points though i think this squad will do their best for the country there was a lot of good football played but the finishing has got to be a lot better against better sides we would have been punished. saying that harry kane produced the goods when needed must say the team had a lot more punch about it when rashford came on for Sterling ,who now should be given a back seat for the rest of the tourniment from now on it should be Rashford up front. just one more thought seeing the terrible refereeing performanance last night. how come no British referees were asked to take part.
so the big day has come. will England continue on the path to the final or will our journey suddenly come to an end. my own opinion is that they have a much harder game tonight than a lot of people think. The knockout stages have produced some really good games and long may it continue. Now we are in the knockout stages, it is good to see that the bad and weak referees have in the main, been weeded out. watching the Brazil v mexico game and Neymers terrible play acting, one cant help thinking that Brazil and the beautiful game phase no longer go together. Having watched most games my own view is that the world cup is for Uraguay to lose, rather than any other country to win
so, can we really start to believe. this was surely Englands best game so far. how nice to see an England team with no prima donnas in it everyone working for each other. maguire improves with every game and Lingard surely has doubled his price in the transfer market. Pickford has got England through in the last two games with some outstanding saves. we also got some very good refereeing, for once. Two great goals which proves we dont have to rely on Harry Kane to score for us. I think harry proved today that he is not just about scoring goals So as i say can we really start to believe. I THINK WE CAN
