Belgium will win again to claim a consolation.

The 'Bronze' generation.

They where unlucky vs France, they have next to nothing to fear from England.

England's work starts after this tournament is done. They must start developing quality midfielders. They must encourage more youngsters to keep moving about to become more cultured and adaptable to different styles.

Only team to have less shots on target p/90 from open play in the tournament was Iran

Good man manager, good at set peices, woeful at everything else

Out in the groups at Euro 2020

Just 3 out of 12 goals scored from open play again highlights the lack of creativity in this England squad.

On the flip side, it's the best set piece goal record at a World Cup since 1966.

That's why I'm hoping Lukaku can take it, even though Cripps and Mars will never shut up about that if he does.
