    I was just going to write the same thing. Great game so far.
    And another cracking goal!

    From all of the tournament play I've seen down the years, the factors that seem to be important are... 
    - a game plan that isn't based on charging around the pitch at top speed for 90 mins
    - rotating the squad to keep fitness and freshness up
    - an attitude of never feeling beaten if you go behind 
    - excellence in penalty shootouts as you're likely to face one at least if you go a long way

    Indeed. We haven't had a really successful "backs to the wall" performance for decades. In my lifetime I can only remember the win v Belgium at italia 90 and a really stirring 0-0 away at a talented Italy in 97 to qualify for the WC in 1998. The semi final in 90 was a stirring comeback but we sadly lost the penalty shoot out so not successful. 
    Compare that with the number of times I've seen us limply give up leads. Vs Croatia wc2018, Iceland euro 2016, Germany euro 96, Portugal euro 2000, USA wc 2010....
    We are not doughty warriors.....

    While I think this is true, I think it's just a part of the problem. 
    As individuals, I don't hink there's many, if any, teams better than England. But as a cohesive team, I think it's one of the worst in the competition. Interesting to see can Southgate do something for this pet peeve. 
    For example, Finland beat Denmark eventhough shots were for the latter 22-1. Well drilled teams can win any game and yesterday Hradecky weren't even really troubled.

    For me, it's not so much about the team Southgate puts out. It's about showing he is tactically astute and flexible enough to analyse and adjust as we are playing. 
    Got completely outthought by dario dalic in the WC semi final. Let's see if he has learned from that experience.

    Puts everything into perspective football is just a game, you could really tell last night that Denmark should not have played last night there minds really weren't on the game. Let's hope Eriksen makes a full recovery.

    Think UEFA got this massively wrong.
    If they truly care about the welfare it of the players they would have taken the decision out of their hands.
    The players had literally seen their teammate lay there dead on the pitch 90 minutes previous. I was literally shaking watching it at home so God knows what state the Danish players were in physically and emotionally.

    I had tears of excitement before the game, I was in tears from worry and shock when Eriksen dropped dead, and I'm in tears of relief from the following news.
    Have to say, I feel for those who are having borderline personality disorder. This has been tough.
    Hope he recovers fully.
