Gutted.

Griezmann stuffs up my 3-0 half-time bet with a minute to go :no:

To rub salt in the wounds, I had him as first goalscorer.

Unlucky, I was thinking of your prediction and timing the 3rd goal just right, but France and Griezmann had other ideas.

Is anyone have France to win 8-0, annoying part I have 4-0, surely France will not play keep ball for 45 minutes, which I be over the moon with.
I have one bet up with over 3.5 goals
I have Payet to score and win to nil with eight plus corners, I need another six I think.

Here we go for the second half.

Lets hope they put 10 men behind the ball and France play a boring possession game.

But I think that France players has all chances to win! Do not be so strict to them

rather exposes England for what they are, doesn't it

Lack of tactics, yes but also a complete absence of basic technique.

Wow what a game...
Wow 2: O Giroud could be top goalscorer will put his
Arsenal fee up.. :cool: Another 2 goals in his bag.
Best match watched so far, and enjoyed as the pressure was off,
ie No England there..
So France V Germany could be good game!!
O Giroud V Ozil...
Yes nice watching the Arsenal players,, :cool: especially they
in form.
Shame Ramsey won't be playing SF etc....

Your words Geordie are the most important 2 areas we need to look at in relation to England.

I have heard a lot about managers, heart, the FA, too many games etc, but tactics and technique are where i think we fall down.

Iceland even against one of the best teams at the tournament stroked the ball around and created chances, their tactics and technique against the French to my eyes was better than Englands had been in 3 games.

I thought the pitch didn't help the French but unlike England they have a lot of quality players + can change it from the bench if things are not going well.

I believe Englands' woes have to do with a lot of things but too many games are also the reason why they haven't won anything since 1966. They get to the Euro and World Cup completely knackered like Ronaldo who took a fortnight off just before the competition and look how terrible he's been. They're all craving for a holiday and rightly so.
