Southgate will go with a back five
I'm still in with a chance Portugal v Belgium.
I'm thinking I might just be packing my bags...
I was thinking that earlier. Rice and Philips to sit on Kroos and Gundogan, Shaw and James or Walker to keep Gosens and Kimmich quiet, then three at the back to deal with Müller, Gnabry and Sane. Leave the four up top to try and score with a bit of magic, or finally score from a set piece.
I can ser Germany raising their game for this. I can't at the moment really see much more from England than keep it tight and try and nick a goal on the counter.
Back in the game
Hope @Libby s got his ticket home booked already.
You Portugal then? You're doomed
A mate at footy told me Southgate had said we'd go with a back five if we faced France.
Hungary go home ...............but two draws in the group of death fills me with pride
We have such a good squad, I honestly believe we don't have to play at our very best to beat Germany.
Getting out of 2nd gear into 3rd would help though. Sad thing is I don't see it happening.
The only hope we have is that the expected "Southgate counter-attack approach" he'll no doubt set England up to play actually pays off.
And if it does, it won't be because of the way Southgate's set us up, it'll be because of the individual brilliance of one or two players to pull it off.
For the rest of the 90 mins I expect it to be a backs to the wall performance.
agreed. It rests with Southgate….so we’ll be out. I have zero confidence in the man.
interesting last 16 games now.
Wales V denmark
Italy V austria
Netherlands v Czech republic
Belgium v portugal
Croatia V Spain
France v switzerland
England v Germany
Sweden v ukraine
Some red hot favourites and some that could go any way.
the QF will be:
France/Swiss V croatia/spain (st petersburg)
Belgium/portugal v Italy/Austria (Munich)
Netherlands/Czech V Wales/denmark (baku, terrible place to go ffs)
Sweden/Ukraine V England/Germany (Rome)
The SFs are split per above.
there is certainly a really tough side and a not so tough side to the draws.
France/spain V Belgium/portugal/Italy on one side
Netherlands (hot favourites imo) v England/germany
I could see England getting to pens with netherlands 100%.
We can beat sweden or ukraine (ought to at least)
So this all boils down to getting past germany. Pens? not with pickford in goals. we need to get someone running past hummels over the top.
also could wales get to the SF?
their route is denmark and then netherlands so could they be a shock SF team?
More sheepshagger, surely?
I've got Sweden in the sweep
Just got sent a tik tok about a unique event in the Portugal v France game - Benzema scores in added time first half 46.44. Second half starts at 45.00, Benzema scores again at 46.44. He scored two goals at the same time
Oh us oldies are catching up with this social media malarkey. The dads get sent the tik toks by their lads and then share them amongst us. I wouldn't know where to go to find tik tok and/or use it, I just know how to watch them usually while shouting 'make it stop'.

Looking for an error from germany or ball over top at sterling who cant hit the target.
Kane stood round waiting for a pen.
