    If we play how we have against a better team we would have conceded one or two

    @truegunn3r just turned his TV off in disgust.

    I’m just happy we’re winning. Kane got his goal but it proves nothing. It was from a counter attack. We may go on to beat Senegal but we can not win the tournament with Kane up front. The man vacates the box way too often.

    Shows not only because Hendo scored but playing Bellingham as an advanced midfielder in a midfield 3 is working wonders for us. Hendo being there allows this to happen, Southgate's at the wheel, it's coming home

    That’s what happens when you do not have a creative midfielder. Kane is the most creative player on the field. Him dropping back brings defenders out and opens space for the likes of Saka, Foden, Sterling.

    He has 3 assists and a goal know. The tactics Southgate is using with Kane and the attackers around him is clearly working.

    The last 10 minutes of that half was electric. We’ve scored a lot of goals in quick succession so far.

    Very lucky to be 2-0 up here, much the worse team for large periods. But classy when it mattered.

    Bellingham the difference maker so far - Henderson's start clearly justified too with a well taken goal.

    Saka has been poor, Rashford should've started, but now we have the 2-0 lead bring on Mount and let him work hard to sure up the midfield.

    The giveaways early on would have cost you against France. The Maguire and Saka ones especially. Take those out though and England have looked good today.

    We just need to get the ball forward quicker, it's when we dither around at the back that we cause our own problems.

    So weird how certain people didn’t celebrate or comment on the goal just because of who scored it :D

    Do you actually support England?

    Since this I am one of these certain people.

    I never celebrate goals on the forum or talk much about goals, I celebrate them in real life. Same goes for Arsenal, Saka goals etc.

    I just make random comments I'm thinking about during the game, usually about tactics or having a go at Mount

    I wonder of people would hate Mount so much if he wasn't a Chelsea player

    For me it makes no difference who wins any matches, but from what I've seen so far, Mbappe won't have much problems against Harry and John. Kyle Walker will have to really be at his best to stop Mbappe from counters on Saturday?.

    Don't know tbh. I think I just often do it, just like I for some reason use both names for some like Kyle Walker or Christian Eriksen.

    Forgot Foden was even on the pitch, I've seen Bellingham run that left flank perfectly, is Foden playing LCM or something

    Saka only scores when the game is out of reach. Being carried by his countrymen.

    Credit where its due here ever since we took the lead we have been brilliant. Nervy start is acceptable may not get away with that in any other game now though. Happy with the performances in 3 out of 4 games which has surprised me.
