Football (Soccer)

It says a lot when your world class midfield with Rice and Bellingham get dominated by a Hojbjerg-Eriksen midfield - two players who can't even get a start for their clubs. Southgate is painfully mediocre as a manager sadly and it surprises me some people think England will win the tournament.
 
Spain have already had better play and chances than us in just the first 5 minutes lol.
 
England have been woeful these opening few games, a half decent team would have beaten them comfortably.

I don't know why Southgate is trying so badly for force TAA into the starting lineup. He's a RB, sadly for him, Kyle Walker exists & is simply a more well rounded better player, just because he occasionally drifts into CM at Liverpool in games, doesn't make him a CM. As the pundits on TV said, it's not down to TAA as to why England have been so poor, lack of mobility up front that only existed tonight after Southgate had made changes doesn't help either.. but TAA isn't up to playing as a starting central midfielder against even this sort of 2nd tier of teams in the competition, let alone the likes of Spain, Germany, France etc.

Beating Slovenia isn't a given with performances like that.

On a side note, whoever at Manchester United suggested & was entertaining that donut Southgate as a potential manager of the club should already be fired.

Ukraine get a 2-1 to make that group very interesting now as only Belgium dont have a win yet and all will be alive in the last group games. Could shake up the draw for the knockouts depending on where Belgium finish.
 
Austria take an early lead against Poland 1-0 Great headed finish.
 
Poland make it 1-1, entertaining game so far with a great atmosphere, one of the most even contests so far. Hope it continues.
 
Austria back in front 2-1 after a lovely move and nice finish. Lewandowski on the pitch now though for Poland.
 
3-1 Austria - Arnoutavich from the pen spot, they have been the better side for most of the game.
 
Glad to see Austria getting a win after their decent attempt against France.
 
Spain take a deserved lead over Italy. 1-0 OG

Spain are the team England think they are.
Could only score from an own goal but they definitely deserved the victory and will be one of the teams to beat. They have a good energetic press (something severely lacking from England) and 2 great young creative wide players in Williams and Yamal.

Should have won the game by 3 or 4, created several great chances but dont have a clinical finisher as such.

France v Holland up next another classic Euro matchup....
 
How did France not score there?! Mbappe only on the bench today after the broken nose incident. He was training with a mask with France colours lol.
 
0-0 HT not a classic yet France in control to start with but Holland have had the odd moment here and there. Both sides look happy with a point at the moment. French missing Mbappe as a real threat obviously as well.
 
Wow, Netherland go in front! Oh no, offside.

His mask is so funny, he looks like a weird patriotic superhero. :funny:
I heard it wouldn't be allowed on the field though.

About tonight game, we had a couple of opportunities a minute ago but it didn't happen... and as I type this sentence, Netherland have just scored.

EDIT: Offside ! :oldrazz:
 
VAR rules out a goal for Holland, looked harsh but stays 0-0.
 
Final score 0-0, first 0-0 of the tournament.
 
First 0-0 of the tournament, pretty poor all round really but seemed like a game both were happy to get a draw and get through without expending too much energy. Neither side really committed men forward to really go for the win at any stage.

Haha, not allowed because of the colours?

At least still in a good position after that result and should have Mbappe back later in the tournament.

I can't tell you, I catched people talking about it on TV earlier, but didn't get the details...

Yep, Mbappe will be back next time. Apparently, we can't score without him... 😅
