yannick ferreira .. great winger or frontman .. belgium have the power to surprise in this tournament.. I hope we are up for the challenge too.

My three at the back relies heavily on barkley and dier smashing their midfielders to pieces whilst keeping free of cards .. bit of a tough ask.

Looks pretty solid. Coleman knows what he's doing. I personally would've had Gareth Bale in for Gareth Bale but he can do work as a sub.

Brilliant match and brilliant result. Terrifying at times, but deserved victory in the end. Ben Davies is a hero.

Also, ban Skrtel.

Copying my rant from GFD.
Typical gooseberry fool England. 9 Euro tournaments and still no win in the first game yet Wales do it in their first tournament against Slovakia who looked a hell of a lot better than Russia.

In all the Euro tournaments I've been old enough to remember England have taken the lead and gone on to draw or lose.

Euro 2000 2-0 up against Portugal. Lose 3-2.

Euro 2004 1-0 up against France. Lose 2-1 in injury time.

Euro 2012 1-0 up against France. Draw 1-1.

Euro 2016 1-0 up against Russia. Draw 1-1 in injury time.

Sterling's performance in a nutshell - Receives ball at or runs with ball to the edge of the box... "eton mess, now what?"

I thought all England's players had a good performance except Sterling and all Kane seemed to do was take corners, didn't really do a lot else. Russia were awful, that's what makes this result even more annoying.

Why is Kane taking corners. I thought the point was him on the end of them?

Vardy is far and away our most exciting, unpredictable player. He simply HAS to start against Wales.

So Milner has one job to do when he comes on, settle the play, work hard, defend well. He slips up, losing possession when we were in the corner (Wilshere keeping the ball very well, must be hard to play with people like Milner for such a great player) and then closing down the cross awfully on the goal.

Sterling was good in the first half but in the second half he was poor, shame

Also Kane had a bad game but hey ho. If we play like that we will score goals but need to do it a bit better

Unlucky not to get the win as England were by far the better team. Roy's decision making still leaves a bit to be desired though; can't believe he didn't bring Vardy on at all against two centre backs with a combined age of 70 and why is Kane taking corners when he's the man you want to be looking for in the box?

Walker was magnificent by the way. I thought he was going to be our weak link.

I've got a gut feeling we're going to beat Wales, purely based on both teams performances.

Reckon Germany could get a record big win against Northern Ireland if NI play anything like today.

England not scoring in the first half was their undoing. Maybe they should have two strikers on the pitch so that they've got more threat in the box? And Kane taking corners is not right, especially when he's the only striker on the field. :roll:
