    No. You are welcome. Unfortunately this is the part of the England tournament exit where the unity disperses and fans start swiping at other clubs. Happens every two years.

    Its gonna be a bit shit for a few weeks, but this place will pale in comparison to Twitter. That's gonna be a war zone.

    Most ridiculous Golden Boot I’ve seen. He’s been average at best all tournament.

    That moment decided the game. 2:0 would be too much for Croatia.

    Kane is a great striker but nowhere near the top 5 players (not strikers) in the world.

    Strikers miss chances sometimes.

    Let's put it this way: if England didn't retreat and played the second half the way they did in the first, they'd have created more chances of similar ilk and Kane or Sterling will most likely have bagged one in at least.

    They didn't. England as a team bottled it in the end, but that's not to say they've not done incredibly well by reaching the semis in the first place. There's no shame in losing to this Croatia side.

    Many othes have probably quoted you on this, but 100% of all strikers would take that shot and he’s entitled to it.

    Was it one shot on target all game for England? Trippier's goal. If that's the kind of day , you need to score on the chance Kane had. Disappointing for England .

    That was a crap post.

    However, I do feel as if we didn't see the best of Kane. Trippier, on the other hand, was magnificent. Absolute beaut of a right foot.

    He should have dived again to win England a penalty.

    It was telegraphed. He didnt even place it properly, straight at Subasic. Should have aimed for the left corner. Then hits Subasic's foot and misses the second chance. A 2-0 and Croatia probably wouldnt come back. Lingard had a decent chance too afterwards, but you have to be clinical in the semi final, otherwise you go out

    Croatia is the second decent team they faced during the whole competition. They lost to both.

    In fairness-
    The original post didn't say any of you actually said that. It says the way you talk (now, not all of you, I think you yourself are the best Spurs poster on here-at least I think it's you) would make one think you have reached that level.

    It does because they qualified us for the next stage. The Belgium game was a game between two sides playing a reserve team because they both already qualified.

    The ones Kane missed were ridiculous though. Bebe would have scored from that position. To whom much is given, so much more is expected. Kane is labelled world class so when he misses great chances in crucial moments in a big game, the criticism is well-deserved.

    Oh yeah, you’re right. Nobody wanted to win that game between England belgium just to get the easy path to the final.

    Tongue in cheek mate, really hope he doesn't get the Rooney or Beckham treatment. He shouldn't but then the English media.

    I just think that the expectation of scoring every easy chance is a bit unrealistic. He really should’ve scored obviously but there is a case to be made here that better players than him have missed easier chances than that.

    Yep offside was called i think, so thread is redundant.

    Tbh i thought Lingard on the edge of the area was the chance to settle it.

    it doesnt matter how many goals he score he was average at best, captain who didnt really captained the team also, hes still a world clas striker on his day and most often then not he's playing at that level but he had a sub par tournament, perhaps the system didnt suit him or he was tired after the season, not sure but maybe it's a time to buy him lol, his price wont be that high

    It was called for offside. The way it works in this World Cup is that linesmen aren’t supposed to flag until the play has ended. This is so they can check it with VAR and see if the decision is right or not. With the Kane one, if he scored the flag would have gone up after it went in, and the goal would have been given after VAR reviewed it.

    Agreed, we got the midfield and defence bang on but missed a Lallana in the final third, I even think Winks would have done a job. In hindsight both would have been better than Dele. I would have played Dele in the hole behind Kane.

    Ironically, Sterling did the exact same thing in the last game.
