    These beefs should be sorted out on Zoom for the era we're in.

    Most Benzema finish of all time there.

    I don’t think that goalkeeper’s team-mates will be saying, ‘Hey, I think you can carry us to the next round.’ You know, carry us? Like Karius? High profile goalkeeping errors?

    Looking forward to the £90m we get for Origi if McGinn is worth £50m

    Agree completely, but for whatever combination of reasons England can't beat big sides the way others can despite having some quality players and won't get practice at doing so again until the knock-out stages of the next tournament. They'll tear up San Marino, Latvia, Liechtenstein and Andorra in the qualifiers though.

    While they're not alone in it, I don't think England are helped by being the top seed in qualifying groups for the main tournaments. They generally can't handle the bigger games when they arrive. I'm not sure what a team and manager learn by beating Andorra and San Marino. Then there's a situation where they end up being booed by their own fans after the Scotland game, in a group stage that they end up finishing top in. This dynamic is undoubtedly damaging to them too. Bale and Ramsey aside, Wales don't have the same quality, but I'd imagine team spirit is a thousand times better and players and manager aren't afflicted by the same overthinking and fearfulness as they know that their country has their backs.

    This has been a really flat group with generally dull games. No real tension at all tonight. Shick’s goal will be the only thing anybody remembers about it in a week’s time.

    England generally look better in the four games they seem to play against San Marino every year.

    Modric could probably still do a job at 58 years of age. It’s not like he ever needed to be particularly athletic or fast to be as brilliant as he is.

    Denmark v Wales - should be a cracking game.

    Eriksen would be proud of two of those Danish goals tonight if he’d scored them. Great stuff.

    Danish fans are great.

    Kjaer’s dad is an obsessive Liverpool fan, I think he has every shirt we’ve had since the early 1960s. There was a great piece on him in The Athletic a while back.

    Gini’s just a brilliant footballer. Excelled for us and his country in two very different roles. We’ve made a mistake by letting him go. Didn’t he play more than almost anybody last season too?
  16. El Rojo

    Euro 2020(21)

    Yeah, think it was pretty harsh myself. Yellow would have been fairer.

    Lovely goal by Shaq. I’m always surprised he didn’t get more opportunities with us, even as a sub. Makes things happen.

    So you’re saying Arsenal should be plotting a £40m move for Isco this summer?
  19. El Rojo

    Euro 2020(21)

    Surely even an out of form Isco or Asensio are a better bet than some of the duds padding out their squad. And despite not having shoulders, Aspas is more potent than Morata.

    I’m sure Levy will make the right choice for them, like he always does.

    On the evidence of the last two games. Spain are about as good as Brighton.

    Yeah Jota - pass to Ronaldo every time. Last ten quid I throw on you being top scorer. On the positive side, I have a scapegoat for next season.

    Harsh on Loris. Not every goalkeeper can work with Achterberg and learn the essential wax on wax off skills like Gulacsi, Alisson and the rest of best.

    Not sure about the scripts on the new season of The Office.
