England - Not through yet

Lose away to Russia, which is a big possibility, and we got back to third place with only 2 games to go and Russia likely to win them both. Good result last night but away to Russia will be bloody hard, and im not sure we will get anything from it. The press seem to have forgotten the away game will decide who goes through (probably)

If we beat croatia at home, then its in our own hands.

"If we beat croatia at home, then its in our own hands."

Surely that means that it is already in our own hands!

If we play the same XI as the last two games we'll walk it.

Finally an England side with balance, power, pace and a direct threat to their play.

Based on what?

I didn't think they had it in them, but England looked a good side in their 2 easy wins. Time to optimistic again, and fancy them to get through. From what we saw last night we shouldn't have too much trouble getting at least a draw in Russia, even though the have the greatest manager in the world, apparently

Had the goal stood for them things could have been different. Good performance from England but how would they perform if they went a goal down? Russia played good football at times, carved open the dodgy defence with ease at the start of the second half.

They're playing well and riding their luck but the game in Russia is no formality.

2 victories 6 for none against couldn't have asked for any more i was the first to criticise the inclusion of barry but i thought he had 2 good games and tracked back well which was just as well as the defence did look a little frail at times, ferdinand and cashley were caught out time after time
don't think we missed lampard either
