yeh and there hasn't been a good one this century
Only because he was expected to play up front instead of Vardy, Kane or Sturridge. Playing him in midfield has neatly side-stepped that problem and Rooney's fitted into the role great. But then Woy, in his infinite wisdom, decided not to play Vardy anyway
I feel like he's just stubborn and wants to put his stamp on the team, rather than go with the most obvious choice. We finally get Vardy on the pitch and what does he do? Bench the captain and most consistent player so far. Two games and he needs a rest? Fuck that.
Start the strongest team, which include Rooney and Vardy, get the lead then take Rooney off if you want to protect him.
Do any other teams rest their best players in tournaments? I've never noticed it before, or any of these bizzarre decisions that only seem to happen to England teams. Spain are closer to qualification than we are, but I bet they still play Busquets and Iniesta.
France rested several players in last night's game tbf.
Similar to us in a way, in that they don't have a firm starting 11. I don't think anyone was dropped...more like he doesn't know who to play.
They had already won the group though
No they hadn't.
Um. He dropped payet. You know, that Payet.
I can't get used to seeing him wearing the number eight shirt.
I'm enjoying the French games more than the English ones tbh. I find England boring / funny.
And I'm guessing us, the taxpayer, are paying for Prince William to sit there in his lovely big box.
Come on England you dawgs!
We're playing well. Just need that elusive goal.
FA probably paid for the unless piece of crap to go out there.
why the fuck ain't he at the Wales game...
He was and possibly still is the president of the Fa.
Yellow cards only get wiped after the quarters at this tournament, so I think there's a lot of discipline management to make sure people don't get suspended before crucial knockout matches.
We had everything but a goal. Bring fucking Vardy on!!!
Is he not on already?
We've been "totally dominant" but we haven't scored.
We all know what's coming.
All that possession and chances mean nothing without a goal, innit. That's football. Slovakia could win.
Can someone give me a one sentence summary of English first half please?
Totally dominant but no goal.
English to finish runners up so I can watch the quarter final please.
Absolutely dominant against a poor team, but without the killer instinct.
Can you give us a one sentence summary of the Welsh one please? I wish I'd watched that. Just got brief clips during the England game.
The best I've seen them play in a long time: could have been 4 or 5 ahead.
Bilic is like a Hollywood nutty professor. But very interesting.
