They were average. . In fact apart from the two goals we were pretty poor. No good saying they are looking like world beaters when they most definitely are not.

I'll be the first to cheer them on when or if they deserve it. On that showing they didn't and will struggle to beat Belgium.

It get's to me when people think mediocrity of £100,000 + a week players is acceptable.

Our YOUNG lads played really well against a dirty team which are renowned for being difficult to break down. It could have been 6-1, the finishing touches just let them down, probably the flies got in there eyes.

Our defence looks a little bit ropey, it will be interesting to see how well the back four/five do against Belgium.  We will definatly get through to the Quarters.

Could have been 6-1 if we had anyone who could score other than Harry kane. Some of the finishing was atrocious and I'm not sure what Stirlings all about sometimes. They better pull their socks up all round if the want to  get anywhere near your target.

Having said that haven't seen an outstanding team yet apart from maybe Mexico's one performance.

You must have missed the Spain vs Portugal match. Spain played some of the best football ever seen at a world cup. A jammy penalty, a keepers mistake and a truly BRILLIANT free kick outdone them, the team are a true class act in every department, you can allow even the best of keepers an odd mistake.

Too early to tell after one game but class usually shines through. Certainly been some entertaining games.

Indeed this was a fabulous game, so exciting and some superb football on show for the whole 90 minutes....and then of course there was that Ronaldo free kick.....Real Class!

Dare to dream?  if we come first or 2nd in the group we will play the winners of group  H which is
looking like Japan and Senegal at the moment.  After that who knows.  The way I see it at least
Kanes not taking the corners which has to be a good thing.

Hate to be a party pooper and I hope I am totally wrong but I can see the first decent side England come up against will prove their downfall. Haven't seen anything yet from them that would change my mind. Dodgy defensively, a good quality striker will give them big problems, and a one man band up front.

But you never know, they could suddenly turn a corner..... ;)

Apart from Spain, England have played better than any other team in the World Cup. Great team spirit, no pressure like the old days, and Southgate is proving all the critics wrong, he picked the team not the media as has been the case in the last four world cups. GOOD LUCK BOYS YOUR DOING US PROUD

After watching so many disappointing England performances over the years in the world cup (Iceland still hurts), it was a pure joy to watch the lads totally destroy the opposition, saying that, at times I thought they had sent their Rugby Team by mistake. Now the world cup really starts for the lads. I hope and pray I am wrong but our defence looked really vulnerable of at least six occasions, in particular all along our left flank,De Bruyne, Lakaku and in particular Hazard are a whole different ball game, on paper it should be a classic.

More or less of the same opinion as tamkid. Good performance against a very poor side. But concerns over defending. The last game against Belgium will not be an indicator if qualification is not riding on it. I expect them to hit problems when they come up against world class strikers. And I'm still wondering what Stirling's about.

Croatia are one team I would not like to play against, they don't hold back, absolutely committed. The balance of our back three are the key to our chances, playing Walker out of his normal position could be our weakness, and Stones, though a brilliant back, he's a bit inconsistent, lets hope I am completely and utterly wrong - COME ON ENGLAND lets wop the Walloons, ever onward.

Bad day at the office, they tried hard.  Better luck against Colombia. They could do with a bit of target practice I think
