Hows that no a booking? Clearly seen red after not getting the foul himself.

Surely to fuck that's a booking!

Refs left the cards in the dressing room

Amazing what a young team can do, if they don’t do it this time they should be favourites next time.

Don't think so, they'll be to much expectation on them.

They've been like that for most of the tournament.

Sterling has pace to burn. If he had a better end-product, he’d be the complete package.

England just need to manage this through to halftime now.

Var has let them let so much go but good in some ways I think.

Personally, I prefer that to the Scottish game where refs are card happy, all within reason of course.  It certainly hasn't been a dirty WC.

it's the next 2 world cups that England set out to build teams capable of winning .

the success of their youth teams has shown they are on the right track. 

no superstars like the golden era .it's about building a team

Just for normal fouls, I mean. VAR doesn't affect that. They've clearly been told to try to manage games and keep players on the pitch and players are taking advantage at times and getting away with more cynical stuff than normal.

I think it got cynical at times when the players cottoned on to what was happening. Numerous times some things that should have been booked haven't. I don't mind a bit of argy bargy, but some of the stuff they've not been booking has been obvious, cynical breaking up of play.

Wouldn't disagree with most of that, however, weighing the cynical fouls versus the constant stopping of the game with multiple bookings and players missing games, I think the balance has been about right, though it will never be perfect.
