Maybe it's time to stop the Rashford wankfest and get off Sterlings back? Both are young players with plenty of potential but Rashford hardly set the world on fire tonight and showed that he isn't the wonder boy that some think he is.

I doubt anyone would have given a great account of themselves last night under the circumstances, to be fair. Ironically possibly Sterling, as the pressure would be off to an extent.

Nobody would be crucified over any miss in last night's borefest. Anybody who misses next week when it matters certainly will be.

I agree with Jimmy. If Sterling missed that chance last night it would've been back page news.

The World Cup may not be coming home.....but football has come home...to the place that invented it.

The England team has once again reached the semi final of a world cup, a cup they won in 1966, a cup we regularly qualify for and reach the quarters or last 16 at the very least....... they have restored hope and pride to a nation........we were a professional 45 mins of football from reaching a final we had half a chance of winning....
......can't say anything like that about Scotland can we?

Not from Scotland or a Scotland supporter, but it's hardly comparing like for like is it? England has a population over ten times larger than Scotland. For countries with an established history of playing football, you would expect countries with bigger populations to more regularly appear in finals.

Iceland's population is seven times larger than Alty's. However, I reckon if we were allowed to pick a team from everyone who lived in Altrincham we'd beat them.
