I think Stones and Pickford aren't far off. Walker when played in position maybe. Sterling gets all the criticism but Kane was by far the worst English player for me though bar the opening couple of matches. No pace….just seems to jog around for 90 minutes.

Kane is miles better than Sterling, no comparison's, at least he takes his chances most of the time where as Sterling is clueless, no England goal since 2015 and he has two goals since his bow in 2012, so thats 2, yes 2 goals in 6 years! Eek

You can´t really compare the two.. Kane is a good striker. Sterling is a shit midfielder. It´s not an either/or.

No way that Kane was fully fit for the last two games.

Are you off your face? Stones, Pickford and Walker are all world class but Kane isn't? Have you not seen his record for club or country? Bar the last couple of games he was banging them in…and don't give me any shit that they were just pens. Remember back to a time when England had a phobia of them. Fucker has just won the golden boot … if it was Griezman you'd be creaming yourself

Went missing when England really needed him. Selfish cunt didn't square it for Sterling at 1 nil up v Croatia either. Bottled yet another semi-final with the rest of the spurs boys.

My exact sentiments on Southgate taking so many of those Spurs players that bottled the Iceland game, but decided on giving them a second chance.

Amazed all the shit Sterling gets but not a single comment about Alli who was fucking abysmal. One header into an open goal from 2 yards seems to have glossed over how much he stank out this tournament.

Trust you to come to the rescue to defend Kane - have a day off. Even you have to admit he didn’t have a great tournament, and when we needed him he went missing, like for Spurs vs Juve and Man Utd

Can't stand Eric Dier either. So shit. Even his pen versus Colombia was saveable. Thing is I don't think spurs are shit, as they have some great players but the English ones are well below par. Probably why they play for England.

Incorrect. We lost to Belgium TWICE and looked second best in both games. Croatia bossed us off the park second half and we looked dead again like v Colombia when we conceded.

France had to beat Uruguay, Argentina, Belgium and Croatia to win the whole thing.

All teams England couldn't and wouldn't beat. If anything Croatia did us a favour as we were a game away from getting truly embarrassed.

Semi-final doesn't paper over the cracks for me.
