    as I said,losing to Belgium was a fantastic result for England .
    suggested exactly that outcome after the Tunisia game on this very thread. Which was why I also predicted that both sides would make changes for that one.

    vs Sweden it's worth playing D.Rose for a bit of pace and an ability to check out wide (unlike Ashley Young). Rose more
    of a threat vs this lot.

    He has to get Rashford on the park sooner rather than later, looks more likely to score from open play than any of the others. Looks sharp.
    If Raheem plays, I just want him taking them on. Type of game that could suit him. Would play him in tandem with Rashford, those
    two would be a threat to Sweden because they have the pace and ability to turn defenders. Swedes can mop up high ball all day long.
    They'll set up like Iceland did, two banks of four lying deep. To unlock that pace is everything, hence the suggestions.

          • Not feeling it myself much more of a club man and more nervous when we play and certainly more affected by our results.

              And another Welshman right here who's been backing England since the start of the tournament. Always back a home nation.

                • Sweden had to evacuate their hotel this morning because of a fire alarm going off, sound familiar ? remember the play off in Cardiff, maybe some R's fans out there you know who you are?? just recalled the situation and used it to England's advantage. WELL DONE

                    • England have a better team than Sweden and Croatia(and russia) and they should overcome both,obviously France or Belgium is a different matter but thanks to the huge slice of fortune they were handed after losing to Belgium and ending in the way easier half of the draw,and by the fact I fully accept they are a good team they will never have a better chance to make it to the final.

                            It would be most presumptuous to assume that was just good fortune, and not a shrewd and deliberate ploy by Southgate.

                            IMO
                            YMMV

                            • Yep as soon as the Belgium goal went in we kinda stopped trying Even Rashford meant to hit that shot wide. Would always back him to score those normally

                                So are you saying Southgate instructed the team to deliberately lose against Belgium?
