England v Sweden (Neutrals thread)
 
:haha:

How are us ‘non English’ supporters feeling.

I always want to try, but English progress in a tournament just highlights how far away from it we are....

Looking at it objectively, I think England will win. But...

Sweden qualified ahead of the Dutch, beat France in their qualifying group, beat Italy in a playoff. Then qualified top of a group featuring Germany, Mexico and South Korea. Arguably these are all more difficult games than the English have had since qualifying began.

Should be interesting and a huge chance for both nations.

RedReet 07-07-18 01:02 PM

Match has stinker written all over it. I'll have it on in the background while I watch the Chester game just to see how Kane adds to the shittest tally of world cup goals ever scored in the finals. Fully expect a Batshuayi type goal, Sterling hit the post from 5 yards out and rattles in off Kane's nose.

Hopefully it goes to pens again.

Myo 07-07-18 01:16 PM

i predict this is 0-0 going all the way to penos and england win it again...lol

Buzzo 07-07-18 01:18 PM

England also have a fairly poor record v Sweden.

I dunno though, I’m fearing the worst. A pretty dismal England team in the Semis of the WC...

labourRed 07-07-18 01:18 PM

I have a wedding at 3 but if I was about I'd definitely watch the Chester game. This is sure to be a borefest.

spud_gun 07-07-18 01:41 PM

Come on Sweden.

I'm on holiday in England in the ext few weeks and it'll seriously ruin it if these fucks get to the final or heaven forbid win the fucking thing.

spud_gun 07-07-18 01:45 PM

Should be noted I got Sweeden in the works sweep :D

Jaco_Pastorious 07-07-18 02:09 PM

Will be surprised if England do not win

Kenneth 07-07-18 02:20 PM

Not me, I expect Sweden to qualify for the semis.

Never gave it a second thought when booking the.hokiday that England would have a chance of getting to the semis or the final.

Fredo 07-07-18 02:40 PM

I'll be watching the LFC match. :haha::rock:

The difference in quality in this game to the Belgium v Brazil is massive.

We are back to Chanpionship Playoff Final.

No way our game with Chester is that bad :rant:

Buzzo 07-07-18 03:30 PM

1-0 England

Harry Maguire, from a corner.

Buzzo 07-07-18 03:36 PM

Sweden are fucking rubbish :haha:

Have they even got into the English box yet..?

foresterbloke 07-07-18 03:37 PM

Sweden look very defensive with a flat pack four.

Buzzo 07-07-18 03:40 PM

They are just playing long balls every time which seems to totally play into England’s hands.

spud_gun 07-07-18 03:43 PM

This Sweden lot wouldn't look out of place in the Scottish Championship nevermind the English

Bender 07-07-18 03:43 PM

Sterling is utter garbage

I don’t see their plan here at all.

As soon as you see sterling in a one on one, you think no chance.

Obviously I´m not watching. Maybe they a waiting for Putin´s VAR system to penalise England for throwing out Russian diplomats :D

Buzzo 07-07-18 03:46 PM

Are England going to get to the World Cup Final on the back of a nifty corner routine?

Leyton388 07-07-18 03:47 PM

Can't beleive we got £50m for him.

Has a better chance of happening than Sweden scoring a goal.

foresterbloke 07-07-18 03:48 PM

FFS Sterling could have passed to Lingard then to Ali who was in a great position..

I hope this is an auger of things to come for Man City, both Walker and Sterling have been shite this World Cup. Stones has been good though.

Buzzo 07-07-18 03:50 PM

Keeper would have saved Maguire header if he’d just stuck his hand out.

Great save Pickford.

Proving the doubters wrong last two games.

Distribution has been shocking though

It’s been coming tbf.

Enough of this shite. Gardens getting watered.

Buzzo 07-07-18 04:19 PM

McDermotX 07-07-18 04:22 PM

The Swedish are bleedin awful to be fair....there's no 'factor' to them at all, and in fairness to England they at least woke up after the first 20mins or so, and have gone an grabbed the second to seal it.

Still.....I was hoping Sweden would score there just a few mins back to try and turn this match into something.

Shocking level of quality in this World Cup (despite how fun it's been)

Beat Tunisia, beat Panama, beat Colombia, beat Sweden = World Cup Semi :confused:
It's like those forever handy qualification groups have just been extended into the main thing. :haha:

nebbers 07-07-18 04:27 PM

Sombody has to do one of those Thomas Brolin jump spin celebrations at full time.

Buzzo 07-07-18 04:47 PM

Comfortable win really.

Some good saves from Pickford, but other than that a clear gulf in class.

foresterbloke 07-07-18 04:54 PM

I reckon Southgate knows EPL players have had a long hard season and has got them winning at 70% effort. I reckon semi-final will see a serious step up in intensity.

Chazza 07-07-18 05:45 PM

Unlucky you miserable cunts :rock:

Especially Spudgun with your big holiday to England.

A fucking holiday to England from Scotland :haha:

Does "neutrals thread" mean everyone from a country that's not good enough to be at the World Cup and hates England?

First 20 minutes was very poor, akin to watching a Championship game eg Cardiff v Sheffield Utd. Got better after that. England deserved to win. Pickford MOTM.

Alex 09-07-18 08:32 AM

Pickford? Really?

I know this is a neutrals thread but Henderson and Maguire had much better games. Pickford looked fine, but was rarely troubled. Solid when he was though.

Shaggy 09-07-18 08:42 AM

Henderson was the best player on the park by a mile.

dom9 11-07-18 12:23 PM

We need one of these for tonight.

RedReet 11-07-18 06:05 PM

Keira is easily amused.

labourRed 11-07-18 06:57 PM

World cup winning Dejan Lovren has a lovely ring to it.

Dopey as fuck looking squad England have, don't they.
