England v Sweden (Neutrals thread)



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.

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.

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...

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.

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

We are back to Chanpionship Playoff Final.

Sweden look very defensive with a flat pack four.

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

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

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

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

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.

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