    Gary Neville is such a clown blaming the keeper for Russia's brilliant goal. lol

    England will be happy watching this, both sides aren't playing anything special.

    Technically Croatia is far better team. In last attack, Russians came in numbers with lots of space, then they were out of thoughts what to do in attacking 3rd - same situation, ball at Modric'd feet, he would have pushed a fatal through ball; this is the difference with good teams and great teams.

    As every minute passes, the more it sees Russia is destined in this world cup. Every time Croatia put the ball in Russia's box it's cleared one way or another.

    England should be favourites to reach the final from this side of the draw, Croatia have been hyped a bit because they beat what turned out to be a very ordinary Argentina, but while they play nice football, they don't have much threat up front.

    Russia have been good in most of their games, they do not dally around - they play very direct football and are always looking to get the ball in the net. And it seems to work well.

    Russians are very tough to break down. Sweden played very similarly but aren't as good agaisnt crosses as Russia are. Croatia have the skill to unlock a defence. So two different teams for England and it's hard to say which would be easier.

    A lot of tidy passing in this game but the final ball has been rubbish at the business end of the pitch. The keepers have had an easy night in reality.

    Also have made very few mistakes throughout the tournament. I hope they do win now. Russia V England semi final will be an ever bigger game, as the hosts come up against the 'enemy' nation.

    It would be an explosive and thrilling semi-final, hopefully no hoologanism though as both nations are sadly known for having ugly form in this area.

    Putin made it clear in a few comments warning the hooligans to stay away for the World Cup, which is why nothing has happened so far.

    If Russia beat England to reach the final, it will be huge for Russians and it wont matter if they lose the final. For England to lose to Russia would be seen by the right of the country has humiliation.

    This looks to be going to pens so Russia have a great chance.

    Wow. Equaliser for Russia. I don't like Russia as a country as we know they tend to be homophobic, racist etc but am enjoying their run and will be happy for them if they beat Croatia here. Although, when they play against England, no doubt I'll be rooting for the country I live in and that is England!

    Brilliant fight from Russia.

    Home crowd behind them after the late equaliser Russia will surely be confident winning the penalty shootout? One one man stopping them and he is a brilliant when it comes to penalties.

    I wouldn't waste my time watch Reggie, not a day goes by when he doesn't feel a victim. BBC has been on the anti-Russia propoganda vibe for years now.

    Those who have travelled from all over the world have nothing but good things to say about Russia. It's a great nation with great people, whatever the western imperialists try to project.

Sterling and Alli are the weaklinks in this england team - going by the WC so far - but their reputation means they will never be dropped. for all the ridicule he gets Welbeck is actually a decent performer for England and offers pretty much everything Sterling does while also being Bambi on ice in the final third. Alli isn't suited to that deeper role IMO and he is being outshone by Lingard so far, but i guess it pays to have as many goal scorers as possible on the pitch to make a difference. The lack of a proper midfield will show against Croatia even if they manage to beat them and will perhaps not be enough against Belgium or France.

    For all the great things that Southgate has done with this young England team (he is to me one of the best managers of 2018), I have to say he is not helping Ali & Sterling at all.

    Since they got the results so no complains, but he is using a bizarre 3-1-4-2 formation at start with Young apparently at middle though he is spending most times on wings, Ali at left wings and Sterling as one of pair forward.

    No credit taken away, but by the luck of draw England has got a path which apparently is easier despite finishing 2nd & their task was made even easier by Germany (Spain also - other wise it was Germany at QF & Spain in SF), but I don’t think with this formation England can beat tactically better organized teams.

    England’s traditional formation is 433 or 442 with lots of wing play; but this young squad was perfectly suited for more dynamic 4231 formation and that could have helped both Ali & Sterling.

    Maguire & Stones at CB (Maguire is playing as left back actually), Tripper (to me one of their best players) & Rose wing backs.

    Henderson & Young as the base of midfield, Kane as the spearhead with Ali behind and two wingers could have made England even better team. Ali & Kane are the best English pair at Spurs and Pochhetino plays them one behind another allowing Ali lot more freedom; and he is a £100mn+ fee, player now for sure for that role (Kane will be £170mn+, English players are obnoxiously expensive for home grown quota).

    Ideally, I would have liked to see an England team like this -

    1: Pickford
    4: Rose, Maguire, Stones, Tripper
    2: Henderson, Dier/Delph
    3: Sterling/Rashford, Ali/Cheek, Lingard/Young
    1: Kane/Vardy

    But Southgate has got the result and kept team happy - deserves 4 more years even if England loses out at SF.

    Welbeck is just not good enough for international soccer, even Heskey was more potent!!!!

    Good to see no Walker in your team, I feel he's been the weak link so far but hasn't really been tested other than the penalty he gave away.

Ali & Kane are the best English pair at Spurs and Pochhetino plays them one behind another allowing Ali lot more freedom; and he is a £100mn+ fee, player now for sure for that role (Kane will be £170mn+, English players are obnoxiously expensive for home grown quota).

    Ideally, I would have liked to see an England team like this -

    1: Pickford
    4: Rose, Maguire, Stones, Tripper
    2: Henderson, Dier/Delph
    3: Sterling/Rashford, Ali/Cheek, Lingard/Young
    1: Kane/Vardy

    But Southgate has got the result and kept team happy - deserves 4 more years even if England loses out at SF.

    Welbeck is just not good enough for international soccer, even Heskey was more potent!!!!

    I don't mind 3 at the back.

    We have plenty of full backs to choose from. 3 at the back allows them to bomb forward. Stones can distribute. 2 cbs alongside him need to be good 1 vs 1 and also have agility.

    Also since we don't have any ball playing cms, 3 at the back allows us to select midfielders who can run up and down which we have . With wing backs we can get crosses in for Kane and play drag backs to him.

    I don't mind 4 at the back . But I can see why he is playing 3 at the back.
