France's odds came in as the semi-final played out - as if to say neither of these teams is looking good enough to beat them.

Tough day today. Think Sunday may be tougher.
I know we probably wouldn’t have won and I was expecting England to make the final. That’s all. Such a shame. Would of honestly been happy as runners up.

I'm not really a fan of the 3rd/4th match normally but think this one against Belgium could be important for two reasons
1) To prove we can beat them
2) To come home finishing with a win and on a high (3rd place may just feel better than the runner-up will on Sun)

Of course, that's assuming we beat them which I think we can and will - given a few days to get over tonight I think England will really be up for it
and 3rd Place will be a remarkable achievement for the youngest side in the tournament
Always hard to know how they'll treat what's basically a pointless game for fans but Kane's still in the running for the golden boot so I'm sure he'll be playing to at least score. Plus the fact they got a lot further than anyone predicted may spur them on to try and get 3rd place and that bronze medal for their trophy cabinet, can't be many footballers with a bronze WC medal and not as if olympians chuck their bronzes away.

Not sure we'll beat Belgium though, we had an easy run to the semi's and can't seem to score from open play, always dangerous from set pieces but they seem to waste any chances in play taking too long to line up a shot. I know we're the youngest team in the tournament but most are over 24 and have played at a decent level for a long time the simple fact is England just aren't as good a team as we'd love them to be. Can't see them getting a better chance of a place in a WC final in my lifetime now :(

Bet the Belgians are kicking themselves at beating us in the group stages though :)

England really need to put in a performance here to prove they just didn't have a lucky world cup.
