Sad.

We will not beat a 'good' nation in a competitive game under Southgate.

It’s really not that difficult to understand:

Group of 3, play each other home and away.
- Winner goes to the semi final. Win that and the final, you win the tournament and qualify for the Euros.
- Finish 2nd stay the same.
- Finish bottom you get relegated

Simple.

I tried watching some of it in the U.S.. Finally gave up after Rashford passed the ball to the Croatian keeper twice in two minutes.

I think people obviously get involved when the World Cup finals are on and to a slightly lesser degree the European Championships because the whole nation gets carried on a media wave. Other than that I'd argue that most people are just not interested in international football these days.

Played well. Barkley and winks added abit more dynamism to our game. Prefer the 433 as it allows us to play both rashford and sterling.

Shame we didn't get that goal in Croatia we would be joint top. Need Croatia to not lose at home v Spain and we have a chance
O Albion we love you

And there was me posting extended highlights in the Woodman because I forgot they were going to be on ITV  ;D . We were clinical, but from the minutes I saw we certainly rode our luck. Would have liked to watch the game 'live' but I don't/won't have Sky and couldn't be doing with spending the evening down the local three out of four nights  :-X .

Watching the under 21s on BBC website at the moment (i think itis BBC Alba English language coverage).

Reiss Nelson, on loan at Hoffenheim from Arsenal has bent a free kick in from 30 yards.

Frightening amount of talent throughout the English youth teams at the moment. We actually seem to be developing a number of different p)ayers now, not just fast, pacey ones.

Just need better, deep lying ones now.

Rooney is coming out of retirement to play in England v USA. Good to see that the domestic calendar is getting put on hold for a testimonial game. Takes the "meaningless friendly" label to a whole new level.

Just watched a short video of Sherwood and Saunders debating about the 'Rooney' game.

What are peoples thoughts on the England v USA game this week and Rooney getting another cap as a 'farewell.'

I understand the money raised is going to charity and its to raise the profile in USA further etc etc, but what are your thoughts on him getting another cap.

It hasn't been earnt on merit/form. Could it potentially take away the chance for Callum Wilson to get some international minutes...

I find it bizarre to be honest and a little embarrassing. I get that he has achieved a lot for England in terms of caps and goals but this seems strange to me.

Pretty sure none of the gate receipts are going towards his charity. This shouldn't be an internationally recognised fixture, it's embarrassing.

That's correct, I believe gate receipts etc are going to a charity of FA choice, Rooney will be able to collect for his charity outside of the turnstiles etc or something along those lines.

Which makes the whole thing even more bizarre in my opinion.

So fans have paid a fair whack to get there and get tickets for what is now effectively a testimonial, only to be greeted with charity buckets outside the ground.

Not fantastically bothered about him getting another cap to be honest. This is a meaningless game where the gate receipts are going to charity. If Rooney plays then it will get many extra bums on seats and increase the charity contribution.

We probably need to remember the contribution Wayne has made to English football, both for club and country - a fantastic player in his day and still a force to be reckoned with. A quick check on Wiki tells you that he played for England 119 times and scored 53 goals, which is a phenominal return at that level.
