This looks like a great group of players.

4-0 first match against Chile. Completely dominate.

Are Sky or BT Sport or Eurosport or anyone covering the games ?

Might be good to see, if Danny Loader gets a game....

Another win for England and they've qualified for the last 16.

3-0 against Mexico but had to cling on at the end to win 3-2.

Danny Loader scored twice in a 4-0 win over Iraq, England played 3, won 3.

But luckily England's coaching methods will soon knock all that inconsistency out of them

England will be without Jadan Sancho for this afternoons game as Dortmund have called him back to Germany (I think there was some agreement that they could call him back after the group games) instead of letting him play in the rest of the tournament.

Seems a bit naughty of them if you ask me...I know you didn't.

BBC are showing the semi vs Brazil via the red button apparently.

England 3-1 up, Brewster hat-trick, that's 2 hat-tricks in two games.

Check the above interview out in the report. England players gatecrash it at the end and a certain no. 16 gets in frame at 0.57...

All that talent and promise and yet by the time they’re 21/22, and being hailed as the next golden generation, the PL and the coaching system in England has largely somehow destroyed it.
