Momentum is everything. We have lost ours now. Colombia will beat us and all the good work over the first two games will go to waste. It's all over.

He does. Just whacked a fiver on him to score the next goal at 16/1.

Pickford hardly fills you confidence does he?

I'd like to see whether he could have done better with that shot.

Much happier with this route than playing Brazil.

By saving everything that came his way? Nothing he could do with the goal.

it was nowhere near in the corner. well struck but I would expect a top international keeper to keep it out.

Columbia are definitely beatable and the team will look very different Tuesday.

Jeez, quote me an England keeper that never let a goal in

Just seen the goal again, it dipped just under the bar, not much he could have done.

Colombia didn't look that great today, we can beat them with the first team. Very dangerous front 3 but other than that, no great shakes

Definitely. Still a lot harder than Japan but the rewards are much greater.

Wouldn’t surprise me if Brazil (assuming they beat Mexico) knock out Belgium.

Like France they still have so many more gears to get through. Worryingly good players. Imho.

Hmmmmm Pickford seemed a little too close to his near post for the goal.
