Spain have been a cut above but we have grown into the tournament.

Thoughts ?

When Leeds trainer Les Cocker was once told Norman Hunter had broken a leg, he asked: “Whose is it?”

Irresistible force v immovable object.

Spain to win narrowly.

If Greece can win it 20 years ago with a great manager, anything is possible! Never give up hope.

We can beat any team but also lose to any team .

It's all on the night.

It's like ta!king about town , it's hard to watch most games but would not miss it for the world.

Denmark were on their holidays.

Spain massively talented.  Their frequent  pressing might tire them.  Can a 16/17/year old keep scoring?  

We have character, resilience and luck.  Qualities that can make a massive difference when it comes down to the crunch.  Late goals and winning from being down.

I can't see it being anything but a backs to the wall performance from us. We've not had any threat from set pieces this tournament which is a pity, but perhaps we'll be able to do something in that regard on Sunday?

I still think it is remarkable that nobody has scored direct from a free-kick this tournament.

Southgate ball vs actual football.

Spain batter us 1st half and grab two or three and then get to coast through 2nd half hitting us on the counter maybe grabbing another. Southgates reactionary subs coming on too late this time. Hold on I've seen this match before...

I don't mind Roy Keane making £60,000 a week. I was making the same when I was playing. The only difference was I was printing my own - Mickey Thomas

The area you are trying to protect at corners is the goal - Chris Kamara

England win on penalties.

We do have a good squad and actually credit to Gareth as he’s using the subs to make an impact Tony, Palmer, Watkins, Trent from the spot have all added value from the bench., this could be a factor.
