Ali scoring is the only thing he's done. I hope Southgate still takes him off.

Get Stirling off and Rashford or Vardy on there's space opening up and either of them can exploit that and kill this game off.

I've never seen an England team play like this. The way they keep attacking and are so organised makes me realise they could win this tournament which is new to me. To be honest I never thought they could play that well. But they effing can and lifting the trophy seems possible.

It's cos they're playing as a team- not a bunch of individuals

Oh dear. Is all my 1966 memorabilia about to become superfluous in 8 days' time?

MOTD are gushing, but I found that a bit dull. Sweden were poor.

Lots of fun watching the match in my neighbor's garage. Congrats!

I'm gonna miss all the pretty blonde girls in the stands, though.

Stirling was at 90% (before at 60%)
Apart from his finishing, which will come in the semi final, he was brilliant.
This team is coming to the boil and can beat anyone.

I disagree Stephen. At this level you might get 2/3 half chances in a game to score. Sterling had 5/6 and either outplayed himself or made the wrong choice. Overrated.

He was wasteful in front of goal

But he causes lots of problems for defences

He's a little pest

Happy to watch Russia walk off into the sunset. Hoping for an England - France final. That'd be fun...
