    That is very harsh, England did as expected against who they played, no more no less. They made the most of a favourable draw and some "bigger" teams going out early.

    Which teams at a similar level to England did better?

    Belgium. They belted us twice.

    Our Waterloo :(

    No, Belgium have two world class midfielders, we haven't.

    True.

    Good to see that your ability to always be wrong transcends sports.

    Have you been triple counting Belgium’s goals?

    You’re a knob. 2-0 is a belting, what sort of clueless knob are you?

    Your ability to write English suggests a reasonable level of intelligence so you either deliberately write the opposite of what is correct or you have a mental illness.

    Either way it is something of a relief to be considered a clueless knob.

    Find me one other person in the world who considers 1-0 to be a belting

    I would say that the first game counts. The Belgian manager said the first objective was to not win the the game for the easier draw. They couldn't manage to lose while trying.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Do you mind not splitting your infinitives like that? Please. It lets us down in front of our Russian friend.

    If he really wanted to lose he'd have started Mignolet

    Split infinitives have been around since at least the 13th century. Daniel Defoe, Benjamin Franklin, William Wordsworth, Abraham Lincoln, George Eliot, Henry James, and Willa Cather are among the writers who used them. Keep on splitting, I say.
