Does 2nd place give an easier route in the competition  ?

Nope, be playing away from Wembley, imagine the uproar if we played to finish 2nd and then lost in the next round. Should always play to win and build confidence

Even if we were to come 2nd, we would still have to play one of France, Portugal or Germany in the quarter finals should they win their last 16 match.  We should not be thinking like a lesser nation does and should be going all out for a win, high tempo like the Italians and Dutch have and winning the game comfortable.  Let other teams worry about playing us.

Like when Hughes put out a reserve team against Man Utd (I think) in anticipation of his best 11 beating Newcastle the following week?

Similar to Croatia game, decent enough initial opening but second half yet again so boring, awful subs, same like for like and Sancho given 5 mins.  As soon as we come up against Germany or France in the last 16, we will be found wanting but Gareth will still be secure of his job.  He has wasted what is a talented squad of players.

Well folks I chose to watch Scotland, good entertaining game and a Modric masterclass. Fair play they never gave up 
Good old plucky Scotland never mind they did well in their 0-0 win against England

Boring England, marginally better than the Scotland game in the first half and then just as bad in the 2nd. 2 holding midfielders again, Kane isolated and hardly used our wing backs. Problem I see is if we go a goal down to a half decent team is that we will really struggle to break any team down who get players behind the ball. Thought Sacho had a good game, MOM for me.

Scotland Population 5.4 Million, England Population 56 Million, surely a disgrace that England did not thump them by 10 goals.

Looking forward to the India v China final in the next World Cup.
