Absolutely!

This is far from the best Germany side of recent times.

It is Germany though!  

If we can get stuck in like the Czech team did today.... attitude is everything, forget history!

Neuer is an old dear now, Kroos is totally isolated with nobody to pass to.

VAR to rule out any refereeing travesties Lampard-style.

Let's av it.

What a day of football. France remind me of PSG, just a bunch of individuals rather than a team. Mbappe was pretty awful this tournament considering he’s meant to be just behind Ronaldo and messi. Credit to Switzerland and xhaka who unleashed his inner pirlo!!

Nearly 20 years since we played Germany in a competitive game, a 5-1 away win in a World Cup Qualifier, with  Germany reaching the final.  What can we expect a penalty shoot-out with Kane the villain?  Surely not for todays players, in the past when people had funny hair cuts, or has Southgate made them cautious? With the likes of Portugal and France going out, what do we have to fear?

Only in England could attacking flair players like Foden and Grealish be sub at the expense of 5 at the back and 2 defensive midfielder.

Absolutely awful negative team selection, for god sake we are at home man. 

After all the free flowing games I expect a total bore 

Probably look a right fool but that's football, a simply awful team to win a knockout game

Really hope Gareth gets it right but wow 7 defensive minded players in the team, no Mount, Foden, Grealish or Sancho, no other European team would leave that kind of calibre of players on the bench.  I can't believe that with 5 at the back, we feel the need to play Rice and Phillips, surely Bellingham could have come in or Foden in the middle.

Almost as though we think it's a two legged affair. I'm bemused .

Predicted it months ago.

That's Southgate for you - negative and over-cautious beyond belief, despite having attacking talent that could destroy most opponents.

And The FA are already talking of keeping him for 3 more years!
