Recommended Posts

At least the likes of Butland, Welbeck and Jones will get a game.

Hope we play a third team, fucking pointless match. This isn't the Olympics, just a money spinner.

Fifa shold get rid of it.

Brazil vs Holland in 2014 was the most depressing football match I´ve ever watched.

Just basically play everyone that hasn’t had a game. Throw the third keeper up front.

I'd pay to see that.

Legitimately don't give a fuck about this game. Play the fucking kids for all I care, or just fly home now and start your holidays early lads. Take a fucking forfeit and a fine from FIFA because we won't play in their glorified friendly, whatever. No real fucking loss. No point in players risking injury for a pointless match.

It's a bit fucking weird we're playing them twice in this World Cup and they're both 2 of the most pointless matches of the tournament.

It would be hilarious if both managers planned to make a mockery of this game by switching every player out of their positions. Play both keepers up front and Harry Kane on the goal... They'd surely put an end to this game for future World Cups.

Hopefully Kane picks up an injury to rule the horrible cunt out of the first game of the season. Dele Alli, too.

I rather enjoyed it .   All speak of the 7:1 but no one talks about the 3:0 loss to the Netherlands. I thought Brazil would come out flying to prove the previous game a true outlier

Who gives a shit, bring them home :coffee:

Would be the first football medal the England national team won in over 50 years.  

Belgium finished runner up in the euro 80 tournament

It's absolutely typical that it's these of all teams we run into here. Two dead rubbers against the same team for fuck sakes.

I would bin the third placed play-off as frankly no-one fancies playing it, but I feel I owe it to them to watch it.

It's not a real medal, it's more a wooden spoon!

Rather go out of the competition with 2 losses in a row? Or on a more of a high with a win and collecting a spoon for the trophy case

At least in this England vs Belgium game they won’t both be intentionally trying to lose....

Why do you guys not care? I get that you rue the missed opportunity to be in the final, but in an Olympic context this would be the bronze medal playoff. Maybe FIFA should develop a silver and a bronze cup so there is ore of the spoils to be shared, and something to be played for in the playoff for third....?

Which is more pointless of a match:

A) A match in which neither side cares who wins, or

B) A match in which both teams would actively prefer to lose

Nah FIFA should just let them go home. This isn’t the olympics.

One of England's best performers, Danny Welbeck, to hopefully get a game and expose Southgate's foolishness in playing players that pundits wank over.
