They came 4th in their qualification group then beat New Zealand 1 0 in an inter federation play off game

Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the first player to score in 5 World cups an incredible achievement
Love him or loathe him, you have to admire him. He has exceptional dedication and fitness to add to an exceptional talent. Yes, he’s a prima donna, but that’s partly because of his incredible self-belief.

He’s out of contract. Do you think we could get him on a six- month deal? ;)

Wales lose 2 0 to Iran both goals in stoppage time, Iran were much improved than the first game but Wales look pretty poor and will probably go out at group stage

Poor from England against a well-organised USA side. Only Grealish of the subs made any impact and that fairly minimal. Why Foden didn’t get any match-time was a puzzle.

A poor performance and a nothing game really. I thought the substitutions did make sense tactically and I would have opted for Grealish rather than Foden from the bench. He did help to get us up the pitch and won free kicks in the opposition half, whereas Foden might have been bogged down in a game like that.

I am pretty sure we will beat a poor Welsh side and top the group.

After the Iran game I was pleased to hear Southgate say we’re not effective when we play at a slow tempo. The penny dropped at last. Then we get tonight’s performance..

On the other hand, even with an insipid draw we’re as good as through to the last 16 anyway. And nobody wins the World Cup playing well in every game!

I too reckon we’ll make it all academic by beating Wales, even if Bale finally does deliver his best in this tournament.

Too many cautious teams in this tournament, made for another boring 0-0. Then again, we aren't going to win every game 6-2. We are still in a good position and I can't see Wales causing too much trouble.

An interesting game tonight.

England struggled with the athleticism of the USA but Wales looked unfit and immobile in their previous games and are perhaps the kind of opposition England enjoy playing.

We will hopefully win and top the group, both for the easier tie in the next round and because our game at Northampton would then kick off at 3pm as planned.

I really hope they step it up today. Didn't really want it coming down to the last game but we should beat a poor Wales side and give us some confidence going into the last sixteen.
