Dude needed a card or two at the end. Iran with some sketchy challenges on players who are just standing.

Iran look horrible defending set pieces. Likely our best chance of getting a goal or two.
May need Acosta to play in that one much to many people chagrin.

Will be interesting to see how long Southgate plays some of his stars with the short turnaround to Friday.

You know Kane wants to play 90 to score every goal he can

They were first or second in Asian qualifying and beat South Korea so they are a decent team. England is good

Harry Fn Macguire not only not looking terrible, but looking quite good.

Jude Bellingham is for real.

Assuming 3 teams lose to England and 3 teams beat Iran, that USA vs Wales match and probably goal differential for USA and Wales could be hugely important.

Need to make sure that McKennie is healthy for that one too.

But Gio is just as good with set pieces.

Wales will play England tough and may be able to get a point off them.

We've got a bunch of dudes that can provide good service and a bunch of dudes that are capable of finishing when provided good service on set pieces.. just need to execute like England just did in that first half.

I hope Wales and USA play England tougher than Iran just did in that half.

I thought FS1/Fox would be a USA feed and Peacock would be a British feed, but Peacock appears to just be en espanol.

England just looks absolutely clinical in building out/ breaking lines and killing counters. ...I hope it's because Iran is bad and defeated. I fear it's because England is that good.

It's a combo of both.

And we have to remember that Iran hates us. They'll hate ball us.

Don't call it a comeback!

A back line with Shaw, Stones and Macquarie will give up goals and will also turn the ball over under pressure. But their midfield/forwards are probably top 3 as a group.

Madrid already has a young nucleus of Tchouameni, Camavinga & Valverde. Maybe they go for him but it seems to me that the money would be better spent elsewhere.

Barca also has a stacked young MF but they also dont have any money.

City is possible. Think Arsenal is an option as well. They have a need, have shown a willingness to play youth and are currently in 1st place in the league. Doesnt hurt that Bellingham has supposedly become very chummy with both Saka & Ben White in the last year or so.

At some point City is going to have the trio of Haaland, Bellingham and Gio back togother again.

Just wait.

trying to follow that explanation of "concussion substitutions"... a squad can get a sixth substitution if they feign a head injury?

No. They'll stop play for 30 minutes to get an MRI to confirm.
