Saw on twitter that Ronaldo threw his armband and walked off before the final whistle. Went and watched the game skipping to key points.
First Serb goal was offside IMO in the build up. But was first half so thought that can't be what had CR7 irate.

His disallowed winner at the end. Lordy that lino had a mare.


Copped a yellow.. For scoring a goal lol.

Kalvin Phillips is offering nothing to the England team at the moment. Southgate really needs to stop playing 2 DMs
It took Southgate 45 minutes to realise Declan Rice could do the job on his own - so Phillips was pushed forward, but still kept passing it backwards. It took Southgate another 25 minutes to realise there are other players who are better than Phillips in an advanced midfield role.

Southgate clearly experimenting with 2 DMs for when they play the best teams in Euros. Not a fan, either play one DM in front of the back four and a more attacking option as other mid. A bit hard asking Phillips of more advanced role when he hasn’t played that role all season for his club

It can work if you have the right players (and a coach who knows what he's doing). When Hammers are defending Rice and Soucek both sit deep, when they go forward Rice usually sits and Soucek pushes on. I reckon Rice plus Henderson would work like that. If Henderson isn't fit I'd like to see Bellingham given a go at that role.

Just read that Lewandowski is out of the England v Poland game. It's a big out but Poland will still be dangerous.

Lol at Sergej Milinković-Savić getting fouled and starting to roll around and scream in pain but as soon as the Azerbaijan player went to help him up, SMS was fine - mid scream. Sometimes all a player needs is to be helped to his feet. 😂

Score elsewhere at half time. Croatia vs Marla 0-0. Netherlands were campaigners in the 42nd minute by getting their opener against Gibraltar. And just now... Jota scored on the stroke of half time. :(

Belgium are giving Belarus a smacking. Even duds like Batshuayi, Trossard and Praet are getting goals.

Czechs down to 10 men after Connor Roberts put in a late bid for an Oscar.

Was a second yellow. Harsh but normally leading with the elbow and hitting the face is a yellow
Looked to be on the shoulder and Soucek made a big deal of it. Good goal by Wales but both teams looked poor.

Belgium reserves put 8 past Belarus. Even Benteke got a goal!
