    @independent_ all the England fans are going on about how boring the game was lol. Was very entertaining and solid game. Plenty of chances both ways and lots of good solid plays. Just because a game is scoreless doesn't make it boring.

    And your point is? England couldn't even beat Scotland who have a much lesser population lmao.

    If you (a collective you meaning England fans) expect England to win euros then you'd better be beating Scotland comfortably.

    Quite sad result for England tbh, Scotland outclassed them tonight simple as.

    We'll see what happens. Scotland lost to CR due to two mistakes. Not sure if you actually watched their game but they played pretty well minus the mistakes that cost them.

    Taking England to a draw tonight and unlucky not to win.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Scotland could pull off a Croatia win.

    And even if they lose, they've played with pride and not left anything off the pitch. Can't fault their efforts. Proud of them win or lose.

    A draw is better than a loss. They did pretty well. England aren’t well known for doing well in big games like this (think world cup). Even my neighbour (the biggest England fan out there) thought Scotland played very well.

    The worst game of football I have ever seen. Team played like the manager - boring, negative and clueless. Luke Shaw 5 stone overweight, Yorkshire Pirlo played like the Yorkshire Ripper, Harry Kane 10 yards off the pace would be lucky to get a transfer to QPR and Boiled Rice was just pathetic. Loads of options on the bench though like an injured Henderson who is Championship level even when fully fit and an injured and talentless Harry Maguire. An absolute shambles. Fuming.

    And that is why I don't like football. I don't like playing it (I am absolutely awful at football anyway even when I do try!) I don't like watching it. I don't support any teams. I only know about all this stuff due to people at school talking about it!

    Yesterday at school it was quite crazy. I was in my Photography lesson after coming back to class after my extra time that I had (I had a Photography exam on Thursday but I had my extra time the next day during most of my Photography lesson but I went back to class afterwards.) It was year 7 break time (we have staggered break times due to covid and not being able to mix year group bubbles) and the whole of year 7 decided to sing/scream the lyrics to 3 Lions (Football's Coming Home.) It was really annoying. Not because of the song but because they were all out of tune so it didn't exactly sound amazing. I couldn't focus on my work during the remainder of the lesson.

    Watched the game yesterday, disappointed to not get the win. England just looked really slow - only Foden (and Grealish when he came on!) was making runs, most of the time everyone was just standing around. Definitely something to work on when we face the Czechs. Got a point so could be worse, but definitely need to create and take more chances, especially with Kane not looking sharp so far.

    It really annoys me that people can't praise or accept that Scotland played well! It's always about England playing poor or slowly.

    The commentators were so pro English it was unbelievable.

    I've not seen on England fan saying that it was an exciting game that kept them on the edge of their seat. England had many chances - Scotland either defended well or saved it. Same as Scotland had many chances and England defended well.

    It's not hard to give out some praises lol

    Scotland did play well. Always going to be a difficult match given the history and rivalry. Fact remains England should be beating them rather easily and they didn’t. England were generally poor.

    As for pro English commentators. Does that include Ally Mccoist?

    Yes it does include Ally McCoist lol he was trying to be somewhat neutral at times and gave England praise when they did well. He was excited though when Scotland did well I'll give you that. The rest of them were all very pro English and not really even giving Scotland praise.

    Tbf they haven't played in a major tournament against each other for an extremely long time. Saying that England should win could be debated because they haven't played each other with this squad, everything comes down to how each team plays on the day. Fact is Scotland played better than expected which slowed England down. Sure the English players *should* have scored, but should Che Adams not have scored? He plays in the premier League, albeit Southampton. He's a goal scorer and missed many chances that he worked hard for.

    Who knows what could happen when pride comes into play. When I played abroad with my ice hockey I found we did better against the teams we were expected to lose to and lost to teams we should've been beating. It could easily be a mental thing - Scotland were the underdogs and England were expected and expecting to win.

    I was born in England and support an English team, I don't have a Scottish team. I was raised in Scotland and my mum supports England. So I tried to be neutral but nah didn't happen :lol

    Someone on my Facebook really did ask everyone why Scotland was playing with England when Scotland is in England
    “ i think that deep down you still think life is worth living. It’s no where near over for you. You’re in pain. The thing you lost, Is the same thing that can stop that pain”

    I saw no evidence of an pro Engish bias in the coverage. If anything it was the opther way round.
    Ally Mccost repeatedly reffered to Scotland as 'us' and 'our'. He even said "after listening to my old boss Souness, I am just about ready to march on Carlisle"
    The pundits in the studio included Graame Souness and Scoot Brown. They also threw objectively well out the window, as I 'd expect them to to be honest.


    Scotland are 44th in Fifa worl rankins, with Jamaica and Romania either side of them. England are 4th in the world rankings. While Scotland played extremely well, England should be beating them. Scotland will be much happier with the draw than England will have been.

    The best home nations performances so far have come from Wales.
