    Yeah, I'm sure it unfolded in a weird awkward way where they don't really want to play, but you're not exactly going to say no to the guy are you?

    It's a double whammy. Without Eriksen they lose some creativity and goals and they genuinely looked shellshocked throughout that second half. Who's going to inspire them to victory? Martin Braithwaite?

    The coverage of Erikson was awful. The commentator at the time didn't help. The cameras kept on showing him receive CPR and that lady who came pitchside crying. Probably his wife. They showed it all.

    Eriksen at that point probably not the best judge of whether or not they should play on.

    The best scumbag takes on this are the facebook betting pages posting saccharine reflections on how everyone on the pitch was a hero for reacting, whilst advertising their bet boosts for the England match

    Am I just doing a bad job of looking or is there no daily roundup show for this, like a daily Match of the Day for the three games played each day?

    On the Daily Euros podcast, there was a one minute message about Eriksen instead of a full episode - so I assume they cancelled MOTD for that reason too.

    Tonight’s is at 11:15pm on BBC.

    Tomorrow, ITV have highlights at 10:45pm.

    Looking at Copa America which is starting tonight. Two groups of five, with the top four teams from each group going through to the next round.

    Are the likes of Mostovoi and Cancelo getting COVID after being double-jabbed?

    And Eriksen having only received a jab the day before is bullshit, right? They surely would have had better planning than risk that.

    I don't get Kieran Trippier at all. If United throw a sizeable part of their transfer budget at him I'm following another sport.

    A squad of 26 players and we’re playing a right back at left back? Will we ever learn.

    Why would you take Chilwell and Shaw to a tournament if you wre then going to select Kieran Trippier at left back? Sometimes managers really overthink things.

    It's like we've gone back to the days of having no left footed players... except we do.

    Chilwell and Shaw have "knocks" allegedly. It's a real shame Bukayo Saka is a fictional character.

    That Croatia defence look solid enough behind that quality midfield. The front 3 aren't up to much but should still have enough against this shambles.

    7.50 for a Croatia win does seem fairly tasty as far as odds go.

    What's Kane doing standing around on the corner of the box behind Mount when he's looking to cross? Get in there mate, he's not landing it on Sterling's head is he?

    Agree Phillips looks class.

    This generation of England players don't seem to have that fear in international games that the last couple did.

    There's a deserve arrogance about the team. It's not above their station just genuine belief. Nice to see. There's no real weak links.

    Whatever you say about his tactics, I've enjoyed the look of his team selections. During Sven and Capello, it seemed like the team was set in stone. We've got a variety of talent coming through these days.
