Notes

*Happy days yes…but…er ….why only 8 mins for Rashford.. Lord Gareth of Southgate? Aside from coming on to take a penalty of course.

So when exactly will Marcus and Loftus Cheek get a proper chance? They would have scared the life out of Colombia. Oh “impact subs” you say.? How about an impact start, middle and finish! Go on..why not.

Meanwhile Raheem (bles|) is now on 1000 mins without a goa, after banging them in weekly for fun for City …l but the love affair goes on. . I like the bloke but enough already. We looked poor upfront indeed.

PS My son’s Labradoodle Mabel would have been well proud of the hole the Colombians dug in the penalty spot, while a calm Harry Kane stayed in his own zone .
