I thought Hampden was allowed 25% capacity (12,000) tickets for this game. Doesn’t look like anywhere near that in the stadium :(

Croatia only scored their goal because no Czech player stopped them taking a quick freekick. Being able to block quickly taken freekicks without punishment is one of the biggest problems in football today. The rewarded team if they try and take a freekick through a “blocker” can even be booked on occasion.
Players blocking freekicks should be automatically given a yellow card, maybe fouling wouldn’t be an easy cynical way to stop attacks that they currently are.
Soapbox over.

Thank God ITV have Keane and Souness as pundits tonight. A couple of grown-ups that tell it straight and are actually worth listening to…

Being played like derby, loads of aggression from the Scots.
Great atmosphere!

England are allowing themselves to be dragged down to a league 1 type of game.
Need to get on the ball a bit.

Is Kane playing? What about Sterling? Both have done f*** all so far.

I know you can’t speak ill of Harry Kane, but he has completely gone hasn’t he?
The legs, the sharpness. It’s all gone.

A draw's fine for us.
They need a win.
Catch them on the break second half.

Interesting game for us neutrals. England poor but if they score first it will be over although Scotland have done better than I thought. Expect to see Grealish on the hour who could provide the flair England are lacking.

stones should have scored from that corner but we look pretty gash. Scotland working their arses off though, should tire in the second half

Poor from England, not threatening the Scots whatsoever. Hoping for a much better second half.
Sterling absolutely poor! Don't get me started on Luke Shaw...💩

Phillips receives the ball with his back to goal and just plays it to where it came from. If he could be on the half-turn on receipt he has options

I don't understand the point of Declan Rice in a game like this. Move Phillips deep and bring on Bellingham or Grealish.

Crap performance. Any decent international team watching that will be pissing themselves.
....I'm an supporter of an indecent international team....and I concur.

Scotland have been very very aggressive, Glimour has been excellent.
Grealish on please!
