Sunday June 23rd Results

Group G: England 6-1 Panama





A rather overtly physical Panamanian side were dispensed with before the first half had ended. Harry Kane scored a hat trick, John Stones scored a couple of headed goals, Jesse Lingard got the best goal of the game. Even Panama were allowed to join in the party with their first goal ever in a World Cup finals as England got sloppy in the second half defending their six-goal advantage.




Group H : Japan 2-2 Senegal





Senegal look to be Africa's best hope of going further in this competition. But they should really have capitalized on their lead from Sadio Mane. Instead they let Japan back into the game twice. However the draw puts both teams in a better position that either Poland or Colombia to make it through to the knockout rounds.



Group H : Colombia 3-0 Poland





Poland have the ignominy of being the first European team to be knocked out of the tournament with no points on the board after another defeat. Colombia blunted the Poles with strikes from Yerry Mina, Radamel Falcao and a cool finish by Juan Cuadrado. It leaves them needing to beat Senegal to be sure of making it into the next round.




---------------

Summary

England's win also secures qualification to the last 16 for neighbours Belgium. Much tougher tests lie ahead. But England can now remain calm before facing their first Hazard in Russia! (If Eden's selected of course).

Group H will go to the wire. With Senegal needing a point or better against Colombia. Japan can advance by beating or drawing with Poland.


---------------



Tomorrow there are four more fixtures featuring the final group games.

Group A

Saudi Arabia v Egypt
Uruguary v Russia


Group V

Iran v Portugal
Spain v Morrocco

I don't think anyone is getting carried away. But Gareth Southgate is proving, perhaps, that the decision to promote him from the U-21s gave him a totally different insight. He's brought in younger players. Eased out the cumbersome Rooney and Joe Hart. Now he's stamping his own mark. He even seems to have worked on set piece play.

The feelgood moment could end at any moment of course if we get knocked out with a dismal performamce. But at least the future looks a little brighter now no matter what. There is another generation waiting in the wings who have already won a World Cup and Euro at junior levels as well. If only they get a chance to play at the top level!
