Spain are so boring and predictable.

They're also in a whole lot of trouble now. That third place qualification spot going to ruin a few proper surprises, but fair play if they manage to be one of only 8 teams knocked out at this stage...

it's not even remotely impossible. Poland beat Sweden. Slovakia get the draw.

Yeah Spain are in transition at the moment. Their performance was a lot like Englandís performance vs Scotland. Technically they were the better side and passed the ball around nicely without any proper penetration.

Iíve been disappointed with the quality of the football so far in the tournament. I guess itís hard to coach and train players to play a certain way when you donít manage the players on a weekly basis like at club football. However bang average teams can go deep in tournaments now a days - just look at Wales in euro 2016 and England in the World Cup. Get a favourable draw and have a good defence and you can go deep.

Not a new thing, Greece in 2004 springs to mind.

I guess the question is, would we take an England win playing like that, or would we prefer glorious failure playing attacking football.

The problem is we will play dull, negative football without the winning bit Sad

Take the win - Over time, everyone will forget how we played and remember the performances as swashbuckling, dazzling brilliance!
