It had to be played some time, they made the best choice. Your wording in other posts suggests outside pressure which has shown not to be the case.

Denmark's Euro 2020 match against Finland should not have restarted after midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsed mid-game, coach Kasper Hjulmand says.

"No, we should not have played," Hjulmand said on Sunday.  “Players have different reactions to shocks and trauma but we'll try to get back to normal as much as possible. I get the feelings from the players that maybe the time is too short to try to play football again, but maybe we can use it as a force to get together and try to go out and do our best in the next match."

I think that should be taken as a given though. Obviously the coaches and management are technically more 'qualified' than fans, but it doesn't mean fans can't have an opinion otherwise what's the point. There will be many times when coaches and managers get things wrong and fans should be able to debate and discuss anything they want about the sport. They pay enough money via tickets, merchandise or tv subscriptions to be able to have an opinion. 

Exactly right.....

Can someone please give explain why two goal keepers were named on the bench rather than one of the two really good players that were left out? 

Secondly, today was decent but I feel some are hyping it more than it was ( especially the BBC) . It was a start, nothing more. Improvement definitely needed, although we never really looked like conceding.

UEFA stipulate 2 keepers must be named on the bench I think

I thought we played really well against a very good side.

There’s definitely a bit of snobbery about it ‘only’ being Croatia and not Germany or whoever - even if subconscious - but that lot are a strong team.

It was just very controlled from us and in that sort of heat too. And we had really good possession against a team that passed us off the park three years ago.

The middle three - Rice, Phillips and Mount - was the key but for me and it’ll be interesting to see how that develops as the games go on. I don’t see Phillips getting that much freedom to bomb forward again, it was a superb tactical move to play him in the role he did.

Can’t really have too many complaints.

Absolutely.  Opinion is fine, it’s the over-reaction, the instant “he’s not got a clue”, “we’ve lost this” that gets me.  Often before the reason for certain selections are explained.

Correct, and even if you don’t name a 2nd keeper on the bench you must stipulate an outfield player to that position I read somewhere.

How the hell did they manage that.. surely barriers are to a spec to stop such an occurrence

Well you can make things as safe as you can, but you can't legislate for some people who want to join the Darwin awards hall of fame.  You have to assume its is someone being a dick, if not Wembley surely will lose its safety certificate!

 

I will get my apologies in early if it was not someone being a dick.

The Dutch are relentless, one of these has to go in in a minute surely?

0-0 at half time. The Dutch certainly look the much more likely and should be ahead, but Ukraine break fast and it would not be a shock if they score. Most ‘fun’ 45 minutes to watch so far of these Euros for me.

Without doubt, great for a 0-0, defences for both sides look very poor.  Great neutral match

Exactly what I was saying surely around the edge but not just barriers, Part of the health and safety test when the stadium was past fit for fans to use after it was built.🤔

Solid start by England. You want to gain momentum as tournament goes on so lots of room for improvement which is fine. Phillips very good. Croatia obviously not what they were but they created nothing and England were comfortable.

From personal point of view I had my group tickets taken off me so I’m finding it hard to get too excited but hopefully when knockout stuff comes I’ll feel better about it.
