England earned their spot in the easier side of the bracket by dismissing Panama and Tunisia, then rotating heavily against Belgium and losing 1-0. How good are they really? Who knows, but the Three Lions are fun to watch again, and there’s a certain hope surrounding the camp. Come home, football.

Jordan Pickford has endured some unfounded and ludicrous ridicule from various pundits who spend more time fruitlessly trying to master breathing technique (talkin’ about mouthbreathers, folks) than properly analyze goalkeepers. With that in mind, it would be swell if Pickford came up with a huge save or two today, but not totally necessary. Sorry that he gave up a perfectly placed penalty and let in a goal to Adnan Januzaj that no goalkeeper is stopping, I guess?
England: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire; Trippier, Henderson, Lingard, Dele Alli, Young; Sterling, Kane
