England's route to the semis could not have been easier - the first real test comes tomorrow - Croatia stand between Southgate's heroes and a place against the French.
Rumours abound that he will go with the same team again, notwithstanding the performances of some of those he worships as being - 'most important members of the team' there is a case for giving fresh legs a go, especially as the Croatians will be that bit more tired after the last couple of epics.
I don't believe the same again team can beat Croatia - there is simply not enough goal threat up front - Kane will be man marked out of the game, they did it to Messi easily enough! Croatia will know how we play by now, Southgate needs to up the ante and offer something different - Rose on the left would be a good start, and Rashford alongside Kane.
I fear same old same old won't cut it,,,,,,,,,,
