The event for third place on Saturday in Saint-Petersburg is, on the one hand, a reunion, because already in the group Belgium and England meeting. There, the Belgians narrowly prevailed 0:1. At the same time, this encounter after the recent experience is without question a duel of the disappointed.
The golden generation of the red devils definitely has the potential to become world champion. But against the French - Eden Hazard and company acted altogether too restrained. Speed, courage and fluid, fast combinations in the game forward were missing, too big was the fear of the equally fast-paced attackers of Les Bleus. The lack of risk-taking was the dream of the final burst.
The Three Lions were in the duel with the Croats especially miss the callousness before the goal of the opponent. The opponent finally exploited this weakness ice cold. The still very young English Elf worked, ran kilometre after kilometre for their dream - in the end, but lacked the revolt. Also, goalscorer Harry Kane, who could set any accents, revealed that he still lacks a bit of maturity for the big litter at the age of 24 years.
