Did England play well against Croatia

I COULD see a team forming, I sensed what they were trying to do, players looked comfortable. I was certainly encouraged to believe that we will progress from this.

I felt especially comfortable with the defensive set-up. It's never easy to implant a new system on players and expect them to cope as well as Gary Neville, Mark Wright and Stuart Pearce did. If the back isn't right, the team isn't right but there was never a sense that the three defenders were troubled. Not, I have to say, that Croatia were particularly adventurous after the first 20 minutes.

You could see the confidence start to spread once everyone felt assured of their positions and responsibilities.
