    Not seen the game (damn geoblocking) but the stats seems to suggest it was all England...

    England - 10, 8 on target, no goals
    China - 4, 3 on target, 3 goals

    PCs

    England - 7, no goals
    China - 4, 1 goal

    Circle Penetrations

    England - 25

    What's going on?

    England seem to manage to under perform at world cups no matter what the sport is!

    Created very few clear chances and PC's were shocking. Don't know why anybody is surprised given USA thumped them (GB/ENG?) in January in San Diego and split a few games with them last year while China also did them in London 2012. Not a very good team but it might all click and they come good against the better teams in the group.

    watched it live - the game was appalling - England were completely lacking in ideas , slow and lethargic

    Useless, absolutely useless. We should run a sweep on the 10 top excuses they will wheel out to cover their asses.

    women clearly need to tap into the N.I. players a-la the men.
