Steve McManaman explains the importance of England's win over Tunisia, and the FC crew rate Harry Kane's performance in his World Cup debut.
Mark Ogden feels the lack of transport available around Russia could be the reason for so few England fans making the trip to Russia.

England deserve to host the World Cup in 2030 and should mount a joint bid with Ireland, banned former FIFA president Sepp Blatter said on Wednesday.

Blatter, in Moscow to attend the World Cup game between Portugal and Morocco as a guest of Russian President Vladimir Putin, is on what a Kremlin spokesman said is a "private visit," not one conducted in an official capacity.

"I think that England, or the islands -- they deserve to organise the World Cup," Blatter told Sky Sports. "They had it in 1966...

After a young U.S. squad lost at Ireland, Herculez Gomez explains why focus in squad selection should be players eligible for the Olympics.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno says the days of players having a divine right to play for the United States are over after their World Cup qualification failure.
Wil Trapp discusses what went wrong for the U.S. in their loss at Ireland and how they can learn from it as they move forward.

The United States got a bit of a reality check in its 2-1 defeat to the Republic of Ireland. That isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Ireland defeated the U.S. men's national team 2-1 at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin in an international friendly on Saturday.

Bobby Wood put the U.S. ahead just before halftime with an opportunistic goal, but Graeme Burke notched the equalizer for the home side in the 57th minute, touching home Darragh Lenihan's strike. Substitute Alan Judge then scored the game winner in the 90th minute to give the home side a dramatic victory.

Here are three thoughts from the match.
