That was as impressive a game by England today as I've seen so far in this tournament. That team can definitely do some more damage.

English midfield was impressive. Late runs into space in the box and forcing Norway's attack into less dangerous areas on of the field really did wonders. In first half I thought Norway might figure out how to consistently get a dangerous ball into the attacking third, but it never happened. I gave up shortly into 2nd half so as to save vacation time for today's game.
