hi Raggy

" Excuse me for being cynical, but I wonder if England lost "on purpose" in order to be in the "weaker" section of the knock out phase."

I am sure that this would have been discussed by both teams.

I don't believe that England deliberately Played to lose.

Colombia are by no means a weak team.

If they did deliberately lose they are walking on thin ice.
