What's been said?

It started with Pochettino not reading the room and praising the Qatari authorities' organisation of the tournament, to Lineker's obvious discomfort.

Then that was followed by a very forced effort to address Klinsmann's "culture" comment, with Lineker coming across as "the authority figure" and Klinsmann the naughty schoolboy. Klinsmann clearly felt embarrassed and didn't really want to apologise so didn't really apologise.

After that, we were treated to Lineker's awkward attempt to try and start a bit of banter with Pochettino and Pochettino again not reading the room and replying seriously.

Anyway, the football's started now.

Klinsmann just made it worse with his "probably because I was the USA coach" comment.

None of those teams frighten me.

We'd beat the pair of them.

Just about to say the same. Germans probably sneak through now, but look poor and are relying on a 90 year old and the German Glenn Murray up top.

Spain proved they’re not quite as frightening as they looked when beating Costa Rica. They’re easy on the eye but lightweight and look worse than us at the back (never good seeing a centre mid as one of your starting centre backs).

Still France for me from what we’ve seen so far.
