That doesn't put it into perspective though, as MaFu says these were high pressure matches...
...a totally different ball-game to friendlies!
You can also discount the Belgium result because both teams played a second XI.
Not denying it was the easier side of the draw, but to just equate England's World Cup matches to a bunch of meaningless friendlies is harsh.
Croatia - lost
Belgium - lost
Panama - won
Tunisia - won
Colombia - won
Sweden - won
had that run been a set of friendlies it would be rated a below average performance...
