Think it’s a refreshing change we’re all being realistic and playing down our chances before a major tournament. Hopefully the media will get behind the “England are #%!~” brigade on here and just let the team play for a change.Well done to all the kids tonight, great experience and a Liverpool defender getting MOTM, who’d have thought it...
Good defensive performance but Dier must go. How many times did he give the ball away? Gomez did a great job in marking the most expensive (and probably best) player in the world. We missed Harry Kane although Solanke looked good and Rashford had his moments.
@5145-2-3 formation is alright. I prefer the Christmas tree formation. Obviously it looks more like a Christmas pudding but GS could use Ali as the 6 pence.
Sometimes, by HYS comments, I wonder if anyone with a brain actually watches football without being duped by sensationalist comments...sheep!!!
Seen better players in mini leagues and 5-a-side.Makes you wonder how players get through to professional level.Old school looking after each other, even the tv commentary is pathetic.If someone is not worthy, say it!!
I think we should leave Dier alone. In a settled team with players like Alli or Sterling in front, Dier would not have played the game he had to tonight.Dier's role is to sit in front of the back 3 and that's it. He's usually ok when ENG have everyone available.
The young boys looked good. Although Southgate was half forced to make these decisions i thought they were brave but not desperate. Dier still doesn't do it for me. Go to Russia. Spin the cylinder. Lets play roulette. Youth and pace have always been our best assets. Lets use them. Gomez deserved motm. Solanki, Rashford, loftus cheek all look good enough. If they're good enough; they're old enough.
The best thing about this game was all those fans that bought tickets to watch 0-0. The second best thing was all those football fans that watched at home etc. That is 90 minutes they won't be able to get back. I can't wait to see the football fans cry with disappointment during the WC 🚾
I think I'd rather see England in a 5-2-3 formation than a 5-3-2 - whenever Rashford or Vardy ran the channels they left the other isolated in the middle - perhaps a switch to a 3 up-top might have allowed the guy on the opposite flank to drift in and ensure that we always had two guys in the middle? ..I mean, it was just a friendly, a little tactical switch might've been worth a look - surely?
Stones Walker Rose Dier Winks Alli Kane Sterling.....we need to find at least 5 or 6 others to fill the gaps before next year.Gomez looked ok.....
People complaining not enough English talent getting opportunities! Well there you have it! Give credit to the manager for giving an opportunity to the future England players!
McNulty talking rubbish again. Rashford showing skills of a Brazilian, he was average at best and shouldn't be a starter for England. I'm not sure what is his best position is. He's not a better finisher than Kane and he's not a better number 10 than Alli.
