Why no comments? So obviously true and a game of two halves proves it. At one point England did look exciting but second half was pathetic. I thought Harry was fit for substitution but even Gareth dare not do that.
Woody comes in for a fair (fare?) Bit of hassle but this must be forgiven when England reverts to being "bloody good losers". I think that statement was made by David Bedford many years ago when he came second in a race he was expected to win.
Ok England exceeded our expectations but hardly a game to celebrate. The experience of the older Croatian players won through.
One pass forward, 3 back. I'd love to know the ratio of forward to backward passes. As soon as they get near the oppositions penalty area it's as though they think "hell what are we doing here, lets get the ball back to our keeper (the only man with much credit) as soon as possible".
When I was at school (just this side of WW2) we had it drummed into us that you pass the ball to your team mate INFRONT of him so that he could attack.
These days they seem to be facing their own goal when they get it so I suppose technically it is infront of them and there's only one way to go.
(Anyone here old enough to remember "The Shadows" )
The team that, a couple of years ago in the Premiership, managed to come third in a two horse race once more had enough players on the pitch to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!!
England 'Captain' Harry Kane (was he playing tonight?) was almost as inspirational as the legend Bobby Moore.........don't you think?!!!!
Now, in no small part to the Spuds contribution.......They're Coming Home!!
Unfortunately it looks like that mentality with Spurs has transferred to the international stage with them. Kane and Alli were both woeful last night..Got to add that Sterling was back to his "best" again last night running around like a headless chicken..
