Disappointing. Yes southgate has taken us further than ever since Italia 90 but I expected more from this england team because that second half is not how we have played throughout the tournament.
What happened to our passing and calm possession based play? Croatia’s midfield left us in tatters the second half because we lacked any kind of holding midfielder Henderson just wasn’t up to it. And we lost our composure.
We were scrappy with sloppy passes and long balls in the second half and Harry Kane seemed tired perhaps maybe even injured. England vs France would of been a so much more entertaining game in the final because I fully believe France will crush a tired and spent Croatia now.
We should of killed that game off early, it should of been at least 3 nill by half time.
Build on this team southgate in the next two years.
Trippier really announced himself at this tournament as a great player and deadball expert.
Magguire shone for someone who went to Euro 2016 as a fan.
Pickford was good most games, probably won’t see him at Everton again when seasons back.
We need a better midfield. Lack of a holding midfielder and going forward someone to support Kane and also to step up when Kane isn’t on his A game like last night. We never had a plan B.
Rashford, Welbeck and even Sterling underperformed. And I was expecting sterling to finally break through last night but like always this tournament he’s only shown his pace and nothing else, first touch always letting him down.
Would like to see Croatia get a star on their shirts but I don’t see it.
