The choice of full backs is pretty good, tbf, it's, at the risk of stating the obvious, midfield passing specialists they lack. Embarrassing how much better modric is even at 33.

Terrible to watch.
Decent enough defence, but fuck me, there is zero creativity in this side.
The kid Sancho might be promising I hope.
The quality of our passing is awful, ball retention crap, they think so slowly.
Croatia no better.
This was a WC finalist against a WC semi finalist, and very little actual football.
Borefest.

the quality of our movement has a lot to do with it. we don't exploit the spaces to make the passing easier.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.

Yup.
Movement off the ball innit.

Wasn't Pirlo far superior to any in England's midfield a few years ago - at around 37 :shock:
Didn't watch , generally avoid England games even in World Cup ( barring last one somehow ) - usually they are anti-football .

I suppose if you're that rare type of player (unheard of in England?) who's mostly about brains and technique, with physical qualities only incidental, then age isn't much of a barrier.

And in fairness it's not as if every half decent international team has a couple of pirlo/modric types.

I see that Alioski bloke scored for Macedonia again. Somehow not offside.

Watched the Netherlands v Germany match.
Very entertaining.
Germany flaky as fuck ATM.
Interesting to see they had a player doing the KP role.
The Dutch put a man on him and it completely neutralised the German game plan.
Lowe must be toast now. He's no Bielsa.
When teams do that to us Bielsa puts two men alternating in that position, causing befuddlement.

We should build a team around that lad.

Apparently no run out for Klich in Poland v Italy game, which is good.

Edit. Unless he's injured, which would be um, bad.

I fear for England tonight.
Couple of important absentees, Luis Enrique's Spain are very different from previous versions, much more direct and clinical. They like to have the ball, but they are much sharper than the last lot, they don't spend ages with horizontal passes. Happy to shoot from outside the box or run directly at defenders.
This England side with its anti-football and lack of creativity has to be found out sooner or later.
Could be a long night.

Yeah, feel like this could be a torrid night for a few. Not expecting anything out of it except mild PTSD.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Hell of a save on the line from their lad, that.

Edit: Alonso.

Triopier at RB must be a better bet. Good set piece delivery is their only realistic chance to score against this standard of opposition.

Reinvention as a counter attacking team, I like it. I suppose that always was what the two quick guys were in there for, theoretically.
