Subject: It is to Southgate's great credit that the team reached the World Cup Semi-Final and restored a sense of pride in the national team. As to the game, it was Hoddle (seemingly derided on here) who commented in the latter stages of the first half that Croatia had acres of space out wide which would need correcting. Whether it was tactical or sub-conscious that we went to five at the back, I do not know; but our system is much less potent without advanced wide men. The long balls you mention were even harder to comprehend with Kane playing so deep. I thought we looked by far the more tired of the two teams, and given the fitness expertise within the England set-up I suspect the weariness may have not been purely physical in this very young and inexperienced side.
In reply to: f bloke 's message, "For this to be more than a one off, technical young players like Foden and Sancho and even Sess have to realise their full potential since a number of players in the current first 11 are not really good enough for this team to compete consistently" on Thursday, July 12, 08:27:13am
