Henderson could be upgraded, but what was really need was someone alonside him last night
Should have had one of Alli or Lingard and put Loftus-Cheek in there. Croatia’s midfield was too strong to play two midfielders who want to score goals, as opposed to a proper playmaker.
clubs, there are players who can do a job.
It's just a shame he didn't end one of his surging runs yesterday with a 30 yard belter into the top corner.
There was a spell in the second half after Croatia equalised when England were reverting to hoof ball, and it was much like the old England again, but Southgate seemed to sort it out at 90 mins, and they didn't do it so much in extra time, going back to the calmer passing again.
Need an upgrade on Henderson though really.
And I liked the fact that Southgate resisted the temptation to play "big club" Cahill instead.
Wouldn't turn the telly over to watch them normally, but... this lot seem decent, a proper 'team' and went about it the right way. Far rather a grafter like Lingard than a 'star' like Wilshire. Imagine the state of the team and usual faces it would've been if Sam was in charge.
Not least the team is wonderfully multicultural and I love that that ####s off all the racist little Englanders.
I also love the fact that a grock like Harry Maguire can actually play international football and thrive.
