At the rate England is playing, it would be a bonus if they can get into the last 16 teams. Very uninspiring display with the typical back passing all the time and then the long looping ball to nobody

Strange replacement by Southgate taking off DA whom I thought was one of the better England player tonight
And strangely free kicks taken by Young??

Lucky win by England 2-1 both scored by Kane who only had two shots on goal and both he scored.

Imo I thought DA was doing so badly that I didnít even noticed he was on the field. Didnít do anything that I took note of him

DA was better in the first 20 minutes.
Lingard was wasteful, some of the chances were almost goal at his mercy.
Kane just knew where he should be in front of goals.

Yes it is true that England dominated possession and had more shots on goal but the finishing by the strikers were completely off the mark.
We see the defenders wanting to play forward all the time esp Mcguire and Walker and against better teams could be seriously exposed
Both Lingard and Sterling were really wasteful in their finishing through out the game. Rashford and Loftus Cheek did inject speed with their intro but again no finishing product to cap their game
With total of 17 attempts on goal and converting 2 (both from corner kicks by Kane) was honestly not good esp on World Cup stage

Ali and Sterling waste of space. Lingard better but not much.
England should have won it earlier if either one of the fouls on Kane in the box was checked by VAR, certain pens.
Rashford should start. Sterling come on as sub to attack tiring defenders.
Against Belgium, they better up their game
