Young keeps losing the ball, definitely been our weak point so far.

Hoddle still going on about offside when the flag went up because the ball was out :D just an absolute car crash.

If England doesn't sort the  defense out, this might aswell be another classic bottling.

Yeah, it wasn't offside. That's a terrible miss, to somehow hit the post from there. :lol:

First chance is worse, all he has to do is pass to Sterling for an open goal. If you don't pass you have to score simply.

What the **** was that, Lingard?

That's in the sort of range where you just gotta put your laces through it.

I'm not comfy with all these passes in our own area.

Its obviously a tactic, done it all WC but you can see a massive mistake happening

They've been doing it all tournament and seem very comfortable playing that way in fairness.

Yeah and any sign of trouble, let Pickford launch it

He's got two defenders and Sterling in front of him. 

Yeah but if you launch it you might not score, but you get a better chance of winning a corner or forcing a save. Lingard completely miscued and it looks like a bad miss.

Or slamming it into one of three players in front of you. Right choice, bad execution. Not exactly a nailed on chance like Kane's tbh

Henderson's trying too many long range passes it seems. Not really coming off but if any of them do, Croatia will be in trouble.

That was like Sunday league when someone is frustrated and just intent at taking someone out :D

You mean a Rooney challenge?

Agree but we need a bit of game management into half time. Just ease ourselves into the break.

I'd love to know what Hendersons passing stats are, he hasn't seemed to find an England shirt with any passes so far.

Not seen anythin of Alli so far , would like to see him assert himself a bit more ..

 

And don't want to see Kane too deep either, although I do understand his role there.

One mistake away from sending Sterling through one on one with the keeper at the moment. Then there's the set piece danger.

But no Second goal and first poor clearance by Pick almost cost them.

68% which is awful considering he's not taking set pieces

Half Time, 1-0. Croatia have recovered a bit, but they've still seemed lethargic from the get go. These older players are really gonna start feeling the previous two games in the latter stages of the game.

Summary:

 

Need more from Kane, need more from Alli .. 

Young to calm down and play it simple..

Sterling to carry on running around a bit, that's fine..

Hendo to play it simple metronome style

Defence on the whole is great.

Keeping is textbook so far, actually had a bit to do with his feet.
