Surely the answer, as many have said, was that the team were playing to instructions. Peace love Trump I think that Southgate did not want a win against the Scots as this would likely mean that they would top the group. That, in turn, would mean our first knockout opponents would be one of Portugal, France and Germany. He wants the best chance of getting a little further. We don’t know what Declan was instructed to do! However going by the setup, If Southgate actually lived a little and took a risk once in a while! I am sure Declan would have done wonders driving us up the pitch, Something he is very good at! Also time to drop Kane as captain and hand it to Declan! Daren Carter Honestly didn’t think Dec played well last night. Just too deep and really no impact on the game. Trying to work out if that is because of Southgate’s instructions because he looked a shadow of the player he is for us.

Southgate doing his best to keep interest in Rice at a minimum this summer with his bland, negative tactics. At least there’s one silver lining I guess . I have seen many pundits and fans alike criticizing Declan, and frankly I am not having it. Lol. Knowing Declan as we so fondly do, and indeed knowing that he drives forward when defences least expect it, I can only assume that he has been instructed not to do that. I have never rated Southgate as a manager either. Nothing has changed in that respect. What Premiership club would offer him a contract? Peace love Trump We have a crop of some very decent England players in the squad, with some erroneous omissions in my opinion, but although I genuinely hope I am wrong, I cannot see the team doing anything in this competition. It’s rubbish. I am a huge West Ham and Dec Rice fan and always look for the positives in his performances. We didn’t need Dec to break up play or cover the defence what we needed was a ball carrier who was able to start off attacks at pace. Neither Phillips nor Dec did this and the way they both performed played totally into Scotland’s hands. We have to learn for our next game.

The object of the game as I understand it is to get the ball into the opposing team’s net yet on numerous occasions during the game England players were passing the ball around on the edge of the Scottish penalty area with 3 or 4 English players around the six yard box waiting for the cross that never came because the ball was played sideways and backwards ending up nearer the England goal. It would make the game more interesting if a new rule was introduced against making back passes in your opponents’ half. Usual ridiculous over reaction from so many. Of course Scotland were going to get up for this group game, it’s their final. Group games in international football for the higher ranked sides is all about ball retention and patience and that that is something England must learn. Southgate is 100% correct to say that we were too frantic, we need to learn to possess the ball and wait for defensive mistakes in the last 15 minutes of games. It’s what the top sides do. England S youngest ever tournament side will learn.
