Pickford, Walker, Shaw, Rice, Stones, Maguire, Kane, Sterling, Phillips, Trippier, Saka.

That is a very strange, defensive lineup.

Our best attacking options, Grealish, Foden, Mount all on subs bench.

Not that I’m overly bothered either way but I have a bad feeling about this evening. - leaving your best players on the bench is just crazy. :wtf:

Playing for penalties...

Why why why do we choose such defensive line ups when yesterday there was a spectacle of attacking football.

If we play boring defensive football and win the tournament, my fear is all teams will adopt these tactics and every Saturday afternoon will be a snoozefest.

So we match Germany’s system up because we fear them and their wing backs?

It would be nice, for once, to have belief in our more talented players. Fodden, Grealish, Sancho etc …

Instead we are about to play a cagey game. I imagine if we score first it will be about holding onto that lead.

Our strength is in our forward players, not our defensive ones.

I suppose it doesn’t matter as long as we win.

Come on England!!

We’ve been the better team but we’ve missed two (Kane & Maguire) clear opportunities and I’m really concerned that is what is going to come back to bite us.

Kane looks so lethargic, again.

Germany look decent on the break. Werner great chance.

England best chances from crosses and set pieces.

Very cagey. One goal should win it for either side.

Better football played by other teams in the tournament unfortunately. I just wish we were a better team to watch. The art of a 10 yard forward pass demonstrated by Havertz to Werner was a beautiful thing. Too many sideways and backwards passes.

I see they let that bleddy brass ‘band’ in again (who only know about 3 tunes by the sound of it). :roll:

Because we have the English version of Derek Adams at his negative worst as the Manager.

Phillips and Rice or Grealish and Sancho...

Why not Henderson as the DM, at least he has some creativity.

If we win this tournament it'll be like when Argyle got promoted under DA, didn't feel like a promotion
