There was some nice play in the build up to #England's opening goal but I thought I would highlight how one defensive decision (pressing) can impact the whole team. This is a nice example of that domino effect.

#ThreeLions #ENG #ENGIRA
Stones plays the ball across the pitch to Maguire. Iran's right sided Midfielder decides to press, detaching himself from the rest of his midfield.

This decision leads to England having a numerical advantage on their Left hand side & in the penalty area. Image
England momentarily have 3v2 on their left hand side and Maguire finds Mason Mount with a nice line breaking pass.

This overload forces Iran's defenders into a decision. Image

Actually it is probably healthier for all #ThreeLions supporters to just let it all out (thoroughly un English way) …. I will go first. Italy were always a better team as a team & England stupidly tried to defend a lead. Also Harry Kane needed to lead aggressively as Captain.
This was literally foul but it is gamesmanship especially from Italy and you cannot cry now when England had more than enough time to win #ThreeLions
Gareth Southgate is all class and the experience will be all to the good for England at the next World Cup #ThreeLions…

Still surprises me, in the very home of association football, and notwithstanding all the petulant history, esp on the Scottish side, that the four British "home" football associations cannot in 2021 join together to form one "British" football team. #ThreeLions -> Four Lions
Yes I know the history of why .... The Scots, who as Billy Connolly (no relation) said, are the only football side that does a "lap of shame", actually have the most to gain here.
The British Lions in Rugby are a far more interesting team than any of the four British Home unions and there is no reason why a British football team would not also finally achieve the same & be more reliably competitive esp in World Cups. We are a long way from 1872 etc.

My first grade teacher once called my mother, alarmed that I was racially confused.

“Your daughter does not know she’s Chinese. She keeps insisting she’s English.”

I spoke English and had no conception of ethnicity. Once, I asked my grandmother what my given name - 英 - meant.
England, she said.

So I was dead sure I was English and filled out all my forms accordingly.

My mom had to have The Talk with me. “No, you’re really ethnically Chinese but not nationally. And you’re definitely NOT English even though you speak it.”

I remember crying.
Of course now I laugh at the story. Growing up in a commonwealth country, I was always more familiar with British culture and slang than any other.

I inherited my dad’s EPL team (Man United) and with that came the natural affinity for England. This was during the time of

Tactical weakness - England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 team:

I start by saying I have massive respect for Southgate, been a brilliant ambassador for what the country represents and seems like a very likeable man

However I think this lineup highlights a tactical weakness:

1: Missing...

Players in the half spaces -

If the Czech 🇨🇿 set up in a low block, which I expect them to do considering they need a point to top the group, the same problem that occurred against 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 will arise.

Lack of numbers in the half spaces won’t allow any centre backs to be drawn... Image
hence the runners in Sterling (and Saka to an extent) become highly ineffective.

2. Kalvin Phillips playing as an advanced No 8.

Whilst he’s individually been good the role isn’t made for him. The role requires better ball progression and progressive passing, Bellingham.... Image
