Thought Dunky was pretty good. One misplaced pass to his right 2nd half and a couple of headers he could have got nearer, but classic Dunk block 1st half and some good passes too especially one to Foden which set up an England break (squandered as were most of them!).

No one wanted that game . Players playing half pace .

Not much to judge . I’m sure we will be tournament ready again under Southgate

I think the ref had a good game.

Thought she was very good. I liked her no nonsense booking of Irvine for his volley of abuse.

So many of our EPL referees try to be “mates” with the top players. She acted as if she’d never heard of them.

Now go and do the ironing love😉😉

If he isn't picked for Italy, then shame on the whole set-up. It'll completely discourage players about their chances of playing in a major tournament, at least whilst waistcoat wanker is in charge.

Dunk was decent enough, that was a fantastic block on the line. But he only played it forward a couple of times at the most. England were so laboured and leaden, stroking it round the back it just didn't have the snap we're used to seeing at BHA, probably because Johnston clearly isn't comfortable with the ball at his feet. The buildup was so s-l-o-w, nobody was breaking the lines in midfield. Bowen was non-existent, nothing came off for Grealish, Gallagher is quite clearly NOT an international, and as for Henderson...what the f*ck he is still doing in an England shirt absolutely baffles me.

It was such a shit game, they actually managed to make 81,000 people sound like a half-empty Madejski.

You know the outcome already.

Solid performance from Dunk!
Just one misplaced pass. A goal save. Two very incisive long passes.

How the poor bastard adapts to Southgate's lack of tactics is beyond me, though.

Dunk's 7.09 rating on BBC webiste ahead of everyone, inluding matchwinner Watkins on 6.49 and TAA 6.09. Everyone else 4s and 5s. He couldn't have done more. MOTM for me.

I also enjoyed seeing him and Colwill playing together again. Good debut for Levi, great to see.

It was obvious after 5 minutes that Johnstone should not have been on the pitch. In fact, should not of been on the pitch (that's me being 'inclusive')

If you want to deal with the low block you need Dunk, Stones and Colwill in a 3. And tell them to play clever, like Dunk can.

He was wasted in that defense, because the tactics were absent. Spare man half the time.

They always say that England are not as good as the top 'division 1' sides. That now includes Brighton.

If only Venables hadn't been a bit fly, and a bit racist in his selections. . . . what a coach, though. <sigh>
