Both the credit and the criticism is a bit silly.It did cross my mind last night that the players could probably manage that game better without a manager, they are all (with a couple of exceptions in the starting 11) excellent players who have been well schooled by their club managers. Southgate gets far too much credit imo.
I’ll feck off from this thread now because my negativity does piss off quite a few posters on this matter I accept
England share a trait with the 210 other FIFA national teams: when they play against teams with worse footballers, they usually win, and when playing against teams with better footballers, they usually lose. There's not an awful lot a national team manager can do about any of those things.
