What are they scared of? Gareth? The FA?

No wonder players choose to not be involved.
Good point. Ben White is currently in Ibiza. I know what I’d rather be doing.

Anyone think any England player got above a 4?

You cannot beat any team when you play walking football.
No Press, No desire and No quality.
The only England goal came from a defensive error and a lucky bobble

I have never rated Southgate, we always lose to the first good team we play in tournaments.

Southgate never try’s to win games, he just tries not to lose.
Yes, I'd totally get that if we were Denmark and trying not to lose, but with the players that can score goals in our squad.
I won't go through the list because it's nearly the whole squad! It's time for Southgate to grow a pair.

When he took off TAA, which obviously wasn’t working, why did he bring on Gallagher, another defensive midfielder. Why not bring on another creative player, Palmer, Eze, Gordon, all could have made a difference. Denmark played one up front, we had 2 cbs and 2 defensive midfielders marking him.

As I said earlier, Southgate has no idea how to win games. It was like watching Hodgsons England in 2014.

Oh for a more positive England manager. If De Zerbi had been in charge of that group of players may not of won but would have dominated with loads of goal efforts.
Sad thing Southgate will be happy as all but qualified . Thank goodness Denmark scored or Southgate would have been raving about another clean sheet

Exactly. Which of City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Villa, Us, Chelsea, United, Newcastle, Spurs, West Ham don't play a high energy Press

It's really not complicated :facepalm:

We beat a couple of South-East teams (and drew one, lost one) playing a walking football tournament a couple of weeks ago :wink:

Just seen the Danish goal, the attempted hoof clearance from Kane that led to the goal was made it look like he has never kicked a ball before!

He absolutely should have brought Palmer on but he's paranoid about have 2 CMs protecting the back 4.

Then we were singing "it's just like watching Grange Hill"
