Maguire and Livermore starting????? Are they international standard????
Haha, Livermore, for crying out loud! Who remembers having Gerrard, Lampard and Scholes, and struggling to fit them all in the team at once? Love to have that problem again!
Maguire is good player, he may have the physique of a darts player but he moves like a cheetah.
Maradona is the only cheetah I know
He has been playing as the main striker for the Portugal u21's for 3 or so games now. He still does a lot of his typical stuff of dropping deep to pick up play, but plays more as a reference in the middle than he has been able to at Wolves, also has less defensive responsibilities. It is as much of a traditional CF as Jota can be.
Second question: yes, Jota is the captain because Ruben Neves is playing later on vs the USA. Neves has been the captain for a long time.
Hart is past it
Livermore has never had it
And McGuire is ****ing dog ****
At least this England XI has a plan. A very simple and direct plan, but it is better than nothing.
Neves benched again.
Decent XI though.
PORTUGAL: Beto; Nelson Semedo, Pepe, Ricardo Ferreira e Antunes; Danilo, Manuel Fernandes e Bruno Fernandes; Gelson Martins, Gonçalo Guedes e Bruma.
Aguero has collapsed in the changing room.
How many of these would you buy in the summer?
Nelson, Danilo, Bruno, Gelson, Guedes and Bruma for sure. All the others would be good picks (at the very least), except Beto. I prefer Norris.
wolves future first team
Hope he's OK x
Shocking defending for the first and sloppy play for the second
Sward ****s up. What a finish though
I might be accused of anti West Brum bias but how does Livermore get anywhere near an England shirt?
As my dad pointed out to me, the only time Jake Livermore should be near an England shirt is when he's shopping in Sports Direct!
Ward **** up yes but terrible ball to him by Brady .
That famous England pressure...
Love it. I’m going to tease a few Baggies with that one
What's with all the high pitched squealing of the crowd at the England game? It sounds like Wembley is full of Villa fans.
Kids for a quid. Otherwise, there would be 20,000 empty seats.
Pathetic display from Ireland . Only mcclean up for it
Southgate’s version of playing out from the back is ridiculous. Too many reckless stupid passes. No method or tactics. Football suicide
Hope Aguero is okay
Hehe- Eriksen scoring from outside the area has just earned me a good few quid.
Feel sorry for Wardy but Eriksen is just top, top quality.
England have defended pretty well. Been impressed by Stones and Joe Gomez.
The professional are doing well on their signature dishes
Not doing as badly as I’d feared tbh, some good (admittedly isolated) patches of play bringing the ball out of defence. No sure what’s up with Rashford though? Maybe he’s being told to conserve energy but he really doesn’t seem interested when we’re not it in posession - plodding around and doesn’t seem interested in closing down defenders.
****ing no by the looks of that first half, absolutely ****e, Maguire keeps hoofing it same as Hart. Livermore is all over the place and is running around in circles. Dier has been just that and looks slow with a stupid big kid expression on his face. Bertrand has been poor too, worst I've seen him apart from 2 ok bits of link up play with Rashford who's been ok
Gelson Martins dribble:
Eriksen. World class.
RoI 3:1 down now, shame.
Great goal by the USA.
Anyone know what happened to Doc - he should be playing?
All over for ROI
Never going to win anything with someone with the name Gareth in charge. This must be the dullest England period in history, nothing happens.
In fairness, not much has happened for the last 50 years.
