Midfielders: Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Jordan Henderson, Jesse Lingard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Ha Ha. Is that really the best England can muster?

Shame we sacked off Zaha. He would be in the squad. Real pace.

looks very heavy on defenders, are we trying to bore our way out of the group stage?

Still don't understand what Loftus Cheeks offers. Is he a holding midfielder, creative midfielder, still yet to work that one out. I haven't seen much of him to be fair.

I’m just relieved someone has had the balls to change it up a little.
Quarters/Semis are a real possibility if we have luck on our side... Final/Winning it, not a sniff if we’re being honest!

Very optimistic. Not enough creativity and a dubious defensive line means second round at best for me.

Middle row rules. There's some crap on the bottom row though

Tango knock-off, Tango knock-off, Isle of Man?, Eggtimer, Alien face, designed on acid, Russian wtf.

It's how some of the best managers and teams have chosen to play more and more over the last decade. Gives you 5 at the back when not in possession and more players in midfield when on the ball, but having the wing backs maintains that width creating space for players to run into. It's flexible.

It's flexibly shite. With the poor quality players on show, we shouldn't complicate matters. That system will be torn to shreds against quality opposition. You could see it at times against Spain.

I haven't seen any team play with two right backs on the pitch but then again I don't watch as much football as I used to.

I know there isn't much we can do but ultimately it all boils down to quality. I guess Greece and Portugal contradict this slightly.
