I see we had the third youngest team in the tournament, the experience they have shared in the past few weeks will be invaluable and bodes well for the European event in two years and the next World Cup.

Unfortunately it is now obvious that we need a different set of midfielders. The ones in this WC have created nothing. It's no coincidence that the big punt up the pitch for Sterling to chase was the most used attacking option. I don't believe that that tactic is Southgates preferred option but given the players at his disposal he had little choice. Other than the wing backs KT and AY no one looked like giving any service to Kane.
The fact that Kane and Alli do so well for Spurs shows the value of having a player like Erikson in the side. Which England didn't have.
