Not quick enough often enough. Needs more zip.

Sounds familiar doesn’t it! If it’s anything like Norwich we’ll be waiting another 25 minutes before we start performing…

Patience required. We're struggling to play through the Yank press and not really pressing them.

They are 100% better than Iran.

Hopefully the yanks will knacker themselves out after 60 minutes like v Wales. 

Wales upped their game in the second half, not sure England have the ability to do that?

I was just thinking it was a very Smith performance so far.  Not doing any of the things which made us successful against Iran.  Far too slow, far too few options for one touch passing.  On the couple of occasions we have we've opened them up.

Surely if they are pressing us then we try and stretch them not just have Stones and Maguire tapping to each other. A couple of long diagonal balls might make them think differently.

England beat Iran by exploiting the space out wide, Iran defend narrow, Wales tried to do that today but weren’t good enough to do it. USA present a completely different challenge

Not watching the game but from comments on the game here and elsewhere if England think they’ll be lifting the trophy they must be in la-la land

La la land is a bit more interesting

Don't disagree.  But we aren't moving the ball quickly enough or offering enough movement to create anything.
