How does Southgate justify not bringing Foden on let alone not starting him instead of the toothless Sterling? And how Mount stayed on is baffling.

That was an absolute shoite performance and I await Southgate's press conference and how he jutifies the performance and his decisions.

 

The Mount playing every minute is even more baffling than the McLean situation at Norwich. It doesn't matter how abject he is, and he has been utterly abject consistently for England, he starts and is rarely subbed.

Well we're pretty much through, but going out as soon as we face France, if we can get past Ecuador which I'm not so sure about.

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

Seems not

As soon as we meet a decent side we'll lose, as has always been the case under Southgate.

He’ll totally miss the point by rolling out the “pleased to keep a clean sheet … BS

That was always the case as soon as we play a good side. Ecador will be tough, just have to hope Valencia is injured.

Watching England is like watching Norwich, especially when trying to play through the press.

I thought that captain. Far too slow passing and no risk taking with the forward passes so round and round we go. Yawn or what!

Pass it around well, keep passing it backwards for no reason AND WE ARE ATTACKING THE BALL IS nevermind they made a mistake and the balls out of play

We didn't have a plan B, perhaps the occasional long diagonal to keep them guessing.

Kane was a bit of a plodder and Christ knows why Foden didn't come on.

BBC reporting we were loudly booed off the pitch.

Oh now that is so unfair. How can they be expected to play. Its hot, away from home, they are not allowed to rodger each other out there and nowbeing booed  could send them over the edge.

The booing was very audible, proper booing too none of this Carrow Rd tutting 😁

Booing, now that’s absolutely unacceptable 😂

Maybe the England players should take another knee and this time to raise awareness of the poor players? Maybe this time the Americans will join in too..

Wow - that was pretty awful.  But I suppose while we weren’t at the races we still limited them to very little In the way of chances.  Need to improve massively to progress beyond the last 16.

On a positive note; it's been a great week of football with England as good as through and humiliating defeats for Argentina and Germany. Plus Kenny signs a new contract!

**** me, just watched Southgate's interview. He's a total ****ing dud. Worse than Smith. 

That interview was a shambles

The hype and delirium after the Iran win was a bit OTT, most of us said it at the time.

This performance is a stark reminder of our recurring limitations playing through half-decent sides.

USA were excellent to be fair, more than deserved their point.

Lots of question marks over Southgate's selection or - more specifically - his substitutions.

I'm hoping to see at least three or four changes to the starting eleven v Wales. Including Foden starting.
