England played very much the same way with that 1-0 lead that Argentina did against Brazil the night before. Of course, England don't have DePaul and Messi and DiMaria to take the pressure off with individual escapes and counters.Can’t go into a shell for 87 minutes and expect to win. Italy pretty much took over after Shaw’s goal and there were times in the 1st half when all 11 English were behind the ball. It looked like Jose flippin Mourinho at times.
One person on Twitter said Southgate should get the sack immediately and a new coach brought in for next year’s World Cup.
I said it in the soccer forum, but where Southgate blew it for me was not shifting to the 4-3-3 earlier and not subbing out Kane and Sterling when they failed to produce freaking anything for pretty much the entire 2nd half. The guy has resources, but refuses to use them
