Pragmatic Southgate

It was pretty evident in this game as well. Poland physically pushed a team that is taught to play slow passing through a mid to low block and failed miserably.

Shaw, Grealish and Mount kept playing ineffective triangles. Poland probably would have won the game if it were not for Phillips in the middle of the park.

Not a single substitution in the entire game. Southgate believed England was in ‘control’ for the majority of the game. England, of course, will qualify for the World Cup in Qatar next year. They just won’t succeed under this manager.

I have never seen Kane so ineffective in an England shirt, both in the Euros and now. Shoddy managing can make even the best players look crap. Look at United. Ole has been doing that for ages.
