England Manager Gareth Soughgate's 23 for Russia. The 3 keepers only have 9 caps between them all. This is very unlike England. Soughgate obviously believes that chemistry matters more than experience judging by England's victories at U17 and U20. The days of established names representing England for years and years seems to have come to an end.


Seems a reasonable selection. Very young squad and that midfield is really light - they are relying on Henderson and Dele Alli to carry that midfield. Good luck with that! And taking Welbeck?? To do what? Well I expect him to not play a single minute if Gareth has any sense. And talking about Gareth, I can't believe England is going to a World Cup with coach that has not really shown that he's up to the job.

Well, like Lineker said, looks like 3 games and out to me, with a remote possibility of a 4th if lucky!

Phil Jones is in the squad.


And he is actually their best defender by a mile. His problem is injuries.

Meh average squad. How Danny Welbeck gets picked for every tournament baffles me.

Point well taken though note that Dier was listed as a defender when he usually features in midfield for them. Also, Jones can deputize if need be.

I like boldness. Why mess around when you don't have to.

I think most of you are unaware that England plays 3-4-3, so that means, they only start games with 2 midfielders.

Well, this is CE, you guys dont keep current with what is happening. Na playstation football we dey always discuss here. :rotf: :rotf:

If they play those two they will be killed. Phil Jones should start.

Dele Alli will end up being his playmaker.


Lingard will start over dele...

with that said, this team will be home before the post cards.



Jessie Lingard is not a playmaker!

England are in an easy group. I think a second berth is more or less certain. How they fair after that is another matter!

This is how England will most likely line up:

**********************************************Kane**************************************

********************Rashford*******************************Sterling*******************

***********************Henderson***************************Dier************************

*************Walker*****************************************************Rose*************

********************Cahil***************Maguire**********************Jones************

***********************************************Pickford***********************************

Southgate will go for a solid formation and not use a playmaker at all. Alli and Loftus-Cheek will only be brought on if they are chasing a goal. I guess that is why Wilshire was dropped.

To be a playmaker, you have to be able to hold the ball for as long as possible while openings are created around you. You must be able to create something out of nothing. The coach issues the instruction that from getgo, you must be the recipient of the ball at the first instance. When did you ever see Dele Alli hold the ball?
