6 goals against Iran does not make a World Cup winning favourite…
USA Were never gonna be push overs but I think we went into this game with a bit of an attitude of the welsh…

I hope sir Gareth pulls them up, tightens the field and gives them a kick up the ass…

The problem with hoping they’ll tire out is we’re playing at such a slow tempo the yank players are getting a good breather too.

England need a more attacking option . This is far too slow . Maguire and stones were walking and passing to each other . It set the tone

Sterling, what's the point?

Saka made a few good runs inside but needs to receive ball sooner.

Two planks at the back are causing the whole team to plod, with their negative play.

Yes I don't think we've worked them at all. They aren't pressing our centrebacks like they did against the Welsh, just cut off our passes into the midfield.

I’d take off Mount and Sterling for Grealish and Foden. Need players comfortable with the ball to feet and to play around a press.
If it doesn’t improve early in the second half I’d be tempted to ditch Kane for Rashford, kane doesn’t look 100% and it gives the option to put balls through from deep or over the top for him to run onto.
