That wasnt even a diamond 4-4-2. Rooney played very advanced and Kane-Vardy wide.
How the f*ck is that even logical?
'Because after that they were trying to defend'
Reassuring to know Roy hasnt factored opponents 'trying to defend' into his match preparation, presumably because he never does
This is gold, Daily mail made in 2007 his Euro 2016 England team
Mind you I'm pretty sure my predictions included captain Phil Jones
Surely Rooney should be in there? That one was the freebie.
I also had high expectations for Richards
They even named him captain
Why did they put Amos ahead of Joe Hart?
I called Dier to the England squad as soon as he signed for Spurs.
I called him when he was still in Lisbon
Do you really pronounce Dier and Dyer the same way? Every time I hear the local commentators mentioning him, I get horrible flashbacks of Kieron Dyer being frustrating.
There was even a brief time when I had national team hope for Nathan Dyer
Nathan Dyer and Kieron Dyer both deserve being selected over Wilshere.
Carlos was bad that game. Really bad.
Sky Sports News HQ understands senior members of the squad were concerned Hodgson's tactics would not get the best out of the team, while others questioned the selection of players suffering a lack of confidence or form.
SSNHQ has been told that senior England players:
Were surprised by the use of a 4-3-3 formation, which had barely been implemented in any of England's friendly matches in 2016.
Questioned the selection of Raheem Sterling for the Iceland game, after he showed signs of lacking confidence throughout the tournament.
Felt momentum had been lost by making six changes for the Slovakia game, which they drew 0-0.
Wondered why Adam Lallana did not start against Iceland after his impressive performances during the group stages.
Debated among themselves the merits of playing Wayne Rooney in midfield, for the first time in his England career.
Were left frustrated that Marcus Rashford was left to warm up for approximately 10 minutes before he was sent on for the final four minutes of the Iceland game with England in desperate need of a goal.
Felt Hodgson's pre-prepared statement at the post-Iceland press conference was an indication he may have doubted the team's chances before the game.
Roy Hodgson during his short spell in charge of inter in the 90s shipped Roberto Carlos out because he 'didn't think he could ever make it as a left back'
Hahahaj thats a classic, he signed Alessandro Pistone instead
Roberto Carlos on Roy Hodgson:
"He told me I would never succeed as left back. I told him that he doesn't understand football."
