    It's not really fair to judge any of the players in this system. It doesn't suit any of them, they're not used to playing it, and many of them are out of position.

    Even if we sneak an equaliser I get the feeling Belgium will just go through the gears and take control again

    Weird lineup? Southgate is trying to be too clever for his own good, Belgium finding it easy, to be fair the last two times they played us they found it rather easy! :-D. They'll beat us without even breaking sweat!

    Fair enough you obviously have your opinion, in my book if he stayed on his feet he would be a better player.

    I have said before on here that manager's need a balance between not being too erratic with their team selections but at the same time being willing to freshen things up when the time is right. This means they need to give their first choice senior players enough trust and opportunity to play themselves out of bad form or any issues they are having. However, it also means that what I've described above must be a finite period and when it is over, new faces need to be given their chance.

    I fear Southgate has become too stubborn and has too much faith in the 2018 crop of players, who, have served us well, but ultimately need upgrading and evolving in places.

    Oddly enough we seem to be getting the run of the ball .. every loose ball , miscontrol is going our way ..

    And we got a penalty somehow thanks to a Henderson dive.

    Brilliant pen by Rashford, but we don't deserve to be tied.

    Dier has been pathetic against Lukaku.

    Was a penalty to be fair. You put your hand on someone from behind like that and you're always running a risk. Great penalty from Rashford too.

    Hopefully doesn't cover the obvious changes needed at half time.

    To be fair this is an incredibly difficult game to shine in for our attackers. There's literally no support for them when they get the ball because the midfield and wing backs are so deep.
