Nice coverage Di Lo
Italy looks lost in covering these WBs. Trippier already causing problems.
Nightmare opening minutes
We are getting smoked on the wings, going to be a long night
Nervous start from the two fullbacks but the pattern of play is starting to develop now. Need to build on the possession in the final 3rd..but they have settled.
Finally starting to impose our game but no shots
Di Lo is a ********ing liability
Game time sure does fly when you're losing
keeping turning it over
Only Chiesa looks dangerous. Our midfield is too small to compete with 50/50 and obviously immobile is useless.
At least the ref is fair
yeah the ref is definitely letting both teams play.
Right now he can be.
Let's see what happens should the match be at a tie or are winning by heavens sake.
They aren't shooting....sometimes you need to RIP that
Italy are playing to slow
we are walking out there lol.
We need to shoot. Such a shame Verratti and Jorginho don’t have that ability
Chiesa is the only guy out there playing with some passion. These other guys have no zip, and a few occupying space. Anyways, it seemed like Southgate came in with a plan, and Mancini had no answer.
Let's regroup boys
I'm a huge Italia pessimist, always have been. I don't think there's a whole lot we can do in the second half, that 45 minutes felt like 10 minutes. I think it's going to stay 1-0, I hope I'm wrong but England is playing really good defense
Nobody can expect that start. They got lucky but the blanket of possession has been building on them from 20 mins on. This is a good base to start the second half from. They just have to be more aggressive with attacking play. Insigne needs to drive at people. You see in injury time of the half almost up, he passes it back to the defense and half the attackers throw their hands up in the air at him. Show some balls man.
They need that extra 10% in the final 3rd. Everything else is good.
Immobile needs to go. Waste of a spot. I'd go false 9 and try to hold possession as much as possible.
Emerson needs to go. He's become a liability. I don't care who you put in but if you want to play on the left, put someone useful in.
Chiesa and Insigne the only ones really doing much out there. Our mid looks fine but DiLorenzo has made some huge mental errors so far.
Typical Italian bullshit
Way more shots required.
They look shell-shocked out there. Has Insigne ever performed in a massive game, he's been very disappointing.
