    Chiesa says his injury was a blow to the back but he is fine.

    In all honesty, from the back, Calafiori looks like Montolivo. I kept doing double takes.

    It is. Was only a 6.5, IIRC. Slightly above average.

    Good for his 3rd Cap but that last chance in the 90th had me uneasy. Has to handle that so much better.

    Serbia look poor at the back with their back 3.

    England superior in every department. A bit of the load is off Kane and now on Bellingham's shoulders. Much of the buildup play on on their Right side with Saka. Take note should Italy play them.

    Serbia looking 2nd best.

    Have to say thought you guys looked very good yesterday. You have been in Europe for a while. Should be a good tournament. I look forward to it.

    Raspadori needs to be what Jovic is for Milan.

    This fool Mitrovic throwing a small tantrum when taken off.

    Serbs need to get Vlahovic involved. Absolutely no service.

    If anything, I’ve never been more confident in England than today. The ability to soak up pressure like that just shows how well rounded we are.

    Southgate is a Serie C coach.

    Only a 1-0 but England hardly looks to have lost a lot of energy. Bodes well.

    I think Kane showed enough today to be taken to Paris for the olympics!

    Gutless from Serbia. Why give England that much respect? Jesus all three teams in their group are just going to hand them 3 points. How can you let England only take 5 shots and beat you

    Is this the modern football we need to see from the premier league..,5 shots? 5? No thank you. Give me old style football any day. What the hell kind of garbage game was that. Worse of all European teams just bend over and let England win with only 5 shots. Serbia should have just gone without shorts for that game if you’re just going to bend over for England.

    It's the Euro 2020 final strategy. score early and hunker down. Southgate literally parked the bus. He won't react until it becomes 1-1 and he is happy to play the percentages. Against us it backfired but he will have seen that as the winning formula. It's certainly not Spalletti ball but this is what they will do and it plays to their strengths as they are only good defensively when they hunker down. When they are looking for a goal they are very vulnerable because the individual defending is poor. This is not Italy Euro 2000 it is Greece 2004 with Kane and Bellingham.

    Southgate has continuously gotten key goals even if they come one at a time. It has not produced trophies and since 2018 the only top team it has worked against was Germany 2020. For this reason I think it's a bit foolish but he likely will not allow that reality to set in.

    I'm puzzled at the negativity towards their performance.

    The trophy wasn't being awarded tonight. Better to grow into the tournament as it goes along.

    Serbia are a pedestrian team. Nothing has changed from their matches in Qatar. Even still they played a decent 2nd Half. Bad weeks for FYR. Only Slovenia did well.
