england englands no9
Sadly our No.9 was truly playing with the England 2nd Eleven. He had extremely poor service from midfield and wings. Southgate owes him at least half a game vs Poland next match to show what he really can do.
Totally agree, but he won't get half a game. I expect he'll get a run out with that second XI against San Marino unless DCL is fit again in which case that just may be that for our man :-(
Never really got the service. Kept a close eye on him all game and he was making runs / looking to make runs but no-one ever saw him.
Not easy for a lone striker when the oppo play a 5 man back line with a defensive midfield 4 sitting deep and shielding them.
Once they got tired it was easy for the glory boys to come on and perform.
