3 games and 3 goals. Maybe against certain opposition that wouldn’t be so bad, but against Slovakia, Malta and Slovenia?
We are, again, topping the qualifying group, but look who’s below us.
Scotland, who are now in a precarious situation put 5 past Malta, and the 3 Lions managed 2.
The two matches, managed by Southgate were woeful displays lacking composure, pace and most of all creativity. ‘We can’t always expect to have a Gazza’ a friend commented, but should we need a Gazza to break down Malta?
And then there is the Wayne Rooney saga, is it come in number 10 your time is up?
On Friday it’s the auld enemy at Wembley, let’s hope there is a bit more of the characteristics that are sadly missing.
In the run up to the match much of the discussion in the media is about the plan for both Scotland and England to defy FIFA and wear arm bands bearing poppies and risk suffering some type of penalty. Should one of the most corrupt sporting organisations be dealing out such threats…
And to the match, the 3 Lions to win 3-1.
