Rumours that the team leaked 

Foden mount out 

Saka Grealish in 

Don't shoot the messenger if wrong 

 

And so it is .

As Joe says Sancho omission is staggering. And Ming's most unlucky to lose place to slab head .

Jadon Sancho not featuring, again, is a travesty.

Indeed.

No Bellingham either - but yet again he picks 2 defensive midfielders.

We have an exciting group of attacking players that could be among the best in the tournament, yet are lumbered with a Championship-standard over-cautious manager.

That starting 11 is a complete disgrace. What has saka done that’s better than sancho? The the two CDMs again. Mings arguably our best player so far (two clean sheets also) and dropped for an unfit McGuire. I find it really odd

where is Foden?!?! Horrible 11, think he’s playing to not win the group

Foden rested as on a yellow card Southgate says

Does 2nd place give an easier route in the competition  ?

Nope it's a fallacy 

Be just as tricky. Winners of France group if get last 8, then Italy or Belgium in the semi 

Media made a big thing out of it. Load of tripe. We need to win .

Nope, be playing away from Wembley, imagine the uproar if we played to finish 2nd and then lost in the next round. Should always play to win and build confidence

Even if we were to come 2nd, we would still have to play one of France, Portugal or Germany in the quarter finals should they win their last 16 match.  We should not be thinking like a lesser nation does and should be going all out for a win, high tempo like the Italians and Dutch have and winning the game comfortable.  Let other teams worry about playing us.

Like when Hughes put out a reserve team against Man Utd (I think) in anticipation of his best 11 beating Newcastle the following week?

Similar to Croatia game, decent enough initial opening but second half yet again so boring, awful subs, same like for like and Sancho given 5 mins.  As soon as we come up against Germany or France in the last 16, we will be found wanting but Gareth will still be secure of his job.  He has wasted what is a talented squad of players.
