Euro 2020

The left back situation is the equivalent of last season.

Gibbons starting RB , Mills LB .

With Monty and Fitzpatrick on the bench.

Absolutely bizarre no logic decision from Southgate. Shaw has resurrected his career and been excellent, Chilwell been ok but not as good as Shaw. 

Awful decision.

And Sterling should be nowhere near the team. 2 trophies ,  Champions League runner up yet he's been terrible for the majority of the season.

Grealish could possibly be another Le Tissier, bizarrely overlooked despite great club form . 

If Grealish was at a big 6 club, he would be one of the first names in the team.

Strongly agree with you. We will also be missing Shaw's value for crossing/assists. Especially puzzling as this decision has not been made through injury or worries about lack of experience. Baffling

I understand that he's not everyone cup of tea due to his theatrics 

He'll win free kicks, penalties and is that something different most teams need or indeed have.

Maybe there’s a man marking job to be done, or maybe they want an inverted full back for some tactical reason? Trippier had an excellent season at Atlético.

In fairness Raheem Sterling has been horrendous, as usual. He has still not learnt how to kick the ball properly which I find staggering. How can you play in the Premier League and play for England but not be able to kick the ball properly?

Kane looks out of sorts.

Hopefully we'll play a left back next game.

Croatia are finished, if we don't beat these we might as well pack in.

Onwards.

A win is a win but saw nothing to convince me that we would beat Portugal, France or Germany in the last 16, happy to be proved wrong, find it criminal that Grealish can't get on even with 5 subs.

Played Ok but Croatia looked very poor. Thought Sterling and Tripier played OK but still don’t think the pair of them should be in the starting line up. Good win though and we should top the group but not sure that’s a good thing.
