In his unique column for CaughtOffside, Stan Collymore has given his ideas on England’s efficiency in opposition to Senegal, defined why Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish might wrestle to get into the facet, who deserved the person of the match away, and way more.
For me, Jude Bellingham was Man of the Match. Drive from centre spot to penalty spot, an help and he performed a key function in one other England purpose. Numerous turnovers in an space we’ve been crying out for drive lately.
Phil Foden is worthy of maintaining his place with an all-action efficiency of high-quality urgent, ability and excessive vitality. The again 4 handled the physicality of Senegal all through the sport. Senegal interrupted their very own circulate with too many petty and pointless fouls.
In Bukayo Saka, Foden, and Marcus Rashford, England now have the proper foil for Harry Kane, who’s lastly off the mark with a top quality end. Sterling and Grealish might need to cope with enjoying bit-part roles for the time being.
Total, a very good efficiency, 8/10. Went toe-to-toe in opposition to their physicality, stayed calm, the drive from Bellingham, Declan Rice, and Jordan Henderson, who might properly now be indispensable as babysitter-in-chief to Bellingham and Rice.
One other step up in opposition to France, however they received’t fancy enjoying us with 15 targets within the bag and solely two targets conceded.
