Spain v England - 7.45pm tonight

Post by 1964white » Mon Oct 15, 2018 11:06 am

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez will start for England against Spain on Monday - after a glowing reference from Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate

The 21-year-old will win his fifth cap in the Nations League game in Real Betis' Estadio Benito Villamarin.

He will replace John Stones, who is suspended after his yellow card in the goalless draw with Croatia behind closed doors in Rijeka on Friday.

"Joe's in really good form for his club," said Southgate.

"In his matches for us, against Spain and Brazil, he has given really polished performances.

"He's a young defender but a very good defender. He has got great athleticism and uses the ball well. I'm looking forward to seeing him in this game.

"It's another opportunity to look at a couple of younger players. We're slowly building a squad who are comfortable at this level."

As above. Get hard to get enthused about the national squad when we are light years away from being top class. We got extremely lucky with the draw at the world cup and getting to the semi-finals masked how poor we are in midfield and how overly reliant we are on Harry Kane. Hopefully blooding the younger players now gives us a chance of having a decent team in a few years time but would much rather have been watching Leeds.

Fantastic effort so far by England, I guess the World Cup wasn't a flukey luck of the draw result.
We're going up like there is no gravity!

Didn't bother watching because I thought it would be a drab drawn out affair with a boring England, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Just checked half time and watched the goals, Jordan Pickford gets rid of the ball so well....such intelligent distribution from the young England keeper.

No-one would have expected the scoreline, but England are nowhere near as bad as some make out.
