Eriksen will certainly benefit from Barkley being in this team. Barkley is a player who likes to break the lines and I feel he does it better than Dembele due to his acceleration, this will undoubtedly give Eriksen the space he has been struggling to find in recent weeks.

Is it me or have his performances gotten worse with Sissoko in the side? Perhaps Sissoko doesn't occupy enough attention from the opposition, allowing them to focus on Eriksen, whereas Dembele is so tough if he glides past his marker it pulls others out of position, thus freeing space for Eriksen.
Possibly, but that's a bit of a cop out. Eriksen is a great player, but he can't just expect to be given time and space.

I do agree we rely too heavily on him for creative spark. We need more technically gifted creative players in the team.

What a wonder goal from Eriksen!

Ireland doesn’t deserve shit. Mourinho version 2.
They would be so embarrassing at the World Cup.

Fuck off mate. Take a look at that squad. There's barely a decent player in there yet they're always knocking on the door and deserve a lot of credit for being where they are.

Not every nation has the money put into the game that England does. The World Cup isn't the fucking Champions League and there'd be nothing embarrassing about a team like ROI getting to the World Cup. Can't believe myself that a nation like Ireland even have the nerve to attempt to grace the World Cup despite not having £200 million worth of players in the squad,

As an Irishman - this snobbish bullshit from people like yourself reeks of arrogance. Ireland, and every other small nation that gets to the World Cup deserves credit. Nobody's going to force you to watch the games. And if you really want to talk about embarrassment, come back and chat after England's inevitable loss on penalties after yet another in an endless cycle of uninspired, listless and yes, embarrassing World Cup appearances.

Prick.

I’m not English.
You have like 11 premier league players or something? We have 3. We’re not really a better team player for player than you.

At least we’re trying to play football - you know we’re you actually kick the ball.

Sorry but I have a thing for parking the bus sides - can’t stand them. I would rather watch paint dry.

I don't like bus-parkers either, but that's still harsh.

With national teams, it's very much a case of having to make do with what you've got. The ROI just don't have a great stockpile of quality players. Does that mean they should just roll over and let others run away with it? Of course not...
