Aidy Boothroyd has got it all wrong since halftime. Still don't understand how some of these England youth coaches keep their jobs.

I have only been watching this since the 70th minute, however in what I have seen it would be a travesty, in football terms and trying to play the right way, if England stole this.

England were the better side for the first 20 minutes and the first five after half time. Other than that it's been all Germany, especially since the 2-1 goal. Even in the latter part of the first half when England equalised Germany were looking by far the better team.

England's game plan at 2-1 backfired. They sat back and conceded possession too early and the danger of that mentality is when the opposition score it's hard to suddenly switch the intensity back on again. At the very least you need an outlet up front so the opponent has to keep in mind counter attacks.

The Germans should have won it before ET but Pickford had a great game but in the end the better team have gone through.
