eyoma's struggled against his winger but thought that yellow was harsh, all he did was put his hand on his shoulder and he fell to the floor. tob's had a couple of moments but he's playing way too passive, needs to demand the ball more and look to drive forward with it.

I have had a hard time telling if TOB is playing that way because he's being asked to sit back and be more of a holding DM so others can attack or if he is just not sure where he fits into this team with so many willing midfield attackers.

No idea why TOB came off ,Mcrchon was the obvious sub.were some weird subs all game.Will Defo need a more solid CM against better teams.Reckon the keeper will cost us at some point doesn’t look the strongest.

Wonder how close sancho actually was and what went wrong.
Don't know if any things changed now but even after sancho moved to Dortmund Hercules was hinting that this whole thing isn't over and maybe some sort of fryers deal but hercs wanted it to be kept on the down low

Read into it what you want

That was a funny old game. England were cruising for 45-50 Minutes, then just stopped playing and eventually were lucky to hang on to the points.

The TOB sub was peculiar, McEachran had been doing a bad Dembele impression and dribbling the ball away a few times, costing a goal on one of them, but gets left on. At the very least I’d have just taken one of the two strikers off and gone theee in midfield and tried to stop Mexico playing through them so easily.

Obviously Sancho is the star turn, but I liked Foden as well, good technique. Both the kind of forwards the seniors are lacking.

I’d be seriously tempted to push Sancho up a level or two and get him fast tracked into the senior set up as soon as possible. The Seniors are desperate for some attacking invention.
