    If not, this can be it, playing Switzerland tonight, should get the away win.

    I can see sterling getting a goal if he plays centrally, they'd be better with welbeck upfront too

    Wrigley didn't fancy creating this during the world cup :56:

    Delph and Henderson in the middle is poor and there really poor at the back.i think, not much depth compared to there previous teams which were much better overall..

    Fancy a swiss win here genuinely..

    Both teams look quite evenly matched.

    Switzerland have better full-backs and midfielders, England better forwards. Centre-backs, England probably slightly better.

    There striker scored for fun for nuremburg who were relegated and arsenal were keen, think he gotta move.. Must be decent, can't mind him doing anything at the world cup though..

    A poor side at the moment. As poor as side for sometime they have.

    Seems a few are waking up to the fact that they're a poor side or poorer than they thought.

    Guys like Delph and Colback aren't anywhere near good enough for international football.

    Until the English drop this pish about having the best league in the world and then realise the league is a "host competition" for some of the best forgein talents. England are in a transition to what we had 5+ years ago.

    In fairness watched a decent U-19 side tonight against Germany. So it's not all bad.
