You don't get 10 million for the FLT. Important for confidence in my opinion. The next one of these will be taken very seriously.

Doesn't feel like a real competition to me, each to their own I suppose.

I switched on 10 mins into the game. At no point did I think England were capable of winning it. I thought it was a very poor performance against an average Dutch team.

Meh.

Won't be dissecting that too much. Two individual errors.

Central midfield letting us down again in terms of controlling a game, simply don't have the players required in that position.

That's the problem, no real class in midfield.... Rice as a holder, was semi OK, certainly not terrible. We could have done with Harry Winks, he's the sort, who can retain possession.  The other imponderable, is Foden, is he as good as the hype? Think it's probably too much to expect him to be ready for next summer.   You could make a very decent side out of a combined Anglo Dutch outfit.

Yup. Brief moment of hope with the offside goal, but would have been a travesty. Meh, it's the national teams answer to the InterToto Cup, would have been nice to have won it, but no more a major trophy than the womens' side winning the SheBelieves Cup last summer.

Nevermind, if the Dutch win they can put it alongside their solitary European Championship win and their three Olympic bronzes and pretend they are a major force in world football
