At the time it seemed like an odd choice to send on 2 cold players.
Even stranger was the selection of a (albeit very talented) lad to take the 5th penalty.
Agree these to me where the only mistakes we really made all tournament. Easily pointing the finger from the outside though, if Gareth asked who wanted to take them and these five were all willing then fair enough but why weren’t a couple more senior players prepared to step up to the plate.
In life, as in football, you won’t go far unless you know where the goalposts are.
Southgate obviously did not learn from his own mistake, by putting a young player in the firing line. It didn't work for him some years ago. And now these three kids are copping it with racial abuse etc. Sickening.

"Gutless" (above) is spot on.
These are hateful guttersnipes, who are oblivious and selective to the fact that these are all English lads.
Tossing accelerants onto the racial strife bonfire. Utter scorn and contempt for them.
