Isolated a talented striker up front. Lost possession cheaply. Couldn’t score from open play. Vulnerable defending set-pieces. Star player sent off for violent conduct. Beaten on penalties. Who says England weren’t in the World Cup final?

They scored too many penalties to be England.
Brilliant though, wasn’t it? I’ve never quite seen anything like that on a football field. Truthfully, I think i want more of it.
