Absolutely awful side picked again. Ultra defensive with no pace. Delighted youri scored. Hopefully he can get a few more. 

The ultra defensiveness was there in the 2018 World Cup and helped to create the belief that Maguire was some sort of top class defender, resulting in £80m finding it's way into our bank account

That is a good point. Fair play to southgate!

Who was the last Leicester player before Youri to score against England, anyone know? 

I very much doubt a Leicester player has ever scored agaisnt England before. IIRC Mahrez holds the record for most international goals while playing with Leicester with 8 - I think Vardy and Okazaki have 7 too. Up until the early 2010s that record was Ernie Hine back in the 1930s with 4. 

We've never had any players who score regularly at international level. Our regular international players (up until Vardy, Mahrez and Shinji) were always goalkeepers, defenders and defensive midfielders.

Is it wrong to want Belgium to win given our Belgian connections!!? Can't be doing with England.

Right now, I’m also more interested how our Belgian contingent are doing. Partly because I hope none of them get injured. And partly because England didn’t select any players from the current top team in its leagues...

 

Edit - wonderful free kick by Mertens. Maybe it’s best we keep our players away from the Southgate Sh!tshow

I think big Slim has scored a few for Algeria but not sure he’s got many since he joined the foxes
