Euro 2024: BBC Sport pundits call England’s performance ‘flat’ and confused’

Gareth Southgate


England looked tactically inferior against Denmark and had fewer shots, shots on target and touches in the opposition’s box. The Three Lions were also criticised for their negative approach and lack of pressing…

Rooney: “I think it was a flat performance, there wasn’t energy or balance in the team.

“I’m putting it on the players as well. If Harry Kane says he didn’t know what to do after the game [that’s a problem]. The players have to take responsibility.”

Fabregas: “I’m trying to still understand what they want to do in each game.

“Spain have a clear plan, they are aggressive. It can go right or wrong but at least you see a clear thing of what they want to do.

“England vary too much, I want to see more confidence when they go forward.

“I think Harry doesn’t have the legs anymore to press high. You can see the other ones – Bellingham, Saka, Rice – press really high, but one person not doing it can kill the function of the whole game.”

Shearer: “We have world-class players, it’s the manager’s job to get the best out of those players.

“For 35 mins in the first game we saw that. Second half of the first game, no chance. And for yesterday’s game we were awful.

“I don’t think there is a plan. There’s a complete lack of energy, I don’t know if anyone knows whether to come or to sit.”
