There is very obviously a long term problem there. The only question is whether the pressure transmits itself from the players to management or if its the other way round. Some of Hodgon's decisions were truly bizarre. He stumbled on his most potent forward line in the second half against Wales - Rashford-Vardy-Sturridge against Wales and waited until the very last knockings to re-introduce them. Taking Rooney off against Russia saw England visibly cede control and then concede. No need for it. Doing the massive switch round against Slovakia. Momentum from last gasp winner against Wales surrendered. Returning to Sterling/Kane/Wilshire who had all already been found seriously wanting - when the chips were down. Using Sturridge but as a right-winger - a position he is known to hate. Insisting Kane take corners - something he was patently useless at. Then insisting he take free kicks. Ditto. The luck of horror on Kane's face when the last one he took floated many yards wide was actually painful to watch. Hart's general performances ignored. Not up for debate. Even when there is a known (by City watchers) structural flaw in his game - a fatal inability to deal with shots low to his left. There are of course many more examples of eccentricity. But once Iceland equalized all the doubts the players were secretly harbouring instantly enveloped them. All of them. Look at the confident way Rooney blasted home the penalty two minutes in. Now imagine the same scenario two mins from the end? Exactly.
