    Lingard can be a bit sparky, but what the fuck was going on there?

    No need to lay it on generously for the Slovenes so often when they created enough of their own.

    Interesting game. All the pretenders to the be the 'main man' for England, whether as captain, play-maker or goal scorer, were simply brutal. Deir, Stones,Henderson, Ali, and Sturridge respectively. The latter should never start for England again. Slovenia should have won by a couple of goals. England didn't get a shot on target until the 55 min I think.
    So this is what England look likes with Rooney 'retired'. And will continue to look like. Instead of qualifying with ease, it's back to England displaying their traditional strengths: bluff, bluster and scuffling. Enjoy.

    Yawn, tbh.

    Point is ok but performance was awful.

    This is also how England looked when Rooney wasn't retired. Awful as they were, the Iceland game was worse.

    No it isn't. When was the last time England played this badly in a qualifier? When was the last time they lost or even drew a qualifier? England against Russia was one of the best displays by England at a tournament for years. Result didn't match it but still. The second half against Wales again edge of the seat stuff. Rooney contribution from midfield incidentally, critical to both. Iceland was an unmitigated disaster. But it was at least in a tournament. On the night, Hart's display was easily his worst. Tonight it was arguably his best. That says it all. At this rate this side will struggle to even get to a tournament to get knocked out.

    Malta away tonight, Henderson captains.

    England XI: Hart, Jones, Bertrand, Walker, Cahill, Sterling, Livermore, Alli, Henderson, Kane, Oxlade-Chamberlain.

    Subs: Butland, Smalling, Cresswell, Keane, Stones, Chalobah, Defoe, Sturridge, Welbeck, Vardy, Rashford, Heaton.

    Like others, would have liked to have seen Butland given a chance to get some competitive international minutes under his belt.

    The Boy danny la rouge is probably wrong.

    Three shots on goal according to beeb, so technically correct.
