Hope England take the enthusiasm of Fridays game forward. I know it’s different gravy with the opposition, but try and keep that tempo up and hopefully it will be a good watch.

agree with this. don't think we were too bad on Friday. Would be different kind of test for sure tonight and Southgate's selection will be interesting as well given he sprung a few surprises against Netherlands too.

Honestly the best thing is to move forward and aim for the future. Continuing to select Buffon will back track that. 

Couldn't agree more. Perin needs all the games he can get at this level before the competitive games begin.

Just seen Bonucci's comments about England's younger players being better than Italy's. Mind Games surely?

If I seen the same comments as you did, I think he was merely comparing the difference in experience between Italy's young players and England's. 

Italy haven't given that much of a chance to younger players in the last couple of years and you can see that in the little amount of caps that quality players like Rugani, Caldara and Romagnoli have.

I actually like what Southgate is trying to do with this team. Hopefully he is given time to build something and doesn't get sacked if the World Cup performance isn't that great.

I commend him for at least trying to be a bit different.

We're lucky to be level here though. Very lucky.

Vardy scores against all the big clubs in the league and all the big countries internationally xD

Well, the big names anyway.

I've really warmed to Lingard as a player. He's a breath of fresh air. I wouldn't just take him to Russia I'd probably start him.

Good half. First five minutes was a shambles but I think we've grown into it, and since the goal we've bossed it.

I'm the biggest whinger about England going but I'm actually quite liking some of our football. Lingard and Sterling are a breath of fresh air and Vardy's movement is opening things up for them. I think Young's looked decent as well.

God knows what we'll go on to do under Southgate but it's considerably better than under Hodgson.

God knows why people are going on like it's his fault. He made the runs. Blame the midfield.

He also scored against Holland last year.

I'm sorry for my lack of patriotism but I've decided to turn Spain vs Argentina on but before doing so Sterling and Lingard for having class games, particularly Sterling, who was a constant threat. 

I love Sterling. Such an impacting player and he's come on leaps and bounds this season, clearly Guardiola having an effect on him.

Holland dropped deep enough he couldn't have an impact.

There were a number of times he was free for a pass. Alli I felt was the main culprit in not actually passing it to him.

It's not a big deal in all honesty. It's just a funny statistic.
