England Rallying Cry.
So here we are, the last 16 of another international tournament and about to face the old enemy at Wembley, many people are still filled with an air of negativity after what others see as a successful group stage of 2 wins and a draw and 3 clean sheets, the draw against a Scotland side who raised their game and played out of their skin (and still couldn’t beat us I may add).
Move on from this and we’ve had foreign managers, the golden era with Beckham and the likes and then lost…again…to the Germans, this time with an element of bullshit after Lampard’s goal was ruled out although it was 5ft over the line, the World Cup of 2018 was great and we did well to get as far as we did but yet again fell at the last (almost) hurdle.
Now on to 2020(21) and the negativity around what we are doing is really starting to be just that, a real negative vibe when in reality we are in fantastic shape, who wants some washed up foreign manager who just wants a payday to try and get us to a tournament win? Not me, I believe Southgate should be given the opportunity and the backing of the nation, he’s a proud Englishman we have a fantastic squad of players, arguably the best in the tournament, no one team has lit up this tournament yet, not one! Italy looked good but when it came to the knockout crunch against Austria they fell off a little.
