England Squad Named But How Times Have Changed

England Squad Named But How Times Have Changed

Yesterday, Gareth Southgate named his Senior England squad to face Germany next week but if you compare the squads from the last time these countries played (2016) then you might be in for a surprise.

Comparisons

26 March 2016

The year of the European Championships...hopes were high that Roy Hodgson's group of players were going to do something special, especially after England beat Germany 3-2 in front of a 71,413 Olypiastadion crowd. And we all know what happened against Iceland, don't we!

I honestly can't tell. Why? Because no matter how many times over the years I've thought our squad looks good, they still fail to really delivery when the pressure is on (tournaments) and I find it incredibly difficult to get enthused with friendlies!

I agree with friendlies, except games against Germany and Scotland. Not too sure why but these two countries are the only ones I get excited about (if you can call it that). Will England win over in Germany? I doubt it. The next game is a WCQ against Lithuania - will England win? No idea but lets hope so.

all games should have a meaning and should go to a points system which has a bearing on where your club is in world rankings, I also think that the top 18 ranked teams should be included automatically in the World Cup and the top 12 in the Euros, they could still be entered into the various groups with the best of the rest qualifying.

Lukas Podolski may have stolen the show but it was the first time since before the World Cup tournament in South Africa that I can say I actually enjoyed watching England.
