My Thoughts on the England Game

So France and England drew 1-1. Not a bad result for the Three Lions and not a bad result for the French either, despite Ukraine becoming current leaders of the group after beating Sweden.

Italy showed that to play "good football" you can do so by being solid in the middle and staying very compact. That is what England did, but they got drawn in a little too deep where they allowed Nasri space for France's only real chance of the match.

Safely put, aside from half chances, England had 2 good scoring opportunities to France's 1.

Criticism of Hodgson and England's style of play is unwarranted IMO.
