The buildup to the England v Scotland match was far more exciting than the performance England produced last night and even that was tedious. Scotland were all about hard work and playing with pride in my opinion, whilst England seemed to huff and puff their way through 90 minutes of football. A bright start from the home team, a Jon Stones header onto the post was was about the best it got. Kane was awful, absolutely awful.
Perhaps the England players are simply knackered after what’s been a tough Premier League season in which so many fixtures were crammed into eight months instead of ten. It’s the best opportunity the country has had in a while to do really well in a major competition but for those not involved, it’s a chance to spend some free time on Australia Online Casino Sites
On Tuesday night at 8pm, England face group leaders Czech Republic and Scotland play Croatia. Any two of the four can still progress into the knockout stage. A draw for England would see Gareth Southgate’s team progress.
The worst case scenario for Arsenal would be Scotland thrashing Croatia and England beating the Czech Republic because if my maths is right, both Kieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka would remain in the competition but at least Saka isn’t playing. That might soon change though if Southgate decides he wants a bit more flair in his attacking department.
Three more fixtures today:
Hungary v France
Portugal v Germany
Spain v Poland
Arsenal are on the verge of tying Kieran Tierney down to a new five-year deal, according to reports on NN yesterday which is great news if true. Hopefully we’ll soon hear that Emile Smith Rowe is to do the same and for what it’s worth, I think he will. Whilst waiting for such good news, why not go to real money casinos.
The Sun reckon Arsenal have identified the man to replace Steve Bould and that’s Kevin Betsy. Probably not a name too familiar in the world of football but he’s currently the England Under 18’s head coach. He’s played the game for Woking, Bournemouth, Hull City, and Barnsley but his finest moments were probably with Fulham in 1999 and 2001 when his team finally secured promotion to the Premier League. He only managed one fixture in the PL, with it becoming the first Seychellois to do so before moving on to pastures new. His coaching career has only been with the England youth teams.
I’m sure if Arsenal offered him the job he’d soon be packing his cones and balls up and moving to north London because working with a squad on a daily basis must be every young coach’s dream. I’d love Freddie to return but I guess that’s not going to happen otherwise he’d probably be back by now.
I’ll leave you with a clip of yet another, yawn, player Arsenal have been linked with this summer.
What a run!
