Default Impressive England.

4-0 win over Bulgaria and now 5-1 up against Kosavo by half time after going behind in the first minute.I think England will go into next years Euro's with a real chance barring some disaster in qualification.Looking good though

They look good going forward but dire in defence sometimes

Continued defensive blunders will mean that England will win nothing. Stones ( twice) recently, then Kean and Rice last night.
When you meet the best teams, as you must if you want to win major honours, these errors will cost every time.
We have seen it time and again, ( Gerrard, Lampard etc ), meant England being knocked out.

Got to be sorted.

Not to mention missing a pen and skying it over the bar from 2 yards at the other end .Game of two halves for England.

2 home games against teams 60 and 130 in World Rankings ( England 4th ) I would expect easy wins..........especially Kosovo who have not been playing competitive International football for more than 10 years. Considering the players they have had it is a mystery as to why England have never achieved more at the full tournaments.........usually stroll the qualifiers and then fall flat.

Still as someone said the Rugby World Cup starts soon.......Cymru am Byth.

in the world rankings where do Kosavo sit?

Consider if England had, like Liverpool been trying to over come a 3-0 defect against a national team with Barcelona's reputation, do you think they would have done it?

Too much is made of an England win. As for HK, the press will make him a legend in his own mind.
