I just don't know how Southgate got here to be honest he is an FA clone. However sometimes people have more luck than ability so who knows but Panama would be a game England would normally struggle with so lets see what happens on Sunday
Not sure about that. Panama are rated lower than 50. In world cups we struggled against Romania, Iceland etc... over the years when they were ranked in the top 20. I know Fifa rankings aren't that great but there is nothing better to rate teams right now. Can imagine England winning 2 or 3 nill.
I remember when I was a kid in class many many years ago. A classmate with Jamaican roots was going on about how much better Jamaica would do than England... blah blah... they panned in every game whilst England went to Penalties against Argentina. Panama could be this years Jamaica of 1998.
Nobody is good enough to win it, nobody has shown that yet. Whoever does win it will need
VAR decisions to go their way. It won't be England, since we are too disliked. We've seen it in the past... 50/50 decisions don't ever go our way. We only get the clear and unarguable stuff and we hear about how we have not won anything for so long, after a string of strange penalties, disallowed goals or red cards. We saw how Kane got rugby tackled, no penno and Tunisia got a penalty for running into Walkers arm. This was confirmed on VAR. Every pundit was in agreement it was bullsh*t. Do the men in the VAR room disagree with the world or do they agree and there is another non footballing reason? Money? dislike for England? Who knows. I have no faith England can win anything because we could be in the semi final against Croatia or somebody and Modric dives, VAR will probable gives us a red card and Croatia a penalty. England fans will by furious and vandalise sh*t. People will forget about the result, just remember the hoologans... next week same old people will be calling England sh*te again.
I just don't understand it because there are some people from countries that don't have a good living standard, dictatorships etc... people that quit their job and sold their car to just to be at the world cup just to watch their country lose! They still back their country.
We live in a country with NHS, Benefit system, Democracy, Laws, Police etc... there has been some areas in government that let areas down but on the balance of things there are a lot of complainers around that have not travelled beyond their nose to see how much worse things could be, then slag off their home land.
I will remain positive and believe England can get out the group and get as far as they can before the corruption kicks in.
Southgate got there because he was u21 manager. He did a very good job there, when Sam was sacked as senior manager Southgate was put in temporarily but he was doing well so we kept him as manager.
