Re: England U21 v France U21

I think Calvert-Lewin is a more intelligent footballer than both Abraham and Solanke. Again, probably doesn't score enough though.

Or he's badly out of nick and lacking confidence. Either way he has been somewhat of a liability so far.

Re: England v Argentina ....

It was a fabulous winning goal and the cross from Beth Mead was sublime. Mead didn't have a great game but she kept trying to beat her oppo and I like that. JIll Scott was my POTM but should really have scored.

You should also take into account the quality of the opposition. Would be good to see the variance to expected goals but xG is still to be refined and the defence itself plays a part in the xG metric.
