Belgium vs England

Post by FactualFrank » Sun Nov 15, 2020 2:07 pm

Summary from the papers:
  • Harry Maguire and Joe Gomez both unavailable. Conor Coady also pulled out after being identified as a close contact of someone who had tested positive for cornoavirus.
  • Southgate is set to make wholesale changes from Thursday's friendly win over Ireland, with Harry Kane set for his half-century of England caps.
  • Jack Grealish is expected to earn his first competitive start having impressed in the 3-0 victory at Wembley in midweek. Raheem Sterling is a fitness doubt so the Aston Villa captain could take his place in the front three.
Not a clue on the lineup as different news sites have pretty much completely different predictions.

I'd guess something like this:

Pickford
Walker Dier Mings
Trippier Rice Henderson Chilwell
Mount Kane Grealish

That's one of the paper's predicted lineups. Would prefer Mount in place of Rice, with Sancho as a front 3.

Only 2 right backs in the starting line-up - can’t be right!

We seem to be going into this similarly to when we beat them 2-1.
Dier and Walker in a defensive 3. Henderson and Rice in central midfield.

The main difference is Trippier instead of TAA on the right, and Chilwell on the left.
Front 3 is Grealish and Kane instead of DCL and Rashford.

Why when footballers feel obliged to join in and sing the Nat Anthem, does the camera go along the line to hear their horrendous singing?

Not fair to them (they are there to play football, which is their skillset) or to any audience, having to listen.

Grealish is an embarrassing cheat. How can any ref fall for his 10 minute outstretched falling down routine?

Why a FK? The England player clearly got the ball and De Bruyne kicked the England player. If there was a free kick it should have gone to England. No doubt AC and DPiS will be along shortly to defend the ref.

Add to that how Dier gets in this squad ahead of Tarks I’ve no idea.

So much for Southgate picking on form not reputation. The FA have had their say and he’s obliged
