Re: Dear England

England are one of the favorites for me to win this tournament,

IF they manage to cut out schoolboys errors at the back
IF they play to their main strengths namely their attacking prowess (Kane, Sterling, Grealish, Saka)
IF their manager can shrug off his reluctancy to be brave

Good luck :)
