Though I could see Southgate boring France to death and winning with a set piece, and that might be the smart way to play France.

He would also play super cautious against these teams though, and might be on the wrong end of a 0-1.

He is an awful team player. He is ok for moments in games. A good long pass or good shot but he is awful in actually understanding how to play within a team structure. He was doing the same during Oles last games at Utd wandering all over the pitch being generally useless instead of concentrating on his own role.

Ronaldos issues at Utd have covered how poor he has been at Utd this season as well.

He is the Portuguese Pogba

Defensive! Only when they were one up with 15 minutes to play and even then a calm head would have scored one or two more. Their speed from one end to the other is the best of any team but they do need an experienced pair of strikers to convert the dozen chances they created. Mind you Portugal missed a couple of sitters as well. All of the quarter finals have been down to a single decisive moment and England France will probably be the same.

The tournament has been about tiring out the opposition in many games but it is cooler there today so that won't work so well. A bit of sleet and drizzle would be right up England's street but it won't happen. Any way, how many teams have won after conceding two goals?
