Three rounds of the League of Nations are already behind us, and the England team continues to falter. Last night (Saturday) Gareth Southgate’s side had a chance to avenge Italy’s painful loss in the Euro final, but the two parted ways in a weak and disappointing 0-0 draw.
“For many episodes of the game it felt like the English players just wanted to finish with this long season and that was their answer,” the Daily Mirror wrote immediately after the draw. “This time the team did not lose to Italy on penalties. It’s not that England played badly, they just did not play particularly well and no one stood out.”
In any case, as a result, the Three Lions team is in last place in House 3 in Level A. England were remembered by Hungary in the opening game, finishing in a draw against Germany which gives them an unflattering balance of 2 points out of the possible 9 so far. The team has three more games left, but if it continues with the disappointing ability, it may well finish in fourth place, which will lead it to the second tier.
