    Re: World Cup 2018

    Maybe a risk should have been taken on Wiltshire or even Shelvey, the creative kind of midfielders that can suddenly unlock a defence with a visionary pass.

    I think we will be in a great young, hungry player positions for the Euros especially with this international experience under their young belts.

    Just read that Kane didn't have a shot on target from open play across the whole of the knockout stages must have been a space for Wilshere in that squad to add some creativity and service.

    Detached from the media hype, we really were quite average. Is beating a Colombia without their star player and Sweden without any star players a success? Possibly given our history, but games we should win.

    What an opportunity to beat a country with a population half that of London to get to a World Cup final! Can't see us getting a run like that with so many big teams going out for a long time, so we are going to have to get a lot better. Ultimately, as a nation we just don't seem to produce players at that world-class level, and we're going to have to figure that out before we can step up.

    It wasn't. What did you think of the course? Played it before?

    One of my old football friends summed up the situation perfectly IMO.

    England are a creative midfielder like Iniesta away from being a great team.

    We may be a little more than that but in essence I would agree with you, it would take us to being a very good team at least. We do not have a midfielder who can hold the ball, control the pace, control the middle, dictate play. Souness had a rant after the semi on this subject, you can't win a World Cup if your midfield keep giving the ball away as we did. An Iniesta, Silva, KDB, Modric would make a huge difference and feed the midfield runners that we have. Not many of those though, they are special players.

    The closest we have is Lallana, unfortunately he had a year of injury problems, and now potentially needs a move away from Liverpool since he could struggle to get back in the team. And christ, I've just noticed he's 30 so it's probably too late for him now anyway. That is a shame.

    I guess we're relying on Harry Winks then.
