Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
England were beaten by a clearly superior team. Of course this might not be a "real" game because both teams played sustantially weakened sides.
The plan of playing Rashford and Vardy up front was a failure neither really got in the game. Some of the fault could be put down to a weak midfield Rashford did have a couple of runs, including a missed chance.
It proves that Mourinho.s plans and development of Rashford is correct he is not yet quite ready for the big time, he can feature as an impact player when coming off the bench. I think the same goes for Alexander Armstrong and Loftus Cheek, bright futures but not quite ready for the World Cup.
So it's Colombia next. Should be interesting.
