the subject is a player whose style offers nothing creative, and who’s action of pulling rank over the designated penalty taker was wrong on every level, and detrimental to the national team.
Are you defending this player on the basis he’s not played for 3 months, because that is completely irrelevant.
A midfielder who's not scored in 50 odd games for England is an embarrassing stat imo. He's tried to get the monkey off his back in a pretty cowardly way. A friendly, teams in front, only ten minutes left, and the keeper stands still on his line with his hands behind his back!!! Still missed .
