- Reaction score
Good result but the game turned on Sterling scoring at a time when Croatia were threatening to take a grip on the game. It altered the dynamic for a while but Croatia regained control of the mid. Typical hype going on about our performance. Phillips was excellent in mid but Mount has a habit of going absent for periods and Rice just seems to be absent. How the team needed Grealish to take on a player and open the game up and introduce some creativity. IMO if we are to progress we have to accommodate Grealish or it will be a familiar story. I don't get the Trippier thing either. Shaw would have been better IMO.
