Scotland could have won by two goals with a bit of luck.
So could England, had Stones’s header gone in, and Mount had put that pass from Sterling the right side of the post.
One of those games where Scotland had nowt to lose but England had everything to lose. Clarke’s team-talk would have been very simple, “You’re playing England”.
Southgate has the England squad set up to play against continental opposition. He got it spot-on against World Cup Finalists Croatia last weekend, but the same lineup was never going to work against a Home Nations side where many of the players know each other inside-out.
These were two teams that have both played two games but have only one goal between them. 0-0 was always on the cards.
England haven’t conceded a goal for a long while, but aren’t scoring enough despite having a “wealth of young attacking talent”.
They couldn’t score against Alcy’s Mickey Mouse goalkeeper.
Kane looks like he’s playing to stay at Spurs, and the two City lads, who are World-beaters when Pep is barking at them, always seem to make the wrong decision in an England shirt.
I expect to see a different game against the Czech Republic.
