Southgate was right to bring Kane off; he could be out of a job if England don’t do well
I think bringing off Harry Kane was the right thing to do; I know it’s 0-0 and he’s the main striker against one of their biggest rivals, but we’ve got a lot of options on the bench that are equally top players. People go through bad spells; if you see someone’s not in form, you’ve got to bring them off.
Gareth Southgate’s job could be on the line if they don’t do well in this tournament, so he’s got to do what’s right for himself, his team and the country. If Kane’s not on his game, he’s got to be subbed.
If we get knocked out by a strong team like France at an early stage, then there’s not much you can do, as long as they’ve given it a good go. Don’t be getting beat by being negative.
We’re not the best team in the world by any stretch of the imagination. But if we can put on a good display against the Czech Republic, all of a sudden everyone in England is going to bed happy and there’s another change in spirits, we’ve got seven points and we’re sailing through.
Success for England here is reaching at least the semi-finals. But if that’s not meant to be, then success has to be measured by looking at the likes of Phil Foden, Mason Mount, Jack Grealish, all of these young players who are going to be much better in two years from now.
