We may have better players, but they are so naive when it comes to European football in countries like this.
What are you on about?
Have Rooney, Klaassen, Barry, Schniderlin, Mirallas, Baines and Jagielka not played in Europe before? Can't be arsed doing the maths but I bet there's probably a couple of hundred CL/EL games experience there.
Let's not forget Ashley Williams international experience either.
We have a hell of a lot more experience than the Split squad has.
