Our forward passing seems to be non existent and when we do pass it forward it isnt to anyones feet its more of a hit and hope someones able to get on it

We're lacking those players. 95% of the time nobody even turns and looks to play it forward, it's all safety first. It's like some half hearted tiki-taka (ala Spain this tournament too). Just retain possession, take very frew risks and when it is played forward it's often a long ball so we don't have to commit too many players forward.

Is Trippier’s right foot as good as Beckham’s was?

Certainly the best dead ball delivery we've had in a long time. Such a shame Baines never got a chance in his heyday, he could've been special too.

His hair certainly isn't!

Looking slightly better in this half, still no clear chances though.

What a ball by De Bruyne. Lukaku made of a mess of that.

A moment that highlights the type of player we are missing though. Nobody on our team even attempts that pass.

Lukaku should of had at least one today. Control has been terrible.

Poor tournament from Rashford so far. Pretty anonymous from open play. Really could use a goal.

Seems to be the "curse" of the England captaincy, played even when not in form.

England are, like they always were, a bit shit. Barely a chance from open play. Barely a performance of note. Certainly not beaten a decent team. Nowt to be proud of. Just a fluke draw

Pickford with a worldie of a save. Should of let it in. Brilliant play by Belgium.

While I agree the draw was a lot of this, I think as a positive there is a base there...but we need much better midfielders.

Defence minus the LB is pretty good. Kane is a solid striker.
