England flies to the Europeans with an iron defense and many stars

England flies to the Europeans with an iron defense and many stars

Eight goals were scored and none were conceded. England with a perfect path reached the semifinals, at the European Championships,

they will face Denmark on Wednesday 7 July at Wembley.

Southgate has armored the defense with two medians who give quality and quantity and in the attack has an impressive number of forwards,

forward and attacking midfielders who take turns and help Kane and Sterling to score goals.

Italy-Spain and England-Denmark are in the semi-finals of the 2021 Europeans.

Mancini’s national team is the team that expresses the best game,

Spain is the one that has scored the most goals of all, Denmark is once again a revelation,

while England is the only one to have locked the door.

Pickford hasn’t conceded a single goal in five games. But Southgate did not put, as they say in the land of Albion,

the bus in front of the door in these matches and with a great organization and with many talents,

he created a national team that is making the whole country dream and that has brought back the slogan ‘Football It’s coming home, that is, football is coming home.

There are still two games to win but Kane and his teammates seem perfect right now.

With zero goals conceded, England is imperforable

The strength of England is represented by the defense, who would have said it a few months ago looking instead at the phenomenal offensive department.

Southgate has created a backpack that manages to protect Pickford well and that goes smoothly from defense to three (which would then be five) or four.

The coach is based on two pairs, the ones he chose against Ukraine, in Rome.

On Saturday night he fielded two City defenders (Walker and Stones) and two United (Shaw and Maguire) who already have an understanding between them.

But the defense so far has been perfect because it is protected by the duo of central midfielders, namely Declan Rice of West Ham and Kalvin Phillips,

nicknamed the Pirlo of Yorkshire, who studied at the Bielsa school.

The British are entrenched and manage without too much effort,

except for the sensational chance granted to Muller in England-Germany,

not to leave room for the opponents and so those who play attack can move even with a certain ease,

and one of the two outsiders advances, with Ukraine being decisive for Shaw.

The long bench is England’s strength

Kane and Sterling don’t touch, the others can change and so far everyone has played. Southgate, with his trusted Holland,

decides who to field and in turn has had the chance from the beginning with Phil Foden and Saka, while the game has started Rashford has had space,

which is perhaps a bit more penalized. Jadon Sancho returned from the start against Ukraine and Mason Mount, who won the Champions League a month ago with Chelsea,

was in the starting eleven. And we must not forget Jack Grealish, decisive with Germany, Calvert-Lewin, and baby Jude Bellingham, born in 2003.
