England Euro 2024 Review

England Euro 2024

With some of the world-class players that Southgate has taken to the Euros you would think that they would dominate the opponents in the likes of Jude Bellingham, Phil Foden, and England’s #1 goalscorer, Harry Kane.

As we were to find out through the fixture against Slovakia the result was only 2-1 which doesn’t sound astonishing but Jude Bellingham saved Southgate’s job as England’s manager with an
overhead kick in the 95th minute with only 1 minute to go. It goes to show if Southgate isn’t starting the right players for the fixture against Switzerland they could be in serious trouble even possibly knocking them out of the competition in the quarter-finals which would be really poor considering they are the favorites to win the competition.

Southgate needs to have faith in the young wonderkids in the likes of Kobbie Mainoo and Cole Palmer. We have seen a little bit of these 2 playing games. Mainoo has played an average of
33.25 per match with a 96.67% passing conversion rate which shows the quality of this young humble generational talent this young man has. Now Cole Palmer the young man who plays for Chelsea came on for Kieran Trippier against Slovakia but swapped positions with another young talent Bukayo Saka. So now that Saka is playing (LB) and Palmer is playing (RM/RW) England look alot more dangerous holding the ball more and also attacking more and more.

Super Jude To The Rescue

This more attacking force leads to Jude Bellingham Scoring that magnificent goal that could be the goal of the tournament . Now to Ivan Toney, a player who got banned for 12 months after a ban due to betting. Regardless of that he has come back from the temperamental ban at Brentford his club and Scored 5 but in his career there he has 72 goals in 144 games. Now to his substitution against Slovakia, he came onto the pitch in the 93rd minute and the 54th second to be precise. He played well in the last few minutes pressing the ball but in Extra time (ET), things changed. The ball comes over the top Toney heads the ball to Kane and Harry Kane scores a great header winning the match for England. Giving Ivan Toney an assist.

Could Jack Have Made The Difference?

Should have England brought (Super Jack Grealish) Could Jack Grealish be the difference between winning a trophy and not winning a trophy this is soon to be decided Who is to know. Jack Grealish who plays for Manchester City under the great manager Pep Guardiola Didn’t get selected for the euros this time round which is very controversial from Gareth Southgate. Last Euros (2020) Jack Grealish was a very good player in that tournament taking people on and also winning fouls which is a key factor when you look at it in detail. Jack Grealish gets stuck in and isn’t scared to put a foot in.

The Rashford Debate

Should have Gareth Southgate brought Marcus Rashford to the 2024 euros would have he made a difference who knows Marcus Rashford is an individual who is lightning quick, really athletic and could be the difference of England winning a game or even the tournament. Rashford is a player with explosive pace and is a player that defenders dread playing against because of his electric pace and athletic power. Marcus Rashford is also a very good freekick specialist. I know England has many more good free kick takers but you never know Marcus Rashford could go in bang one in the top corner and the keeper would have no chance because of the amount of power that he can get on his strikes. This is a very controversial topic of Southgate not picking Rashford.
