England stumbled to a home draw against the Czech Republic and Pompey manager Harry Redknapp didn’t mix his words about the performance.
Those who watched England’s friendly against Czech Republic on Setanta will have heard Harry Redknapp’s rant about the England teams performance.
1. That was one of the worst performances I have seen from an England team.
2. It is unbelievable. He has to be in the centre. We are killing Gerrard.
3. If Steve McClaren had been in charge of that team there would have been uproar.
Redknapp was right in what he said. England were all over the place against the Czech’s, with most of the team looked like they were playing their own game, with no unity and little structure. Their effort is not in question, but what is in question is their confidence and the technical know-how of their game.
England matches, particularly friendlies, have long lost their appeal. The England team overall has long lost its magnetism and ability to compete with the top nations of the world.
The England team must revert back to a club atmosphere where the team fights for each other, has a never say die attitude that personifies English football. A team that connects with youngsters watching, not a bunch of overpaid, arrogant celebrities.
