COME ON ENGLAND!
England are the kings of the set-piece so far at this World Cup, and it is something to be proud of.
After two games, we have scored more goals from free-kicks or corners than anyone else at this tournament with four – or five if you include Harry Kane’s second penalty against Panama, which came after he was fouled at a corner.
Gareth Southgate’s side have also managed more attempts at goal from set-pieces than anyone else in Russia – 16 in the first two matches.
It is clear Southgate has identified set-pieces as an area where he can make a difference, and that is going to continue beyond the Belgium game and into the last 16 too.
They are opportunities to score goals, no matter who the opposition are. And, the further we go in this tournament, the tighter the matches will get – and the more important they will be.
England are now set to play Belgium Thursday 28th June. If they play a set confident game as they did on Sunday we will have no fear.
COME ON ENGLAND DO US PROUD!!
