    I have no idea who they are, but you should never expect anything from any football commentator.

    My main two observations from the tournament so far:

    - Loads of teams playing 3-at-the-back
    - Loads of teams wearing a single colour kit

    Every game has had an (at least one) early goal so far.

    Probably means nothing but Iíve noticed in most games that teams are shooting towards their own fans in the first half, whereas we normally see that in the second half.

    Sesko can wallop the ball, shame he hit the post.

    Set up nicely now though.

    They haven’t half done a 180 with their added time this tournament. Was it the World Cup where they made a point to add 7+ every half?

    At least Micah Richards isn't the England manager.

    For the midfield line-up I would put Jude Bellingham deeper next to Declan Rice and have Phil Foden as the number 10.

    Better than trusting Alexander Arnold in midfield.

    England should have more than enough to win today but the Serbs front two should be able to bully that left side of England’s defence in the air. Declan Rice is also going to have to play the most disciplined football of his life

    England have a hell of a lot of good options for the roles in behind Kane. Also Anthony Gordon.

    It will be the defence or the waistcoat that will stop them.

    This is true.

    Maybe he's going for the renegade 4-1-4-1 with defensive wide men to free up Foden and Bellingham. Doubtful though.

    I think his logic was to simply give Bellingham more time on the ball. I can ... sort of see it but he's not that type of water carrier, is he? I dunno, I don't see him every week.

    I quite like TAA as a cm in theory. Rather that than having Bellingham deeper, and it's better than the likes of Henderson and Phillips.

    It's just a bit baffling that he'd send Maddison home, only to end up having to play a right back in Central midfield because of his passing range.

    Not having a proper left back is more of a problem for me. I will say that I have more faith in Trent as a midfielder than I do in Joe Hart as a pundit, bloody hell.

    Mainoo isn't ready and is no more a holding midfielder than dear old 'Trent'.

    At least this is theoretically attacking, although it would be better if he just played Alexander-Arnold at right back. He's the best one we have available and was much better when he went there in whatever warm-up game it was.

    Shaw will be back for the knockouts. It's coming home.

    I'm good with Trent in the middle. It's the defence that worries me against this Yugoslav frontline.
