The former Manchester United and current Roma manager Jose Mourinho has been working with TalkSPORT for the Euros and was quite critical of some of the senior English players. Where as Sterling, John Stones and Luke Shaw for the penalties? It’s a fair point, how can you have a 19 year old Bukayo Saka stepping up to take such an important penalty. Even if he wants to take it, he shouldn’t be allowed that was the time for senior players to take responsibility.
“For Saka to have the destiny of the country on his shoulder is too much.”
“Many times players that should be there run away from their responsibility.”
“Where was Sterling? John Stones? Where was Shaw?”

Surely England will be better from this though with the World Cup in Qatar only 18 months away, the future has to be bright for this young England squad.
