Agricultural football doesn't begin to describe Panama's approach to this game. Great first half performance from England, but it's a concern that the farmers may seriously injure an England player, particularly with those flailing elbows.
Agreed. As I said before, this had turned into a training match before HT. The danger is Panama decides to start knee-capping English players, on the grounds that if they're going out they will wreck England's chances along the way.
I too feel your pain. Although it seems we are now turning into the Portuguese U21s.
I usually like to see the smaller nations do well (except Scotland) as long as they play the game in the right way. Panama have shown themselves to be a bunch of dirty, cheating bastards and deserve no respect whatsoever. I really hope England put them to the sword and thoroughly humiliate them in the second half.
I wouldn't be surprised if Southgate uses his subs to get some of England's more valuable players out of harms way. No good leading the Group if you have to face Belgium with some of your best players carrying injuries.
