England have kept up their winning ways in this International break and against both the Czech Republic and yesterday against Montenegro, they have won their games easily.
England have won 5-0 and 5-1 respectively so we can score the goals these days with Raheem Sterling starting to look like a world-class player.
And that’s after the team did so well in the World Cup in Russia and reached the semi-finals before being knocked out by Croatia – and we could so e.
That was the best we have done since Sir Bobby Robson’s England side were knocked out on penalties after extra time in the semi-final stage back in 1990.
I need to take back what I said about manager Gareth Southgate not having done anything in management to be suited for the England job.
While that may have been true he’s done fabulously well and I take my hat off to him – and he’s also such a gentleman too.
Sean Longstaff – one of the best young English players
England seems to have many young players coming through the ranks who look really impressive.
One such player BBC Match of the Day lead pundit Gary Lineker has named is 21-year-old Sean Longstaff.
Sean was outstanding for us before he picked up a knee ligament injury – which seems to be healing quicker than expected – which is good news.
Here’s Linekar’s tweet as he picks some young up-and-coming English players.
England are good. Will be better. Some have been around for a while…Sterling, Kane, Stones, Maguire, Walker, Trippier, Rashford….then there’s Alexander-Arnold, Foden, Hudson-Odoi, Gomez, Sancho, Rice, Nelson, Longstaff, Gibbs-White, Clarke, Chilwell, Greenwood. I could go on

Sean is starting to get the recognition he deserves – and the North Shields lad will be ready to go in preseason.
Next season could be a huge season for the 21-year-old who seems able to handle the fame that comes with being so good.
