bit dodgy in parts, but I'm a bit lost here - we won, right?

Played a team who had the best level in Europe for last two years
Ran in five and could’ve been eight
Lapses cost us all three conceeded
We’ve got pace and attacking verve everywhere

A bit more solidity would be welcomed but have a count up at the number of international caps our defensive players have. Not many.

This is a likeable bunch and enjoyable to watch

Only the selection of Root and Roy for the next set of games would cause us not to win the group / qualify

What more do you want?

Here for a good time..... not a long time

75 minutes highly entertaining but my god we were shoddy at the back and then sloppy on the break. Fair play to Kosovo. They were terrific. Southgate didn't look too impressed at the end. Rightly so but for the neutral great fun.

Never knowingly right.

I'm probably the biggest critic of modern football on here. That first half was amazing, second half doesn't really matter, in the scheme of things. They did the Job, well done.
I just don't feel it anymore, I'm not blaming any of the England squad or manager for that. I do really like Southgate. The players I hardly know, they are producing the results, so I'm very happy with them.

I thought it was a great game, after the first goal cock up I thought England were good in the first half, Sterling was unplayable at times and Sancho looks exciting, dropped off second half but still could have scored 8 quite easily

Plenty to improve on for England which is exciting, I'd like to see Maddison get a go ahead of Barkley

One of the best England games I've been to, first one was in 1975 when Ian Gillard made his debut. England have scored 5 goals three times this year, first time in nearly 60 years, Kane and Sterling are on fire yet someone is not satisfied ?? Like I said, why do you bother ??

Very entertaining game. Kosova were very ambitious and we punished them generally. With a missed penalty etc and hitting the post the scoreline could have been 9-5. I feel the OP would have moaned even more at that.

Another win scoring 5 with young exciting players on show, alot to be positive about.

Yes there were mistakes but these things happen and they didn't cost us so I would rather they get them out the way when we are 5-1 up

I thought Kosovo, especially in the second half, played it cute. They'd identified our right back slot as a weakness and whenever Alexander - Arnold pushed on, they prepared the the diagonal as their out ball.

I am really pleased with the result and the game was great to watch. Best bit: all the Kosovo fans' airhorns drowned out the England (fcuking) band.

Exactly my point on the other England thread.

4 games 19 goals scored = 4.75 goals per game

4 games 4 conceded = 1 goal per game

You are a massive w@nker

England won and scored goals, thought Kevin Keegan was the manager last night. Too many people have this mentality that England have to win just by turning up. A bit like some QPR fans at Loftus road when we play certain teams.

Give me this team than anything under woy or crappello, Southgate tried a few things some of it worked some of it didn’t , Keane ,Pickford, chilwell and Alexander Arnold were poor but our front 3 and Barkley were good , we have scored 19 goals in qualifying what more do people want ?

They were a very good side going forward but had been easy for us to pick off on the counter.

At the start of the second half, we subconsciously thought we had the game won and lost our momentum. After letting them back into the game at 5-3 we were going to be in real danger if they scored another. The game continued to be open and we really should have scored a sixth but suddenly nothing was going right in front of goal, hesitation, nerves and self doubt seemed to take over. Kosovo had chances too.

Finally, we woke up to the danger, started to manage the game and saw it out with a two goal lead.

Great game, very exciting and if we keep on learning and improving we can continue to be a major force.

Need to see Joe Gomez in there over Michael Keane. Definitely the better option in the long term.

I thought Barkley did quite well; he takes the ball on the half-turn and spins out really well, helping us drive forward on the counter. Really like Maddison, but I'm not sure he suits the left of the midfielf three.

The pluses (attacking prowess) and the minuses (defensively shambolic) were on view for all to see.

We're going to get some excitement with this England team but more than our share of scares, as well. I suspect they will qualify easily but they are going to have to make massive defensive improvements to beat the best.
Maguire and Pickford are shoe-ins but I'm not convinced about any of the others at the back. Rose for Chilwell, Trippier/Walker for Alexander-Arnold; Gomez for Keane?

For such a smallish club in West London, we've produced some real gems over the years, but does anyone even come close to Sterling?

A crying shame we never got to see him in the hoops. Let's make the most of Eze and Chair while we've got them

If Les didn’t live in the era of Shearer / Owen / Cole / Sheringham / Fowler etc he would be up there with England’s all time top scorers I reckon.

Fascinating, thrilling, kamikaze-kind of game, like a mad friendly. You'd expect the usual attacking suspects to shine against this type of opposition, but, up top, Sancho had a memorable night, Sterling was unplayable at times, and Kane was the dog's bollocks at least some of the time, despite his missed pen. Interesting to see how mortified the likes of Lee Dixon was among the pundits post-match, and I agreed with the likes of Roy Keane of them that it wasn't just the defence that was shambolic at times. The tracking back from midfield was badly awry, where England just don't have the players to put their foot on the ball, keep possession, control the game and create/dictate the play.

Personally, I thought Kosovo outclassed England in terms of possession, passing and the cute cleverness of their keep-ball - with a bit more incisiveness in the final third and better balance between their defensive and attacking game, they could have run England even closer. Though there's some interesting potential with this remarkably youthful England squad - it's incredible that Sterling is the most experienced/capped player at the age of 24 - I still don't see them breaking their usual habits and troubling the serious sides in tournament football for now, however.
