Experts have praised England’s thrilling turnaround against Germany, knocking over a two-goal deficit to draw 3-3 at Wembley.
The Three Lions are still going into the World Cup without a win in their last six games, but their three goals in 12 minutes late will give a much-needed confidence boost.
For Gary Lineker, England’s late turnaround was proof why they should rely on their attacking instincts rather than worrying about defensive weaknesses.
England scored three goals in 12 minutes in a stunning comeback against Germany
Gary Lineker praised the side’s offensive play, urging them to ‘play to their strengths’
He tweeted: ‘When England are forced to play to their strengths (attack) they look good. If they play to hide (defend) their weaknesses, they look bad.’
Perhaps a lesson: England is always better when it comes to a match. When the cuffs are loose. When the fear of giving in is secondary. When they play high pressure. If they are brave.’
Others focused on the performance of 19-year-old midfielder Jude Bellingham, while Spotsmail’s Chris Sutton told BBC 5 Live: ‘He won the penalty. Everything Bellingham did was positive.’
Chris Sutton praised Jude Bellingham for ‘always looking out’ in the match
Harry Kane gave England the lead with the penalty won by Bellingham, but it was canceled shortly afterwards after a mistake by Nick Pope.
Sutton added that the Dortmund star was: ‘Always looking ahead and he doesn’t take the easy option.’
“I think Declan Rice sometimes chooses the easy option. Bellingham has great awareness and courage. When you have a player so young and talented, why not build a team around him?’
