Squad overloaded with defensive minded players.
Very little creativity in the squad.
Playing an untried defensive system in the biggest tournament in the world.
Players technically inferior - first touch let them down time and time again.
Southgate seemed bereft of tactical alternatives.
Beyond me why Loftus-Creek wasn't brought on for a very poor Lingaard and why an experienced penalty taker like Young was taken off.
Responsibility lies with Southgate.
