The full-backs must wise up and get behind opponents’ defence
When you have to break down a team canada goose coat 1000 bulbs coupons like Trinidad & Tobago who retreat into their best canada goose jacket for skiing own half and invite you to black canada goose parka beat them, it is important to pull defenders out of position. England failed to do that in the first half, hitting far too many predictable diagonal balls to Peter Crouch from deep. It must have made Holland, Brazil and Argentina smile.
The game was crying out for balls to can i wash my canada goose jacket go wide more quickly authentic canada goose jacket sale and for the full-backs to get forward to make two-against-one situations and pull Trinidad & Tobago about. That would have allowed England to get round the back to deliver crosses from advanced positions and given Crouch the chance to head for goal, but we persistently sent the ball over from too deep.
It is not easy to get to the byline in the modern game because teams force the wide man infield, but the full-backs could have gambled because England were almost four against one at the back. In this World Cup we have seen full-backs like Willy Sagnol, Cafu, Roberto Carlos and Philipp Lahm use the free space when can you wash a canada goose jacket in the washer not playing against an orthodox winger.
They have joined in buy canada goose coat online and shown a determination to play in the opponents’ half, and England needed that. Jamie Carragher does not play many games at right-back but he could have made a difference by getting forward more. David Beckham is clever enough to drag a full-back infield and clear space for someone coming forward on the overlap.
Though England were black friday 2013 canada goose sale having shots and Frank Lampard was getting into areas to score, we were struggling to best price canada goose jacket outlet usa online store prise Trinidad & Tobago out of position. Their coach Leo Beenhakker spread his players and covered the width click, and the introduction of Aaron Lennon made a difference. With Lennon hugging the right touchline and Beckham playing as an auxiliary full-back, we found some space on that flank and generated quicker attacking momentum. Ashley Cole also began to assert himself and get forward on the left, and there will be more to come from him as he gets fitter.
I think Lennon could have come on earlier for Carragher. With him we had someone with pace who was prepared to take a player on, and that scared Trinidad & Tobago. With so much cover all over the field it had been hard to get past people, but Lennon can do it.
I thought Crouch deserved his goal but it is a great credit to Trinidad & Tobago that they buy canada goose jacket london held England for so long. We can improve and must show more imagination, but the more open football that opponents play as the finals progress will be a bonus for our team.
