England picked up a narrow 1-0 win over Iceland in a Nations League game earlier today.
Raheem Sterling scored the only goal of the game for Gareth Southgate’s team deep into injury time.
The Manchester City winger converted from the penalty spot to give the Three Lions the win.
The penalty decision was controversial but Iceland got their best moments minute later, when they were awarded a spot kick. But Birkir Bjarnason missed the chance for equaliser.
England were firm favourites heading into the game and they would have expected a bigger victory against Iceland.
Both teams had a player sent off and Southgate will be disappointed with his team’s overall performance today.
Kyle Walker was given his marching orders during the second half of the game and it could have cost England the win in the end.
The Premier League begins next week and it will be interesting to see if these players can improve on today’s performances when they are playing with their clubs.
England have a talented young side at their disposal and they can make their mark in international football if they can add a bit of consistency to their game.
Is trouble with inconsistency at this level despite having talented players at their disposal and it will be interesting to see if Southgate can fix that issue going forward. The fans will undoubtedly be hoping for more consistent and impressive displays from their country in future.
Very few nations have a squad as talented as England’s and the Three Lions must step up and deliver at the highest level now.
