England wins and leaves doubts

Experiments don't always go well. The tests are always difficult. Gareth Southgate wanted to give the opportunity to seven new faces and the experiment, without going completely wrong for Sterling's goal in the 91st minute from a penalty, did not convince. The rockiness of the Icelanders was, perhaps, too much for some young faces who have to be hardened in professional games like this. Three points for one of the teams that looks better for the future, but more work needs to be done

From the first moment the 'pross', who debuted some new faces like Foden's in the midfield, were uncomfortable, although Kane got to score in the first half a goal that ended up being disallowed for offside. The game, cumbersome and always uncomfortable against the Icelanders despite the overwhelming control of the game, lasted throughout the match, and in the second half the difficulties were consummated with the expulsion of Walker for a double yellow.

Another expulsion, that of Ingason in 91, ended with the penalty that Sterling converted for a victory that gives the three points but that did not finish convincing in the summer experiment of Southgate.
