Barkley could be the answer to fill England’s creative void in midfield

Leicester City's Harry Maguire and Tottenham's Harry Winks were given their debut in an experimental side by Gareth Southgate. Southgate should be preparing his side to play a more direct, counter attacking style if they want to have any chance against the best nations in the world. "They might have to sit back and invite teams on because England so have players who can be risky when given some space".

"We need that leadership and he has certainly impressed me with everything he has done".

However, the three points to cement England's place at the top of Group F could not disguise another below-par performance from the Three Lions, which again showed the size of the improvement needed if Southgate's side are to make any sort of impact in Russian Federation.

Gareth Southgate had the pleasure of recalling Dele Alli to the side, following the midfielder's one-match ban, and he was joined by Spurs teammates Harry Kane, Harry Winks and Kieran Trippier.

"After being named man-of-the-match following an impressive 90 minutes in Vilnius, Winks told Sky Sports: "[Pochettino] is a fantastic manager and he has a lot of belief in us.

However, the Three Lions have already secured their place in next year's World Cup thanks to Harry Kane's last-gasp victor in the midweek match against Slovenia at Wembley Stadium. We obviously gave three full debuts and an opportunity to some players we wanted to see.

Therefore at the break, England had the lead but they weren't convincing in the game which would have given the hosts some encouragement of getting a comeback in the second half.

Southgate should take only minimal encouragement from that however, as England have often eased through the qualifying stage before suffering ignominious exits when it gets to crunch time in the tournament.

But this was another uninspiring performance from a group of talented players who all seem to perform much better for their clubs.

"I thought it was a nice moment, there was a bit of bonding at the end, that there was an appreciation for that. I'm delighted for him and his family should be very proud". That might not look like the most secure, but there has been plenty of talk this week about a lack of quality central midfielders in the England set-up and Lallana is as good an option as any other.
