England has gotten four points from their opening two games in the Euro 2024 tournament currently holding in Germany.

The play from the Three Lions has been lacklustre at best, and far from impressive.

Surprisingly, England boss Gareth Southgate, has opted not to play Cole Palmer in two games.

Palmer is known for his ability to string play and unlock defences, but Southgate’s England has been so rigid.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has also advised Gareth Southgate to give Cole Palmer a chance for England.

Speaking on BBC Sport about the Euro 2024 group stages, Rio Ferdinand said: “The game [Serbia vs England] needed a bit more control.

“Where are the players that can do that? Someone like Cole Palmer who has got that bit of swagger and arrogance to say give me that ball.

“The way Dusan Tadic came on for Serbia [in the second half], he came on and said give me the ball, I will be that outlet for you guys’.”

    I have never rated Gareth as a good coach.. I’m not putting my money on Three Lions to perform any better.. they surely need a good or world class coach, that will find tune the excellence in these various world class players. What do you expect, world class to players managed community class coach as Gareth Southgate. Tell me what was the last team he coached?
