That was so poor. Italy aren't amazing and aren't going to WC but were way more coherent and dangerous. England have no control or creativity and look out of ideas in final third. How does he sort this out?

Some thoughts on the issues facing Southgate before the World Cup. So many England players are struggling at club level - and how long can he persist with Maguire? Surely Tomori is worth a proper try theguardian.com/football/202…

In Carney Chukwuemeka and Cesare Casadei, Chelsea have signed two of the midfielders that we included in our #U19EURO team of the tournament this summer. Premium policy.

Here are our write-ups on the performances of Carney and Casadei. Chelsea's new ownership have given Neil Bath, academy director, free rein to identify and target the best emerging talent around. There will be more to come.

West Ham trying to revive the deal for Emerson. No agreement on a fee with Chelsea or personal terms yet.

So West Ham’s Danish opponents tonight, Viborg. Half their fans had to fly via Mallorca after @British_Airways cancelled their flights. And two of their best players can’t play because the UK Home Office failed to process their post-Brexit visas. We are just a joke country.

Beyond the threat in the box, Scamacca does some very clever little things in possession. Will be very effective if others are on his wavelength #whufc
