England v. Lithuania Live!

A very good Sunday morning to all of you in the LOB community. We reach the climax of the March International Break with England's vital Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier against Lithuania at Wembley. Gareth Southgate's men come into this one having suffered a narrow defeat against Germany in Dortmund on Wednesday, but in reasonably confident mood. Join me for all the action from noon onward on Fox Sports 2.

England come into this one top of Group F qualifying with 10 points from four matches, having won three and drew their last one. Lithuania, in contrast are fourth on 5 points from four.

The main threats in the group, if there are any, are Slovenia in second on 8 points and Slovakia in third on 6.

In yesterday's qualifying, France maintained their lead at the top of Group A with a 3-1 win, while the Netherlands crashed out again, losing 2-0 to Bulgaria in their first match under their new manager.

The teams now gathering in the tunnel at Wembley:

England (possible 4-2-3-1) Hart; Walker, Keane, Stones, Bertrand; Dier, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Sterling, Alli, Lallana; Defoe.

Lithuania (possible 4-2-3-1) Šetkus; Vaitkūnas, Kijanskas, Klimavičius, Slavickas; Kuklys, Žulpa; Novikovas, Slivka, Černych; Valskis.

It's an all-out attacking side from Southgate and I thoroughly approve. Alli and Lallana combined really well in Dortmund on Wednesday. They're joined by The Ox, Sterling and Jermain Defoe, the top English goalscorer in the Premiership behind injured Harry Kane.

Hey Bob and Dave...when he arrives

I am back nice and early from my draft day and are ready for the match.
Not sure if I like the Ox getting in... Defoe up top... I am ok with that I guess as long as he passes the ball!!
What about Rashford? Is he going to get a chance?

11:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

England have yet to concede a goal in their opening four matches. They're it's back to the traditional back four after that experiment with a back three in Dortmund. It's Keane and Stones in the center with Kyle Walter and Ryan Bertrand on the flanks. Eric Dier is the sole defensive middle in front of them.

Morning, UWS - great to have you on board for this one. I've been looking forward to it all weekend. It's a bit odd not to have the usual Saturday Premiership routine.

I don't like the radio guys are saying two holding middies...why?

As for the group, England on top but they aren't that far ahead. A win today and a Jocks win this afternoon would be brilliant

Lovely diagonal ball from Dier to Walker, but Walker was penalized for a push as he went by him.

England starting to try to stretch Lithuania with some longer balls.

Ball goes out to Dele Alli...but he just runs inwards and doesn't get the ball in the box
Take a man on and cross it

First free kick opportunity for England, then, as Alli is upended.

They don't look good...all the more reason to attack them at every opportunilty

12:15 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Has Defoe touched the ball yet?

12:15 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

England’s play has been a bit narrow, which suits the compact Lithuania defence. It might be an idea to play with a little more width. Bertrand and especially Walker should be encouraged to overlap.

12:15 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And there we go - Bertrand finally got around the back and jangled some Lithuanian nerves for once.

12:16 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The two other Group F matches kick off at 245. They are Malta vs the Slovaks and the Jocks vs the Slovenes.

12:16 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Sterling central too... get it wide and get it over

Bertrand with a poor cross..typical modern day footballer

12:16 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Lallana dinked over a really inviting cross. Shame that Kane wasn't there to meet it.

12:16 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

First decent cross


Why has the wide game disappeared?
It has always been the most dangerous way to attack

12:17 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The cross from Lallana as headed out , but the Lithuanians seem to panic. Why not go more direct?

12:17 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The Jocks could do us a favor with the Slovenes.

12:17 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Almost 15 minutes in a their keeper hasn't been put to work at all... that's what is wrong

12:17 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

A win north of the border would be great

12:18 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sadly, I think it's because of Opta analysis. The wide ball into the box is now thought of as a low percentage play that gives up possession too easily. That's why you often see wide players tuck back in and play it back to the supporting player.

12:18 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

This isn't good enough... This is boring!!

12:19 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It doesn't look as if England have any players who can take on defenders and beat them.

12:20 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

HATE IT DAHLGREN

12:20 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Great stuff from Walker there controlling a bad and volleying over a great cross. Again - it's hard to play a wide game with Defoe as the sole target man.

The next qualifier for the Three Lions is none other than against the Auld Enemy in Glasgow on Saturday June 10th in Glasgow at this time of the day.

Atrocious corner... at least it got over the first man's head BUT it went over EVERYONE'S HEAD

12:22 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Poor corner from Ryan Bertrand is well overcooked.

12:22 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Watching Youtube with SAF, he said how he wanted players to take risks going forward

12:23 PM

Sterling is penalized for merely holding his position. Ridiculous!

Good morning, Gooner. I was thinking more Aussies than Canaries, LOL!

Dominated possession but created NOWT

I don't know why I still care... they don't care about entertaining

12:24 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Despite having loads of the ball, England haven’t really got going yet. They are still spending too much time trying to find an eye in the Lithuanian needle. The width of Walker has been the biggest threat.

12:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Goals in Group C as Germany have taken the lead in Azerbaijan and the Czechs are two up in San Marino. Some real shockers there,

Oh - first half chance for Defoe. Well defended.

12:25 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Wrong decisions there by Dele Alli and Sterling

12:26 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

1-0, Defoe. I do want a win, but it's the wrong lesson when the old man is the scorer.

12:26 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Finally , some of the style of play we were advocating. A cross from Lallana was poorly cleared. Bertrand played through Sterling and his pass was dispatched by Dafoe in the upper 90.

12:27 PM

Dele Alli with a chance here but another wrong decision

Blogger United We Stand said...

England would pass pass pass pass and win 2-0

12:31 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I don't mind Defoe as a stop-gap while Harry Kane is injured. Most sides don't play strikers up front any more, so Defoe is one of the only consistent English goalscorers in the Premiership. If it's not him, you're talking about the likes of Troy Deeney.

12:31 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Antonin Barak with a brace for the Czechs. Obama will be pleased.

12:32 PM

I'll take a 2-0 win today. That would be 13 points from 5 qualifiers and virtually secured qualification.

Defoe pulls the trigger from about 14 yards. Wide of the mark. Shame.

England haven't lost a qualifier since losing to Ukraine in 2009

12:33 PM

Congratulations on Pompey's win vs Newport County yesterday. Now six points ahead of Stevenage in the third automatic spot.

12:33 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

By the way, that's Defoe's 20th goal for England in 56 matches. Not a bad strike rate.

12:34 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That was Donny's first home defeat of the season. Is that related to the failure to repeal the ACA on Friday? I heard that Ryan missed a penalty for Donny .

12:35 PM

They haven't lost at home since the old Wembley's last game... to Germany
They have lost only 6 times this CENTURY and none since, since as I said, 2009

Agreed. That's a decent return in the modern game.

Fairly impressive record and yet England fans always have the sinking feeling that England will fail at the big tournaments.

Who's scoring for the Germans?

12:40 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

It was more a comment on the paucity of options at that position for the national team. I'm not at all a fan of casting the net low enough that it catches Deeny. Or Rooney at this point in his career.

12:41 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That could be deceptive - Fox has a habit of turning down the crowd volume.

12:41 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Peter Dreary just mentioned all the mediocre leagues that Lithuania's star player has played. He calls it being well traveled. I guess that's a nice way of putting it.

Stick with it Terry.

Get it out wide! Dele Alli tries to plough down the middle, but that's too easy for the away defence who clear.

12:54 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

The word is that it was satisfactory but I'd suggest light-weight.

It's so uncommitted at the moment. Why can't these players realize that these Balts are offering nothing but a Watford set-up. Why isn't leaving Dyer back to cover their one-guy counterattack enough? Because the Ox and Lalala and Sterling are not able to hold possession for more than an instant, and Alli won't either. I get that the full backs find that midget in the middle hard to pick out, but why not try more than once. The one time they did, he scored.

I can't get behind this England XI because they bore me with their lack of application and frustrate me with their tedium. They are all capable of so much more.

Now it's Dele Alli with a missed header at the back post. England a bit profligate at the beginning of this half.

what is wrong with scoring FIVE?

The through ball from Delle Sandwich had too much mustard on the pass for Dafoe , who beat the offside trap.

I want to see a lot more of that and see better crosses from the wider positions and Bertrand and Walker getting beyond their players.

Agreed, Terry. England should Butcher their makeweight opponents.

There are complaints of there being a packed defense... England just got the ball with a chance to attack with Norwich players behind the ball... they go backwards and let everyone pack it in

Cometh the hour....

Goalscorer Defoe and Sterling who assisted him trot off to be replaced by Rash and Vardy.

Bob's beloved Jamie Yardy on for Dafoe and Rash for Sterling. Hopefully they can add pace to this pedestrian performance.

I hope Vardy was telling Lalala that he'd chew his nuts off the next time he gave away possession so cheaply.

I don't want to hear anyone talk about this performance being good
It has been poor

Gooner - Is Lallana the most irritating contemporary England player for you? He'd be on my list too.
