The problem with England is it's individual players cannot play together as a team. On paper, they're one of the best teams in the world. But England managers are more concerned with fielding the better known players rather than experimenting with who works well together.
Not just that but the players we produce nowadays are a different breed. They're more like Spanish/Italian players with flair and quick passing, which I think is discouraged when you put an England shirt on. If a player like Rooney or Lampard cannot play in their natural position, don't force them into another for the sake of having them on the pitch.
We had 60% possession against Uruguay, we just can't find an end product.
