First things first what a relief, eh?
England have drawn three of their last four opening games at major tournaments and this had all the hallmarks of another s***house stalemate.
But Sir Harold of Kane dragged us past those pesky Tunisians with a so un-England-like late winner.
We fully deserved it in truth, undone by an utter brain fart from Kyle Walker which looked for all the world like it was going to cost us.
But Gareth Southgate, who must be praised for his selection of Harry Maguire over Gary Cahill and just one midfield ‘pivot’ in Jordan Henderson, needs to take a look at one key area.
The Three Lions boss opted for Ashley Young over Danny Rose at left back and frankly anyone who endured that pretty unbearable 90 minutes can see it was a mistake.
Young, to put it bluntly, is severely limited, slowing down attacks and persistently narrowing the England attack by cutting in from the flank on his right foot.
The Man United utility man is the elder statesman of the England squad but at times he was frustratingly Young by name, young by nature.
Tunisia were hardly canny and cunning, but Young consistently fell into the trap of conceding naive and cheap fouls when the opposition were going nowhere.
Kieran Trippier’s inclusion also renders Young obsolete because the Spurs man’s delivery from set pieces is far superior.
It all points to one thing – Rose has to start for the rest of the tournament.
The Spurs left back adds far more natural width to Southgate’s side, pulling the opposition defence apart and creating more space for the likes of Jesse Lingard, Raheem Sterling and Dele Alli to exploit.
A natural left footer gives their approach way more balance rather than the predictive, turgid nature of Young’s build up.
You know what to do Gareth; unleash England’s Rose.
