Key features – England

• 1-5-3-2 or 1-5-4-1 with occasional switches to 1-4-2-3-1
• Emphasis on short-pass building from back with wing-backs forward
• Narrow, hard-working midfield trio opening play; two supporting attacks
• High defensive line; early regains or forcing opponents to play long
• Goalkeeper Balcombe quick to cover behind back line; excellent shot-stopping
• Threats in final third via crosses, combinations, well-rehearsed set plays

Head coach: Paul Simpson (26/07/1966)
