    Co-sign. I am not a fan of putting players into the game just to take penalties. I read that Southgate held competitions of sorts in training and he went with the lineup they'd set in advance, but still.

    Except those practice competitions aren't in front of a packed Wembley Stadium with the weight of 55 years on your back. Southgate had his two least experienced players taking those final two penalties.
    Now begins the winter of our discombobulation.
