When it comes to disappointment, England never fails to deliver. Despite a star-studded lineup, under the leadership of the mediocre Gareth Southgate, England's performance in the group stage of this year's European Championship has been very disappointing. The England team, boasting several superstars, has ironically been limited by the abundance of talent.

With England's significant investment in domestic youth training, many talented players have gradually emerged. Stars like Bellingham, Foden, Saka, Rice, and Arnold have all proven their abilities at their respective clubs. However, everyone knows that good players also need a good coach to bring out their best, and England's head coach Southgate clearly lacks that ability. He cannot properly distribute the ball among the players, resulting in everyone playing like headless chickens on the field. In the latest European Championship match, England's offense was powerless, and they ultimately drew 1-1 with Denmark.

England, with many superstars, appears to be a powerful team, but the uneven distribution of ball possession has always been their biggest problem. Whether it's Bellingham, Kane, Foden, or Saka, they either overlap positions or require the ball to perform well. Consequently, no one can play at their best, dragging each other down and appearing disjointed, leading some netizens to joke that "there need to be 10 balls on the field."

Of course, anything is possible in football. Poor performance in the group stage does not necessarily mean the same in the subsequent matches. Considering other teams like Spain and Germany are in very hot form, if England does not find a solution for multiple stars playing together, then as the second favorite before the tournament, England might once again face yet another disappointment.

"When a team is filled with top-tier talent, it’s essential to showcase individual skills while also fostering cooperation and mutual support. A group made up of multiple individuals must embody team spirit, this is the most basic requirement. However, this is precisely what is very difficult to achieve. If there isn't a capable and respected leader, then the overall strength of this ""small community"" will certainly be compromised.

Moreover, we are talking about a team of world-class superstars here, where each ""star"" believes they shine the brightest—this can be problematic! Since you’ve already judged their coach to be mediocre, I don’t think you should expect them to ultimately avoid disappointment!"

Should England consider changing the head coach directly to adjust their strategy?

They are all superstars, all worth millions. Everyone wants to be the boss, so who will play the supporting role? It's important to remember that football is a team sport. If everyone wants to be the boss, it won't work out. If they don't solve this issue, they'll have to go home when they face tough opponents in future matches.

A mountain cannot accommodate two tigers, that's what this means, right? With too many star players on one team, conflicts are bound to happen.

Currently, England has 4 points, and I think they should have no problem advancing from the group stage. However, once they reach the knockout stage, it will be a real battle. England's form hasn't really shown yet. In the first match, Harry Kane's performance was very average, even struggling. In the second match, Bellingham disappeared. The starting lineup hasn't changed for both matches, so I think it's time to make some adjustments. There are still many players on the bench who are ready to contribute, such as Palmer, who performed exceptionally well at Chelsea towards the end of the season. Yet, he hasn't gotten a single minute in the two 90-minute matches.

I think Palmer could replace Foden or Saka, as these two players are quite fatigued this season. Bringing in a fresh player could give the team a different dynamic. You could even take Bellingham off and let Kane play a deeper, organizing role. The front three could be Palmer, Foden, and Saka, which might make the attack much smoother than it is now. However, it’s ultimately up to Southgate to decide. With one group stage match left, the real battle begins after that. Hopefully, England will have good luck and won't be knocked out in the round of 16.
