Ok, let's do a quick analysis of what England do to create space for the Maguire goal.

Sterling, Maguire and Kane are the ones to watch here. Maguire and Kane are being marked by Ekdal (#8) and Krafth (#16). You'll notice the centre is very crowded.

Sterling's defender is likely to be bad in the air (because who'd have his good defenders mark Sterling?) This is important, because his marker will end up closest to Maguire.

Sterling screened / delayed the marking player of Maguire as I saw it?

Kane and Maguire have moved around Sterling and his marker. Sterling and his defender are now cutting off access to Kane/Maguire. #8 and #16 have already lost England's most dangerous men.

Kane is now actively blocking the only defender that could still reach Maguire. Sterling's marker - remember, not likely to be a good defender - is ball watching.

And that's how England create an open header for Harry Maguire despite the fact that every single person watching that game knew the ball was going to him.

Great thread. So why aren't more teams defending in zones?

NFL stuff. Maguire in a pocket there. Kane and Sterling were offensive linemen. 😅

Why don't teams leave 2 or 3 up so they can't overload the box?

Any idea what England’s corner success % is this WC (including PKs won from corners)? My feeling is it’s very high (around 10-15%)?
