England have gone from being fuelled by the goodwill of a nation to hearing stirrings of discontent and grumblings about conservatism within the space of 12 months.

This time last year, Gareth Southgate's England had opened a delayed Euro 2020 Finals with victory over Croatia at Wembley before riding a wave of euphoria to their first major final in 55 years, losing agonisingly on penalties to Italy.

Fast forward to the present day and England inhabit a rather world-weary environment, with both players and supporters perhaps suffering from football fatigue and Southgate's squad under the microscope amid fears they have not kicked on as hoped.

The backdrop to these murmurings has been three distinctly underwhelming performances in their Uefa Nations League campaign to date, starting with defeat in Hungary, a point rescued by Harry Kane's late penalty in Germany before a goalless draw in the "behind closed doors" game against Italy at Molineux on Saturday.

I Call True: No goals from open play and very little wow factor on the field, they need a good kick up the arse and no mistake

I think most people don't have a lot of interest in this 'league' if I am being honest
