Gary Cahill claims England ready to dish out Euro 2016 beating
Cahill echoes Roy Hodgson’s sentiments that England ready to carve up opponents during knockout stage
June 21st, 2016
England experienced a largely frustrating 270 minutes during their three Group B matches, with Russia, Wales and Slovakia largely thwarting the Three Lions.
Roy Hodgson’s side were only able to land one victory from these games to finish second in the section, with that coming late against Wales who ended up topping the group by winning their two other matches.
Gary Cahill played in all three games and captained England against Slovakia, with the centre-half claiming that the best is yet to come from the Three Lions who are ready to give a team a beating.
“The way we’re playing we shouldn’t fear anyone,” the stand-in captain against Slovakia said at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. “I definitely feel like we are going to give someone a real beating soon. I hope that we do that.
“We have had six shots against us in the three group games and had over 20 shots ourselves against Slovakia. In terms of possession, dominating the game and creating chances, we have to be pleased.
“But we are also frustrated, we had so much possession in the second half and I have not been involved in such a one-sided game as that for a long, long time. To not get the win at the end is frustrating.
“But not finishing top may not be the end of the world. Who knows how Portugal’s group will pan out? That group is very strange, Portugal could finish first, second or third.
“But if we do face them it will be far from an easy game. I feel that they have yet to get going and they have some great players.”
