Compare that to Petr Cech in the European Cup final. He went the right way on every one. There had clearly been some homework done.
That's probably because it's a common training technique these days. I'm not sure back in 1990 they did that sort of thing because let's face it they were still going out on the dirty beer pop in those days.
Now then, experts, what did Roy do that was so much better than Fabio, then?
(not that I'm conveying the epithet of expert onto myself...)
Difficult to say without being privy to training. Kept things simple and didn't try to change too much in the short period of time he had to work in is how it looks to me. Given the circumstances of his appointment to the job, it probably makes sense that a lot of his selections - particularly where an established first choice withdrew - were players he'd worked with before. Hodgson's real job starts now. It wasn't really about these championships just because of how and when he took the job, though he had as good a bash at it as he could. Now it's about building his own side, a side he can take to the next two major championships.
