Everton boss David Moyes remains convinced England will win through to the round of 16 in the World Cup.
Moyes remains confident that England can still come good, suggesting that a seemingly minor change could yield significant improvement.
"He has talented players and is a top manager," said Moyes in his Sunday Times column. "This is still a tournament where no team have truly stood out, and if England can just find that magic something, they might yet go far.
"Often, in a situation like this, it's a case of stumbling across a solution you didn't expect. Sometimes it is a player you didn't foresee as being important who goes into the team and suddenly improves the blend or lifts the players around him.
