Ex-Southampton star Le Tissier wants more from England wingers

Matt Le Tissier believes England’s wingers were poor at the Euro2012 tournament.

Matt Le Tissier believes England’s wingers were poor at the Euro2012 tournament.

The Three Lions’ run ended on Sunday night when they were beaten 4-2 on penalties by Italy following a scoreless draw and the ex-Southampton and England star feels it had a lot to do with the formation set by manager Roy Hodgson and the limited output from James Milner and Ashley Young.

“Roy Hodgson has a way that he likes to play and he’s rigid in that,” he said on talkSPOR.

“It’ll be interesting to see if he adapts or if he sticks with 4-4-2.

“The wide players have let England down. There wasn’t enough from Ashley Young or James Milner.

"They were both pretty poor and were our weakest spots across the course of the tournament.”
