England has had 0 creativity and 0 ability to hold the ball in the midfield for as long as I can remember. And they always play deep in the same old 4-4-2 that makes things even more predictable. So it means that against good teams England has no possession, its midfielders chase the other teams' more skilled players all game, its forwards basically never see the ball. The only solution for them seems to be aggressive play from the flanks, and they seem to have the players for it, but somehow that never materializes.

England has a top league but its system basically does not produce top players when it comes to skill & creativity, never has. If you think about it, it's pretty interesting that Germany, for all its reputation for being pedantic and by-the-book, produces players with more technical skill AND better overall organization AND coaches that can handle more tactical variety..
