I think England has plenty of creative players.
Rooney has easily scored one of the best goals in recent history.
Wilshere has a lot of flair. Gerrard is probably the only one that can slice a cross in the way he does from practically midfield.
The problem is they play 4-4-2 and don't have that ball winner type and are easily outplayed in the midfield. They surely need to play a 4-3-3 in the future, so that they aren't so outnumbered in the middle of the pitch. Italy had 4 in there and 2 players arent going to beat 4, they just aren't.
Overall I don't think this tournament is terrible for England in results. Before it started I had them lower on my rankings than I have them now and I think they got the right players some experience and confidence.
Joe Hart also needs to learn to distribute the ball better, the only real weakness in his game.
