England lacks great technical players. English football is built on power and hard work while playing at a very fast pace. You don't develop technical players focusing on what they do. Their inability to hold the ball against Italy was embarrassing and it isn't like Italy are some great pressing side that give you no time on the ball.
Germany went through a period where they stressed pace and power over technique and their football suffered as a result. But they realized their error and changed their development approach quite a bit and the generation they have now speaks for the results.
England can do the same thing but I have my doubts whether they ever will as their mentality is different IMO.
