You can't expect them to be able to hold the ball if they're attacking with only 3-4 players.
Come on...the guy came in on short notice with his best player suspended and lots of injuries. I think he did a pretty damn good job considering.
Honestly, if England doesn't play the same style that won Chelsea the Champions League, they probably don't get out of their group.
They do need to change mentality and style at some point but they need talent to develop to play that style.
