England All The Way

  1. England All The Way

    England All The Way


    I haven’t seen many stories focusing just on international management so as a save to run alongside my Haverhill save I have decided to see if I can make England a dominant force in international football.


    Manager: Logan Rands
    Nationality: English
    Caps: 67 caps/ 12 Goals


    In a surprise appointment England have appointed a previous international Logan Rands as their new manager with the aim of making England a dominant force.
    Logan Rands is reported to be earning £79,000 per week.


    The English FA would like to welcome you to your new role and wish you every success with England.
    The board do not regard the European League Div. A as important and so will evaluate your performance based on results in other competitions.
    Your first game in charge will be against Croatia on 6th September 2018 (European International League Division A Group 4)


    Logan Rands has announced unlike previous England managers he will undertake to manage every aspect of the England setup including all youth sides to ensure we are bringing the best out of youth. In doing so Adrian Boothroyd (under 21), Keith Downing (under 20), and Paul Simpson (under 19) have been released from their duties but have been offered the chance to come back as assistants at each level although they have all turned the roles down.


    At a recent press conference Rands has stated he will not pick players based on reputation but on merit based on their domestic form. This will mean he will attend as many games as possible to find players previously overlooked to represent their country at all levels.


    Rands has brought his own tactics to the England set up and he has gone for a 4231-wide and 424-wide.

  3. Very in depth squad list - intrigued to see whether you favour youth or slowly ease out the older players. Regardless, good luck and up the Three Lions!

    To be fair I wasn’t sure how much detail to go into, is it too detailed?

    my aim is to use youth and develop them through the teams but at the same time I want to be successful in all competitions be it first team or youth so it will be a tough balancing act.

    In what was billed as a close encounter, Holland Under 20s were trounced 5-0 by England Under 20s at Polman Stadion. A brace from Josh Maja helped England Under 20s to victory.
    An error from Holland’s Gerard Gorre allowed advanced forward Josh Maja to score a well timed finish from close range. Wonderkid Phil Foden doubled England’s lead with a placed shot into the bottom corner on 18 minutes. Maja added his 2nd goal of the game with a close range finish into the bottom corner on 21 minutes. Goalkeeper Gerard Gorre compounded the misery for Holland on 40 minutes with an embarrassing own goal. The last goal of the game was an own goal from young centre-back Justen Kranthove; an incident which will undoubtedly have caused him some embarrassment.

    England Under 21s fans sang the praises of their heroes at Carrow Road as they watched their team run out 5-0 winners over Estonia Under 21s in their latest European U21 Championship Qualifying Group 9 fixture. The highlight of the game was undoubtedly a hat-trick from England Under 21s Dominic Solanke.
    Wonderkid Dominic Solanke got England off to a flyer by scoring a simple finish from close in on 3 minutes. Solanke added his 2nd goal of the game with a fine header from point-blank range on 4 minutes. Solanke added his 3rd goal of the game with a penalty placed into the bottom right corner on 16 minutes. Central defender Dael Fry then added to the lead with a powerful volley which took a deflection before finding the net on 56 minutes. Winger Callum Hudson-Odoi completed the rout with a curling shot into the top corner from 23 metres on 65 minutes.

    Croatia featured a number of exceptionally quick players and used them to full effect as they ran out winners on a fine summer’s evening at Wembley. A brace from Andrej Kramaric helped Croatia to victory.
    An error from England’s Eric Dier allowed advanced forward Andrej Kramaric to score a close range effort. England and Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson then equalised for England in the 35th minute with a powerful shot into the bottom corner from 20 metres. Kramaric scored what proved to be the winner on 52 minutes with a placed shot.

    Jack Grealish has thanked Logan Rands for handing him his England debut and told of his delight at earning his first cap. The Aston Villa attacking midfielder added that he hoped he could continue to impress for his club and keep doing well so that Rands will pick him in his next England squad.


    It had been a long time coming but Jordan Henderson finally scored his first international goal against Croatia. This was the 28 year-old’s 45th cap for England and the defensive midfielder will no doubt be hoping he won’t have to wait as long for his next goal.

    England Under 19s taught Portugal Under 19s a lesson at Portman Road this afternoon.
    Advanced forward Arvin Appiah gave England the lead with a close range volley in the 23rd minute. In a low-key affair, quality was in short supply with the vast majority of shots failing to even hit the target.

    Logan Rands:
    A good start to my tenure as England manager other than the first team losing but with Spain coming up next we can pick things up and do well. Dominic Solanke and Josh Maja impressed with their performances and are pushing for places in the first team.

    Spain featured a number of exceptionally quick players but they were unable to secure victory, instead sharing the spoils on a wet evening at Santiago Bernabeu.
    Explosive full-back Kyle Walker got England off to a flyer by scoring a placed shot into the bottom corner on 7 minutes. It was a sensational effort from Walker and captured the attention of fans and pundits alike. Cultured winger Suso equalised for Spain after 71 minutes with a close range volley.

Harper was deservedly pleased with the strike and it was easily one of the highlights of the match. Maja scored with a close range finish into the bottom corner in the 31st minute to extend the lead further. England Under 20s Captain Reece Oxford completed the rout with a fine header from point-blank range on 55 minutes.

  8. Looking good so far! Nice to see the amount of detail in this, especially with including the lower age groups.

    Squad's look strong, though might I suggest a look at Ben Godfrey at Norwich for the U21's?

    Also, Max Broughton in the U18's is brilliant, I had him on a Bolton save and ended up using him in the starting 11 in my first season.

    Thank you for the feedback, I have added Ben Godfrey to the national pool as you have to add players as and when you find them. I am trying to keep an eye on all divisions and I do have scouts looking looking but they don’t suggest people very often.
    Max Broughton is playing for the U19s currently and is performing well.

  12. Interesting to see manager all age groups and how you do, but be hard for you to develop players as it down to AI to play them at club level to get enough games to improve.

    But good luck and some pictures will be good.

  13. England have dropped 1 place to 7th position in the latest World Rankings list.
    Belgium have moved up to first place in the rankings, up from 2nd.
    The most improved nation was Somoa who moved from 196th to 189th in the list.

    Injury worry for England
    Our preparations for the match’s against Ghana and Spain have been hit by the news that Jack Grealish has suffered a tight calf. Although not ideal, Grealish is only likely to be out for 2 days and, provided he suffers no further setbacks, could still feature at some point.

    Thanks for the feedback

    It is tough as I’m trying to pick based on domestic form but as the players are younger they don’t play as much so looking at their stats for the youth team as much as possible. I’m also finding I have to add players manually to the national pool when they are youngsters as my scouts don’t seem to suggest them.

    An impressive start to the international period with wins all round whilst the Under 21s and Under 19s have both qualified from their groups with a game in hand. I can’t take all the credit for the Under 21s as most of the qualifying was done before I joined but still a good result.

    Logan Rands:
    Another good set of international games with the only let down being the draw with Spain when we came so close to winning. We are now battling relegation in the European International League so the next game against Croatia is a must win game. There are a few youngsters who are pushing for a full cap and I will be keeping an eye on them but I also don’t want to deplete the youth squads of their best players.

    Dylan Parker, Dominic Revan and Danny Loader have been added to the squad.


    Our preparations for the European U20 Elite League Match against Switzerland U20s have been hit by the news that Jack Clarke has suffered a tight groin. Although not ideal, Clarke is only likely to be out for 3 days and, provided he suffers no further setbacks, could still feature at some point. Kaylen Hinds has also suffered a tight hamstring and will be out for 2 days.


    Our preparations for the friendly match against Slovakia Under 19s have been hit by the news that Ethan Laird has suffered a pulled thigh. Although not ideal, Laird is only likely to be out for 8 days and, provided he suffers no further setbacks, could still feature at some point. Morgan Gibbs-White has also suffered a tight thigh and will be out for 2 days.


    Daniel Grimshaw and Callum Hudson-Odoi have withdrawn from the England Under 21 squad due to injury. Andrew Fisher and Eberechi Eve have been called up as replacements.


    Logan Rands:
    These squads have probably been the hardest to pick as the rules for the under 21s changed due to the match being a friendly and I didn’t want to raid the U20s considering they have a competitive match in the Elite League. Hopefully it’s a chance for others that I may have overlooked to step up to the plate and impress.

    A highly polished performance from the England Under 20s players saw their team run out 3-1 winners over Switzerland Under 20s at Bet365 Stadium.
    Centre-back Tanju Schuler suffered the ignominy of scoring an own goal in the 31st minute.

Advanced forward Kaylen Hinds doubled England’s lead with a mighty header from within the six-yard box on 72 minutes. Midfielder Moreno Krahenbuhl gave the Switzerland fans a glimmer of hope after 81 minutes with a fierce shot. An error from Switzerland’s Tanju Schuler allowed inside forward Dwight McNeil to score a deflected effort from close to goal.

    England had no answer to Croatia’s prowess from dead-ball situations as Croatia scored all their goals from set-pieces on a mild autumnal evening at Maksimir.
    An error from England’s Joe Gomez allowed inside forward Marko Pjaca to score a good volley from close range. England’s equaliser came through Marcus Rashford as he seized on Mateo Kovacic’s mistake to score a close range volley into the top corner. Pjaca then added his 2nd goal of the game with a header on 46 minutes. England’s equaliser came through Harry Kane as he seized on Ivan Strinic’s mistake to score a close range volley into the top corner.

    England have been relegated from the European International League


    Logan Rands:
    Delighted with the performance of the Under 20s as they stay on course to win the Elite league. However not so happy to be relegated from the European International League but with a lot of changes to the team it was always going to take time for us to gel together. With the upcoming Friendly it is a chance for the fringe players to impress.

    England enjoyed near total domination over a distinctly average Slovakia side at City Arena – Stadion Antona Malatinskeho this afternoon.
    Mezzala Ross Barkley gave England the lead with a well-struck effort into the top corner from 21 metresin the 63rd minute. Attacking midfielder Jack Grealish completed the scoring for England with a placed shot from close range on 65 minutes.
    Man of the Match England’s Ross Barkley.


    Newly-capped England Left Back Ben Chilwell has revealed how proud he is to make his first appearance for his country. In an emotional interview with FourFourTwo, Chilwell also acknowledged England boss Logan Rands for having faith in his ability to make the step up to international level.
    The other players to make their international debut for England against Slovakia were Dean Henderson and Conor Coady.


    Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish has revealed his joy at collecting his first goal for England. The 23 year old attacking midfielder told journalists that it was a great feeling to score for your country and he couldn’t wait to pull on an England shirt again.


    Logan Rands:
    A good set of match’s against Slovakia at all levels. The players that hadn’t featured before really stepped up to the plate and are definitely pushing to keep their places. One player that really caught the eye was Danny Loader for the Under 19s. With 3-4 months before our next games plenty of players have time to impress domestically for a call up.

    Starting XI: Jordan Pickford, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Joe Gomez, Luke Shaw, Jordan Henderson, Eric Dier, Raheem Sterling, Dele Alli, Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane.
    Substitutes: Jack Grealish, James Ward-Prowse, Ross Barkley, Jesse Lingard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Harry Maguire.

    Group matches will start on 4th September 2019.


    Ruben Loftus-Cheeks lack of appearances for Chelsea means an England call-up remains unlikely for the time being according to Skysports.com. The 23 year old attacking midfielder’s lack of appearances for Chelsea will have done nothing to convince Rands that Loftus-Cheek deserves to retain his place.


    Callum Wilson’s impressive form for Bournemouth should earn him a return to the England squad, according to Skysports. The 26 year old striker’s superb performances for Bournemouth have not gone unnoticed by the English media and Wilson looks certain to win a recall. Wilson has been in fair form for Bournemouth this season, hitting the target with 43 of his Shots, and scoring 12 goals in 25 appearances.


    Adam Lallana’s form for Liverpool should see him come into the reckoning for an England call-up, according to Maxifoot. England manager Logan Rands will surely not have failed to be impressed by the performances the 30 year old attacking midfielder has been turning in for the Reds. Lallana has caught the eye for Liverpool this season, winning 13 tackles and recording a 75% pass completion ratio in 18 appearances.


    Liverpool have been rocked by the news that ball-playing defender Joe Gomez could be out for the rest of the season after sustaining damaged cruciate ligaments during their match against Man City. Sources inside the club revealed that the 21 year-old Central Defender now faces the misery of being sidelined for at least 8 months. Gomez had played well for Liverpool this season, recording 18 key tackles and winning 113 tackles overall in 32 appearances.


    Logan Rands will name his squad for for England Under 20s European Elite League clash against Germany Under 20s and Italy Under 20s on 15th March, but he faces an anxious wait for the latest medical bulletins. Rhian Brewster and Reiss Nelson will definitely miss out through injury while doubts remain over the fitness of Lloyd Kelly and Reece Oxford. England Under 20s will also be without the services of Ben Wilmot who is Suspended. There is some good news however with Phil Foden reportedly fit to play after shaking off a recent injury.


    Logan Rands will face a couple of selection problems when he names his England squad to face Iceland and Kosovo on 15th March. Joe Gomez will definitely miss out through injury although there are no further injury worries to report at this stage. There is some good news however with Kyle Walker reportedly fit to play after shaking off a recent injury.


    Logan Rands will be faced with a selection headache on 15th March when he comes to select his England Under 21s squad to face Sweden Under 21s and Republic of Ireland Under 21s. Ben Godfrey, Ben Wilmot and Reiss Nelson will definitely miss out through injury while doubts remain over the fitness of Josh Earl, Lloyd Kelly and Reece Oxford. There is some good news however with Phil Foden reportedly fit to play after shaking off a recent injury.

    Logan Rands:
    A fantastic first set of fixtures with all team winning. The Under 20s winning the Elite League was a brilliant achievement. England’s First Qualifying win was amazing to watch and the under 19s warmed up for their 2nd Qualifying Round with another good win. As a nation we are showing we do have the young players coming through the ranks and I’m hopeful we can keep winning tournaments at all levels.

    England had their midfield to thank on a mild spring evening at Wembley as they showed their strikers how to finish. A brace from Marcus Rashford helped England to victory.
    Advanced forward Marcus Rashford gave England the lead with a good header from just inside the six-yard box in the 34th minute. Mezzala Ross Barkley doubled England’s lead with a screamer from 21 metres on 37 minutes. Barkley then added his 2nd goal of the game with a thumping free kick from 26 metres on 42 minutes. Rashford added his 2nd goal of the game with a volley from within the six-yard box on 59 minutes. Alli then increased England’s advantage further with a curling shot into the bottom corner from 24 metres on 60 minutes. World-class winger Raheem Sterling competed the rout with an incisive finish into the bottom left corner from 18 metres on 64 minutes. It was a sensational effort from Sterling and captured the attention of fans and pundits alike. England’s Sterling was forced off with a tight Achilles in the 70th minute whilst attempting a sprint.

    Ireland Under 21s defeat against England Under 21s on a mild spring evening at King Power Stadium saw Ireland feature a number of debutants in the starting lineup.
    Advanced playmaker Joe Willock gave England the lead with a tidy finish into the bottom right corner from 14 metres in the 14th minute. Winger Callum Hudson-Odoi doubled England’s lead with a thunderous free kick from 25 metres on 40 minutes. Wilks scored with a good header from just inside the six-yard box in the 55th minute to extend the lead further. England’s Broughton was forced off with pulled ankle ligaments in the 71st minute following an attempted tackle on Michael Obafemi. Mason Mount then rather innocuously appeared to suffer a broken ankle in the 83rd minute. Young full-back Canice Carroll pulled one back for Ireland after 94 minutes with a placed shot into the bottom corner. Central defender Jacob Bedeau completed the rout with a close range finish into the bottom corner on 95 minutes.

    Logan Rands:
    A very good set of international games with the first team making sure they start their Qualifying the right way by taking maximum points in both their games. The Under 19s got their 2nd Qualifying Round off to the perfect start and have two more games before they are released back to their clubs. The Under 20s finished the Elite League off unbeaten and were deserving winners whilst also giving England their first trophy under my management. The Under 21s continued warming up for their European Championships with another win and are showing good form. The squad is starting to take shape and my only tough decision is whether any younger players deserve to get into the final squad.
    The big disappointment is Mason Mount suffering a broken Ankle and he may not be fit enough to take part in the European Championship which is heart breaking for him.

    England Under 20s have qualified from group A in the U20 World Cup
    The European team will be delighted to be able to relax a little, having qualified with a game in hand from Group A.


    England have announced the 23 man squad for the U21 European Championships.
    The five players missing out from the preliminary squad are;
    Josh Maja (Injured), Jacob Bedeau, Josh Tymon, Mitch Clarke and Andrew Fisher.
    Logan Rands:
    Always a tough process to narrow a squad down and Josh Maja’s injury is a blow but I believe in the squad selected. With two warm up games before the competition starts on the 16th June 2019 the squad has plenty of time to gel before we get into the group games.

    On a hot summer’s evening at Henryk Reyman City Stadium, France Under 20s Dan-Axel Zagadou lived the dream of many a supporter as he lifted the U20 World Cup after England Under 20s 0-2 penalty loss to France Under 20s.
    Defensive midfielder Jean-Clair Todibo gave France the lead with a good header from just inside the six-yard box in the 53rd minute. The decision to disallow an 85th minute England goal proved most controversial amongst the team’s supporters. With France already beginning to celebrate, advanced forward Ben Brereton then scored a penalty placed into the bottom left corner in injury time to snatch the equaliser for England. Better late than never for England and the fans were clearly delighted with Brereton’s impact.
    In the shootout that followed it was left to Todibo to keep a cool head and smash home the winning penalty for France.
    Man of the Match France’s Jean-Clair Todibo


    Dwight McNeil has spoken of his disappointment at missing from the penalty spot during England U20s 0-2 U20 World Cup final penalty loss against France U20s, but insists he would take another one.
    McNeil told the media that he was determined to put the decisive shootout miss behind him and was confident he could step up and take one again if needed.


    Ben Brereton has won the Under 20 World Cup Golden Ball for his performances for England Under 20s. 20 Year Old Brereton put in a string of amazing performances, scoring 10 goals in 7 games with an average rating of 8.37
    Johnathon Panzo and Emile Smith Rowe ensured it was a England Under 20s clean sweep as they took second and third place respectively.
    It’s testament to the incredible work being done at England Under 20s that all three award winners belong to the club.


    Ben Brereton has won the Under 20 World Cup Golden Shoe for his performances with England Under 20s.
    Brereton has been the top striker in the Under 20 World Cup this season, scoring 10 goals.
    Moise Kean (Italy) finished level with Gabriel Kyeremateng (Ghana) but claimed the runner-up spot by virtue of having the least playing time.


    Syria U20s were today announced as the winners of the Under 20 World Cup Fair Play award. The award was given by football’s world governing body.
    The award is won by the team with the least yellow and red cards, where a red card is taken to be the equivalent of three yellow cards.
    Closely following winner Syria U20s, were England U20s in second place and in third place Poland U20s.


    Logan Rands:
    England continued their fantastic qualifying campaign with another win which gives us a very good chance of qualifying for European Championships.
    England Under 19s were amazing in the first of two Warm Up games and are looking ready for their European Championships.
    England Under 20s did brilliantly to get to the final of the World Cup and were unlucky to only take runners up medals away but the lads can be extremely pleased with their performances. Ben Brereton showed what a talent he is to the world and Blackburn are very lucky to have him. A clean sweep in the Golden Ball awards was an amazing achievement and the lads are now preparing to defend their Elite League title.
    Next up is the Under 21s European Championships in which I have high hopes of doing well and this is quickly followed by the Under 19s European Championships where again we have high hopes. A very busy time for England on all levels.

    Logan Rands:
    The Under 19s did very well in their final warm up game and are looking strong.
    The Under 21s had a very disappointing tournament after impressing in qualifying and their warm up games. France seem to be our bogey team at all levels although we didn’t play as we know we can.
    The Under 19s are up next with their European U19 Championship and again we have high hopes.
