England’s frustrating campaign continued as they managed a 0-0 draw against Slovenia, sealing top spot in Group C.

Despite boasting top talents like Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham, and Phil Foden, Gareth Southgate’s side struggled against Slovenia.

The match saw England dominate possession but fail to capitalize on their chances.

Declan Rice was a standout performer, but his efforts couldn’t cover for the team’s overall performance.

Southgate’s experiment with Trent Alexander-Arnold in midfield didn’t workout as planned, and Conor Gallagher, who started in his place, was subbed off at halftime after a poor performance.

Meanwhile, Slovenia, already eliminated from the tournament, were strong.

The second half saw some improvement, with England dictating play but still unable to break through.

Kane and Foden had shots on target, but Slovenian goalkeeper Jan Oblak remained untroubled.

Luckily, with the draw, England avoids facing heavyweights like Germany, France, and Spain.
