Alan Shearer's reaction to England's dreadful display vs Slovenia is simply perfect

England international games are not exactly the most enthralling of affairs.

The break from the Premier League and other domestic divisions as a whole is pretty depressing, but when you chuck in 90 minutes of Gareth Southgate's men passing sideways, it makes the whole situation a lot worse.

The likes of Gary Cahill, Eric Dier and Jordan Henderson are not exactly renowned for their bravery going forward and against Slovenia at Wembley, they turned in an awfully conservative performance.

In fact, the entire match as a spectacle was pretty grim, with the game kicking off on a bad note due to the amount of empty seats present in the ground.

The only solace fans could take from the match was that Harry Kane's undeserved late winner secured progression to the World Cup.

However, if England are to compete with the very best like Brazil, Germany, France and Spain, they will have to make big changes.

At half-time, when the match was 0-0, Twitter was not a pretty place for a Three Lions player and Alan Shearer summed up the dismal display perfectly.

The Newcastle United legend didn't even need to use any words, just his emoji keyboard, that's how bad things got at Wembley.

SHEARER'S TIMELY REACTION

Yep, that's exactly what it was, a complete snooze fest.

Had it not been for the occasional burst from Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford, fans inside the stadium may have actually fallen asleep.

WHY DID WALKER TAKE A FREE-KICK?

One moment that summed up the circus that is the England team was when Kyle Walker stepped up to take a free-kick.

The Manchester City right-back is anything but an expert in the field and with the likes of Harry Kane waiting to take, no one could really believe their eyes.

He duly ballooned it over. Bring on the summer and more disappointment in Russia.
