Not that you need telling, but England are having a bit of a tough time of it at the moment. A 0-0 draw against Slovenia will do little to quell the negativity.

The result keeps England top of Group F, two points above Lithuania, but the performance was simply another example of how poor the side has become.

Next England manager whether Southgate,Howe or someone else needs to have job long term at least 6/8 years to build identity. None at moment

Remember the days of Alan Shearer, Michael Owen and David Beckham? Remember the days of Wayne Rooney?

3 – England mustered just 3 shots on target v Slovenia; their lowest in a competitive game since v Costa Rica at World Cup 2014 (1). Timid.

So fed up with England beating teams like Malta then failing as soon as they face a big footballing nation like Slovenia or Iceland #SLOENG

No blame was attached to Joe Hart, though.

Well Done ….Super Joey Hart
England's England's No 1👏👏👏👏👏

And Boring James Milner was happy.

I've got to say, Slovenia vs. England was a fantastic game of football. What a belter, it had everything.

And we’re never short of a great pun when England show how dismal they are.

Slovenia 0-0 England, a Bonnie Tyler of a match.
Nothing I can say, totally clips of the Hart.

But, it could have been worse. Scotland had a torrid time in Slovakia for example, losing 3-0.

Wow, Scotland. Wow. New low. That defence is an utter shambles.

A place at the 2018 World Cup looks a long way off right now.

Very proud of Scotland for boycotting the Russian World Cup.

Is Gordon Strachan the man for the job?

Loud boos from the Scotland support who opted to remain. If this isn't the end of another manager, it should be.

Only country to leave a 40 goal striker on the bench AND leave a £12m player sitting in the hoose #Scotland absolutely mind boggling 🙄

Meanwhile Germany made sure it was a winless night for the home nations, beating Northern Ireland 2-0.

Northern Ireland fans were in fine voice before the game, along with the German fans. Lovely scenes.

German and Northern Ireland fans partying inside the ground together. As it should be. Love it. #gawa #germany

But it wasn’t long before Germany did what they do best.

Goal, Germany! Julian Draxler opens the scoring from the edge of the area!
Germany 1-0 Northern Ireland

Here’s a weird picture of Sami Khedeira, who made it 2-0.

SAMI KHEDIRA!! It's 2-0 after 16 minutes! #DieMannschaft #GERNIR

Germany’s social media team wanted a third, but were denied.

#DieMannschaft are knock, knock, knocking on @NorthernIreland's door. A third goal will surely put this game to bed! #GERNIR #WCQ

Northern Ireland’s attitude after the defeat was commendable.

We're still singing 💚🔥 #DareToDream #GAWA #GERNIR

Respect to our boys who've played their hearts out! We've lost but once again no one compares when it comes to spirit! 💚 #GAWA #DareToDream

So there you go – not such a bad evening after all.
