The Three Lions beat Turkey 2-1 on Sunday evening in the first of their final Euro 2016 warm-up fixtures.
Harry Kane opened the scoring after barely three minutes, and despite an equaliser from the visitors and the Tottenham Hotspur striker missing a penalty, Jamie Vardy won the game for the Three Lions in the second half.
All in all, it was a mixed performance from Roy Hodgson's side, with plenty of reasons for optimism alongside one or two causes for concern with the tournament kick-off just weeks away.
The biggest worry for England supporters was at the back, where a defence consisting of Kyle Walker, John Stones, Gary Cahill, and Danny Rose often failed to deal convincingly with the visiting attack.
Turkey's equaliser was a hugely poor goal to concede, and the performances at the back - both as individuals and as a collective unit - need to improve drastically before England face a higher calibre of opposition n France.
Stones and Cahill both looked like players who have endured far from successful club seasons, whilst Walker and Rose were often exposed and put in performances characterised by often shaky positional play.
During and after the match, numerous pundits and ex-players expressed their anxiety on Twitter about the capabilities of England's backline to stand up to the test next month.
After only five minutes, former England hero Gary Lineker had begun to see a pattern emerging in the play.
The first 5 minutes shows what we could see from this England team. Exciting going forward, nervous at the back.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) May 22, 2016
His sentiments were echoed by other former stars including ex-England strikers Stan Collymore and Rodney Marsh.
The defence is gonna be our weak point and that was exposed badly by........Turkey!— Jason Victor Cundy (@jasoncundy05) May 22, 2016
Good defending Walker to stop a certain equaliser!! Get the feeling we not going to be keeping many clean sheets at the euros!!— Neil Mellor (@NeilMellor33) May 22, 2016
Collymore then went on to point out something which might be key in tightening England's defence, suggesting that Tottenham star Eric Dier's presence in the holding role to protect the back four could be vital in France.
