I thought we did play defensively.
1-0 up at home with your opposition playing into a blizzard and minus their top player - I certainly hope that wasn't us going for the jugular ...
In what way was that midfield defensive? The fact that we only scored once doesn't make it negative, it's a symptom of the team not being set up properly in the first place.
Every good international side plays with defensive midfielders - we don't play with any and then still think it's not attacking enough.
