Your womens team have just won 5 Euro championship finals on the trot Elber, so it wasn't really a surprise that they won again today mate. The important thing for us was to see our girls actually reach the final. That in itself is an achievement, and we appreciate the progress they have made over the last few years. Give them time and eventually they will whup Germany's arse
England 5-Croatia 1.
That was qualification with style. What a difference Capello has made to this team. I'm lost for words really. Simply to say, absolutely fu<king fantastic lads.
I love the way that Capello's using Lampard and Gerrard in England team. The only position that needs improvement is Johnson defense. The guy is great at attack but is not that good in defence. Though Lennon was so helpful in Croatia match.
Agbonlahor, Heskey, Rooney, Cole and Crouch have all been picked for the Qualifiers over Bent. Rooney is Rooney, Cole is reasonably on form and strong, Agbonlahor is fast and Crouch is tall. But I don't see Heskey offering the squad anything those 4 plus an in-form Bent don't.
Also, after seeing the Liverpool match first-hand, Carragher was left out of the squad.
Heskey is a team player, you can't see much of him in matches but he works really hard and causes big pressure on opponent defence. That actually provides better opportunities for Lampard, Gerrard and Rooney.
Green sent off. 1-0 to Ukraine now. England are playing 4-4-1 now with heskey in attack and Rooney on the right. That sucks. Heskey should have been subbed off instead of Lennon. I don't think Heskey can manage alone upfront. That's a toothless attack.
