    I think we'll play better against decent oppo that doesn't have the whole team playing in defence. Also I haven't seen a better defence in the tournament.

    I don't think that would work - his crossing is far too important.

    The thing to remember is, England won't come across any other sides who are seemingly only set up to not concede - against a team with a modicum of attacking intention and the likes of Owen come into the game far more.

    Be interesting to see how they'd do against teams that play so deep and 1 man on his own up front.

    Find out later on this afternoon, Côte d'Ivoire were refreshingly attacking against Argentina.

    Given that they went through qualifying with 10 wins, 2 draws and 0 losses in a group with Finland, Macedonia, Armenia and Andorra, probably a fair bit.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    Robben aside they were pretty workman-like. A young side though, Marco has gone on record as saying he's building for the Euro's and the next WC. Having a Wesley in ones side is always a bonus.

    Good of you to miss out Romania and the Czech Republic.

    The likes of Andorra don't have the ability to play so defensively and be so hard to break down though.

    The point was to find the defensive sides of the group. Czechs can't exactly be called that. (Romania were a bit dreary when we played them a couple of years back, tho...)

    Time to get some proper commentators in for these England games.

    "Shaka Hislop kicks the ball downfield and right into the path of Paul Robinson, who collects easily. That's probably Trinidad and Tobago's most accurate shot on goal today."

    This is after John Terry saved England from being 1-0 down at the half by a sensational bit of defending. The commentator only deemed it fitting not to be biased heavily toward England after Crouch netted in the 82nd. In his relief he unleashed a barrage of compliments upon the Soc(c)a Warriors.

    It's really unfortunate that these people are allowed into the commentary booth at this level of the sport.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Against a team rated about 40 places ahead of us, you really expect much more?

    Just a shame England and Sweden hardly look capable of scoring against one of the lowest ranked teams in the tournament.

    EDIT: Some teams will never get any respect...

    Watched the Eng v T &T game live. Was almost to the point of giving up and going back to sleep at 5:30 AM (NZ time) when Peter Crouch got his header !! What a great goal.
    Gerrard's was even better IMO.

    But the number of times England had opportunity to score but fluffed was unbelievably very very high !! Particularly Lampard and Crouch.

    That goal really goes down to Crouch losing his marker though (Dennis "Tall Man" Lawrence... who actually more lost himself).
