    Why are they wittering about hand-bvall. Good decision. Practically hugging him like a long-lost lover.

As much as I have doubts over how well Rooney will play, there is still no way I'd start Barkley ahead of him.
    Nah Barkley's phenomenal.

    Hart

    Johnson
    Cahill
    Jagielka
    Baines

    Gerrard
    Henderson

    Sterling
    Rooney
    Wellbeck

    Sturridge

    That's the team. Sterling in the middle, Rooney out wide

    So 2 DM screening the back 4 and a lone striker? Looks defensive. Can't see Italy pushing the game. Hope it's better than some of the dour England vs Italy games of the past.

    It's just a bog standard 4-2-3-1. And Rooney and Wellbeck could play as strikers as well, so it's not that defensive.

    Gotcha. Top 4 with some swapping and movement then.

    Heh, Uruguay in proper trouble, don't look at all likely to grab a second, let alone winning it.

    Have serious doubts Suarez will be fit enough for England if they didn't bring him on today.

    This Arsenal lad probably not good enough to be in their squad next season but surely they would be better off loaning him to another Prem side rather than abroad to see if he can adapt to play in England.

    Not saying anything derogatory about Uruguay until England have played as we are just as likely to play crap.
