    Hmm that was a bit gormless from Zamora.

    Ireland 1-0 up on the night, well on their way to completing their formalities. Had the near-mandatory sitter missed by Robbie Keane.

    Own goal for sure. Let's just hope Barry doesn't claim England's 2000th goal.

    And finally a decent ball into the box (from Downing unsurprisingly given the personnel out there tonight), one-nil England.

    Agree with it being an og

    Yeah, OG, infinitely less embarrassing.

    Eeeuuw. Gareth Barry scoring the 2000th England goal. Like Saj Mahmood taking the 5000th test wicket.

    Sweden don't look very good either.

    Wonder how we'll contrive not to win this one.

    Defending isn't too clever off the dead ball situations so far.

    As usual Andy *****end only comments on Downing's crappish delivery and glosses over the one for the goal and the decent corner(s) he's hit. He's the exact opposite if it's someone he likes.

    Rodwell's header had exactly the same direction as Barry's. He was expecting the defender IMO.

    Downing MOM, so far for me. Not a bad performance apart from the finishing, nice to see new faces, Rodwell and Walker look good too.

    Christ. I think England's keeping jerseys are designed to make the opposition forwards feel nauseous or some such by the looks of it.

    It is good to see new faces and some not so new faces too, whether Capello will revert to type in Euro2012 is another matter. For me the players on merit in the middle of midfield would be Parker, Jones and Wilshere. Barry at a push. But it seems inevitable we'll get stuck with Lampard or Gerrard, if not both.

    Nah to Jones, not ready yet, gave away a terrible free-kick in the first-half. Makes some good runs, but shows little quality at the end. Don't mind one of Lump or Gerard playing, as long as they don't play both.

    On a slightly related note. Getting pretty sick of players like Zamora and Bent coming out and saying how they feel like they're "on trial" when they play for England as if it's somehow unreasonable. Surely that's the whole idea of games like these.

    Agreed, score a ****ing goal and stop whining, always been thus though, fringe players whinging.

    If they really wanted to make a statement then they should opt for the Gazza/Hoddle/Hotel Room approach, frankly.
