Francis Jeffers certainly will - probably the only one-cap wonder with a goal to his name. And it was also Wayne Rooney's international debut, an occasion which will history will record as far more significant than the scoreline.Originally Posted by chaminda_00

I'm looking forward to the WC draw on December 9th, should be fun.

But beating one of the top Internationals is something significant down here.Originally Posted by Scaly piscine
