Re: International Matches Discussion Thread
Downing's always been poor for England for me, but he's still a very good player, who had a great season at Villa, and has looked the part for us. And at least he's not exactly part of the group of proven failures who play game in game out at regular tournements, he's one of few older England players who I think can turn his performances for the national siide around.
Much like MMN, don't like the look of that central midfield, but the rest looks quite good.
And I'm delighted we didn't get Barry, I've seen slugs move quicker.
