Watched the U-21s...
Kelly was great all game, scored a cracker. Henderson was very, very good too, good to see. Gardner impressed me in the cameo role he played, looks a real top notch talent. Sordell looks a great finisher, a big club will snap him up soon enough. Chamberlain was ESPN's MOTM. He was very good but went a bit quiet in the opening of the second half. i wouldn't say he is "extremely" selfish, he is a very direct player, and sometimes some of his efforts led to a goal, iirc a shot that went out for a corner where we scored from. he does frustrate at times though when he should make better decisions. when he has played for arsenal, he hasn't been direct enough and often opts to pass. top notch talent. this may be his 3rd or 4th u-21 motm in a row when he has played.
Even though Iceland's senior side isn't great, their U-21s were among the best last year, so don't underestimate the result. We have a lot of great players coming through the ranks.
I seen Andy Cole bigging up Suarez (city) and Akpom (arsenal) as future stars. Inclined to agree from what I've seen of both.
@Mikey, may watch that myself. See what BREK plays like and how Koscielny decides to boss. Fully deserves the start, interesting to see how he does alongside Sakho.
Kelly should play against Chelsea now. He's been better than Johnson thus far this season by far. I still have no idea how Johnson was picked over Micah for the England squad.
