Re: International Matches Discussion Thread
Happy England are in the finals. Started the game well, got on the front foot quickly and bossed the first half. Conceded a goal which was bad defending, but still in a good position at half time.
Barry was rubbish, made one great tackle on the edge of the area, and an interception in the box. Those were the only 2 good moments I can remember from him. Misplaced a lot of passes, gave the ball away. I think Milner or Lampard should have started instead (is Milner injured?). Barry has had some good games for Man City recently but was crap against Munich. He had a decent game against Wales, but based on the last year and a half before this season started he shouldn't have been in the team to begin with. He has had a decent start to the season but Capello shouldn't base it just on that. And if he is then Welbeck or Agbonlahor should have started ahead of Bent today.
Anyway nice cross by Walcott for the first goal, he spooned one horribly into the fans a little later but still one of his better performances.
I expect some fans and most of the papers will be moaning at England after making it to the finals, which doesn't help the team's morale at all.
