Three Lions flop under tournament pressure...
Rooney - "The miracle man for Manchester United". I feel sorry for him. Almost all the pressure are on him. He has been injured for a long time now, and not ready for the tournament yet.
Its not just Rooney the whole team was very bad...It felt like they dont even hold together.
but the people playing around him. England as a team is mediocre at best. They can't feed the ball to Rooney and Lampard and Gerrard are neutralizing each other in the middle of the park. Not to forget Carragher who showed us the limits of his abilities. The man can't pass. If Rio ferdinand was fit, England would have much better distribution from the back since he likes to help the midfielders during offensives. Carragher stays stuck at the back. Lennon is not national team material nor is Wright Phillips it seems. Let's hope Lampard is dropped, Heskey is moved and replaced by Defoe and Gerrard plays just behind Rooney while Joe Cole moves to the left wing. Seriously, that's the only way they can win. Capello looks irritated all the time, well, it's probably partly his fault too if the team is under-performing. He better start acting and correct his own mistakes.
I dont understand why Capello didnt put Joe Cole in USA and Algeria's matches, he is a good player and can help a lot.
