Before Englands game against USA I predicted a draw.
What I didn’t predict was a howler from Robert Green.
Scottish goalkepers have been critised and laughed at,now the joke is on England.
Remember back in 2002 World Cup Final when David Seaman got chipped by Brazils Ronaldinio from 2 miles, it could have been 3 miles!
Remember in 2008 the European qualifier when Croatias Niko Kranjcars shot squirmed past Scott Carson.
There has been others but Robert Greens gaff beats them all,he could have thrown his cap on it, a blind man could have saved it.You expect that kind of clanger when watching your local pub team on a Sunday.
The USA were everything I expected, organised,disciplined and focussed.
Pick of the Engalnd side for me was Steven Gerrard, he led by example, grabbed the opener with a teriffic finish and put in several good challenges.
Glen Johnson attempted to get forward at every opportunity and put in some lovely crosses.
Emile Heskey led the line brilliantly ,won the ball in the air , his link up play was good , he laid Gerrards goal on a plate,and he should have scored.
Biggest disappointments were Ashley Cole, failed to influence the game the way he does at club level, very seldom went forward, having Millner then Wright Phillips in front of him didn’t help.
Lampard failed to dictate play , he was anonymous most of the game.
Rooney never got a kick in the first half of the game. In his defence he didn’t get enough of the ball. The longer the game went on he got deeper.
Overall I thought a draw was a fair result.
Next up Algeria, can England beat them? Of course they can, but the big guns must perform.
The big Question is will Green start, I reckon he will.
What do you think…….
