The player I want to see is Franck Ribery of France, who is like Craig Bellamy-meets-Aaron Lennon.
Clearly, the Owen-Crouch-Rooney-Walcott quartet is the most bizarre set of strikers England have ever taken to a major tournament.
Theo Walcott is a boy who has not played for Arsenal yet. But Sven has watched him in training. In training !
Frank Lampard says Steve is a good coach and Steve says he is the proudest man in England tonight.
Sadly, Sven’s England will never be a Saab or a Mercedes. On a good night it will be Ford Escort Mk 7 and on a bad night it will be a rusty old Vauxhall Cavalier.
TONIGHT’S TEAM IS Robinson; Neville, Ferdinand, Terry, Bridge; Beckham, Gerrard, Carrick, Joe Cole; Rooney, Darren Bent.
