Three Lions!

Three Lions!

Manchester United were well represented at Wembley last night.

Three of our current squad were selected by Fabio Capello to start in the clash with Wales that England hoped would propel them towards qualification for the finals next summer.

Chris Smalling retained his place at right back, winning his second cap, whilst Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young were part of the attack Capello hoped would bring the three points to England.

As it turned out, a solitary goal by Ashley Young was enough to give England the three points. Young, finding himself in the box, adjacent to the front post, produced a great finish to a Downing cross to allow England to deflate the Welsh cause.

Although Rooney looked dangerous, his first touch let him down on numerous occasions as Wales persisted with a plan to get as many men behind the ball to frustrate England. Wayne will certainly have better nights in the three lion`s shirt.

Smalling, as was the case on his debut, gave an assured performance defending resolutely and getting forward whenever the opportunity arose. For someone who prefers playing as a centre back, Smalling could well be carving out a career as first choice right-back for club and country!

Smalling is looking so good at RB that Speed put Bale RM because he knew he wouldn't get anywhere on the left. :P I never actually watched the game myself and from what I heard about it I'm kind of glad I didn't. From what I understand the midfield was abysmal and Capello said he played Lampard to provide Rooney with service whilst Barry was supposed to act as the defensive cover. Lampard proved he should never start in an England shirt again by not doing his job. He provided Rooney with minimal service and just like South Africa, Rooney got frustrated and dropped deep to get it instead leaving England without a striker up top. Well done Young, his come on leaps and bounds since joining.

I think Capello needs to realise that Rooney isn't an out and out striker and can never play at the tip of any attack, especially when he's getting no service. If he plays up top on his own more often than not he will drop deep to get the ball, that's just the player Rooney is. Rooney has to play as the CF, be involved with the build-up play as well as finish it off and be the heartbeat of the team, the player who drives the side forward.

TheFamousNo7, U slate Lampard because U believe he didn't provide the kind of passes that that would make Rooney score goals and still believe the Manager is wrong for using him as a top striker because he strives in dropping deep to initiate attacks and finish them up. I think U should just be bold enough to say Wayne and the lads had a bad game.

Misterlecturer, bad game? Isn't that just a normal game for England? It happens too often to be considered just a bad game. There's some serious issues with the England squad and it's management.

That is just the simple truth. As much as I support the England National Team cos of my connection with the Premiership. They play as if they are not motivated. I think they need a manager that would make them play with flair and with the current crop of players like Wilshere, Cleverly and McEachran in their midfield, they have a bright future.
