A Sublime Goal!

As England rocked last night, against the Swedes, having seen a lead over-turned, it took a moment of genius from Danny Welbeck to get us back on course.

A sublime back-heel put England level and gave them the platform to move forward and grab the win that should ensure a quarter-final place.

After the match, Theo Walcott, who bagged the winner with another goal worthy of a distinction, had this t say about Danny`s goal, commenting,

"Danny has got that quality in his locker and I`m sure there will be a lot to come from him."

"If people haven`t heard about Danny in this tournament, they will know about him now."

"It had everything that goal. The chance was massive and Danny made it look easy."

"It was class, probably one if the best goals at this tournament - and I`m not saying that because he`s my friend."

The strange thing is, after that sublime goal, it may well be Danny that makes way for the returning, from suspension, Wayne Rooney.

He did very well to get enough on it but stop with the exaggerating.

Quality finish by Welbeck, clever, intelligent and improvised finish which required a lot of technical skill. It wasn't his goal that changed the game, it was the introduction of Walcott. Walcott has earned his place in the starting 11 over Milner, who I think has been par so far. That said, I don't think it should be Welbeck who loses his place in the team for Rooney but Young, who has also been poor and even in a deeper LM role rather than an isolate CAM role he still struggled to make an impact and get involved. Welbeck is capable of playing in wide positions It's just a shame that I reckon Hodgson will ignore his and Walcotts performances and play it safe with Milner and Young again but with Carroll and Rooney up top.

Do you think Walcott would cover Johnson the way Milner does mate?

Cover Johnson? Is that what his been doing? Seems like his been doing feck all to me and if he is covering Johnson he's doing ****** job at it, that right flank is constantly being exploited and left wide open. In fairness to Milner he's being played out of position and England would perhaps be better served with Gerrard wide right and Milner in the middle.

Everything decent that England did came down the right, including Milner's great cross that Wellbeck made a balls of. Yes he has been covering well for Johnson, something that Milner will always give is discipline to his role despite his shortcomings in a creative sense, something that was lacking on England's left last night, with no threat coming from that side at all.

Milner has made one great cross so far Bluedub in 2 games. All Englands best stuff have come from the right from Gerrard, Johnson and Walcott, not Milner. The only impact Milner has had thus far is giving away the freekick the Swedish scored their 2nd goal from. Whilst the left side was quiet offensively, it was most certainly solid defensively. The right hand side was the complete opposite, great offensively but poor defensively whereby despite Milner's supposed covering it was repeatedly exploited. To be honest for the next game, like i've said before, both wingers Milner and Young need to be benched.

Or, like I've said before, try Gerrard out wide seeing as that's where his been most effective this tournament with 2 fantastic crosses and assists with Milner in his preferred CM role and with only Young being benched.

You're watching something different to me so Famous. I'm seeing a player playing a very disciplined role and doing it well. Much like he did for City in that role in the early part of the season, his performance at Old Trafford being one of his best in that position, I'm sure you remember that one.

Shame his a shadow of that player during the Euros. Despite his best efforts to cover Johson at RB his offered very little both defensively, with all the danger coming from the right hand side and him being at fault for the foul which lead to the Swedes 2nd goal, and offensively, one good cross over 2 games and the only threat coming from Johnson, Walcott and Gerrard.

I've just had a look at the chalkboards to check where the threat is coming from, most of Sweden's attacks came down England's left, as I suspected.

Yet no goals were conceded from the left. However, 1 goal conceded from a whipped in ball from deep right hand side where Milner committed the foul. No to mention the times Johson was exploited (well recovered from a brilliant slide tackle in fairness to him).
