Missing Rooney

Missing Rooney

In all honesty it was a lackluster performance by England on Tuesday evening, especially when it came to the finishing department.

Once again England had to rely on the Chelsea midfielder, Frank Lampard, to find the net with the likes of Defoe, Sturridge and Welbeck not quite looking to be up to the task.

Therefore it is no surprise that Roy Hodgson reflected on the availability of the injured Wayne Rooney with the England boss remarking,

"The sooner Wayne comes back into our fold the better. We are short of experienced, quality front players in England."

We certainly were on Tuesday night and I have to say we missed a little of the bedevilment that Rooney brings to the game.

Don't think England missed Rooney, I'd actually infer that Rooney is detrimental to the England squad. He just can't perform on the international stage and his international teammates can't give him the sevice he needs to perform, thus him always dropping too deep out of position when playing for England and being ineffective. I'd also say the reason why England were so naff against the Ukraine is because our standard of competitive football is about that level, we're not in the same bracket as France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Spain and maybe even Uruguay no matter how much we're told otherwise by the media. I'm of the opinion that Lampard, despite finding the net, should be one of the first names to be dropped. He was awful the whole night. In a game in which England were atleast trying to dictate play, dominate possession and attempt intricate pass and move play, Lampard was non-existent par the odd sideways pass. The last one back in position to defend, the only one not getting involved in attacking play, yet the first one to grab the limelight of scoring a penalty which ultimately masked what was a poor performance.
