England 0 – 2 Spain

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 David James has dropped the ball,
under fine pressure from no one at all.
And what should be noted by all England bosses,
is that Robert Green can actually catch crosses.
The first ten minutes couldn’t have been scarier
as we passed the ball round our own penalty area.
Was a harsh test and not our best game,
and of some of these errors we should be ashamed.
But there were a few little promising things,
such as little Wright-Phillips on fire on the wing.
It’s not awful to lose to the world’s number one
but the manner of defeat has made me glum.



Alright we spent the first 15mins ish trapped in our own half, but it wasn’t too bad, SWP looked very convincing out wide (shame he’s been banned for nothing in the Premiership.)

But the main cause for celebration is obviously that Rob Green played 45 minutes! And quite rightly so, what was Calamity James doing on 32 ins when he dropped that ball under absolutely no pressure? And the first goal, James just stood there, completely given up – at least Green dived in the same direction as Spain’s second! not that he had a chance anyway really. Should be kept in though now I reckon.
