Green Day - English idiot
It's certainly hard work watching England, cheering on those overpaid egos. The uneasy and alien slow build up lacking any of the adventure or passion our league football is renowned around the world for.
In fact playing a USA! USA! team, that plays in the style of an old fashioned English team should have allowed our 'better' players to excel but it didn't. Lampard and Rooney were non-existent, the crossing from wide positions was poor and Carragher and Terry struggled embarrassingly against forwards from Hull City, Los Angeles Galaxy and Real Salt Lake.
The Americans deserved a draw playing with a growing confidence after Gerrard gave us a dream start following a flowing move that later was beyond us.
A draw is not the end of the world though in the first game, which should, I repeat should be the hardest first round game.
Of more concern was Capello's team selection. After a qualification tournament when he got it so right, his efforts firstly to pick a 23-man squad and then a first XI yesterday looked hesitant and mismatched.
I'm not convinced we will see much more of Green, King, Milner and Carragher in this tournament. Oh well fortunately this feast of football has another 31 teams in it.
