Well done England! Now that Rooney is back for the game with Ukraine things really look good. I Hope Hodgson will start with Walcott as well. Not sure about who will play alongside Rooney in attack, but whoever it is must play well. The only negative aspect about the game with Sweden was the tendency to get to deffensive once they scored. I guess they have to get rid of this bad habbit. Must keep the presure on the other team. I hope they win against Ukraine and avoid Spain in the quaters. Go on England!
Once again i say well done England i can't wait when will go through i reckon we can beat ukraine fingers crossed for tuesday now we have got the carrol rooney combination come on the lads you can do it?
pleased we won but don't like the tactics of going a goal up and then passing the ball to the opposition until they score. Need to drop Milner and Young and bring in someone with some pace to play wide . From TERRY D
In the annual big meeting of football powerhouses England and Spain, negotiations were held. England and Spain took the opportunity to snipe at each other. At the end of the day, the former stomped of while the latter, laughed. Here is our exclusive report on what were said. England: Hey You! Spain: What? England: We, the King of Europe, won’t want to face you at the Round of 16. (says quickly as Spain smirked in contempt) but we are not scared of you. So, you better play properly! Spain: (sniggering at England’s ignorance of Spain’s Powers) I think, that with your lack of talent and plentiful injuries, you will have a much harder task of getting first! England: I will show you! In the end, England tried to prove that they are capable and as a result, tired out and lost the match. Spain : Ha ha!
sorry england but your defence is in a very bad state
I guess the Swedes have had enough of Kiev...two leads in two matches...and blew them both. They'll be joining the Irish on the pines.
Ok because he is so good at utd I hate Rooney with a passion ....but COME ON ROONEY this is our beloved ENGLAND lets see your team playing qualities... maybe Hodgson should bench him for the first half? I want to see Rooney keen to prove himself...Rooney without a doubt is one of the best in the world when he uses it and plays for the team! GO GO ENGLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!v
Good to see LFC players doing well ...Hopefully Rooney will follow and play to his ability .. if he does he will make a big difference to our beloved England! and Theo!!!! Some difficult decisions for Hodgson to make ... 100% Rooney has to be included in the team...OK maybe we can just about scrape the group stages without him but to progress further we need Rooney playing in top form!
Looking at the highlights of Carrolls Goal he jumped at least four feet high! He should have his own brand of Football Boots and call the CARROLL AIR or something how did he get so high up! Thats a trick he should use again!
We all completely forgot about Walcot and his abilty, we shoot our players down too quickly then everyone including the opposition are caught out. Walcot can scare defenders to death with his turn of pace and ball skills. He's hardy been given a chance until now. Carrol is one of the best headers of the ball the english game has had the amount he scored for Newcastle was amazing but again that was forgotten as they are not a top 4 team.. Its the same with Russia players.
you people are going no were? englond
Amazing! Unbeliveable lucky :)
FB are you forgetting that Rooney scored over 35 goals this year not to mention he isn't even inthe same age bracket as Terry and Lampard as he is 26 and in his prime and is also just coming off the back of a great season. If you think he won't make a difference to the England squad then you honestly have no clue. Footballs coming home!
SUPERMEN As usual the God's Are Looking after Hodgson , because the course of the game was in Sweden's hands and they blue-it , plus ingenious Welbeck who made a mistake and the ball bounced kindly of his heels and presto , from being down 1 - 2 they waited till 10 min. from the end for God's Favour to make it......LUCKY BRITAIN. Ukraine is the last hurdle , so Shrek might not even get a game if Hodgson is satisfied with his squad after the Sweden miracle , bu t beware the HOME TEAM , THE HOME SUPPORT AND BEING ON ENEMY TERRITORY , THEY DON'T TAKE PRISONERS , THEY DON'T LIKE FOREIGNERS , THEY DON'T LIKE ANYONE WHO IS NOT WHITE, THEY ARE VERY PREJUDIST...........BEWARE ENGERRRRRLANDERS.....WE..ISZT HARD MEN ?
IF and only IF England get out of the groups they will most likely finish 2nd and face the most likely 1st place Spain where they will be 1st class drubbed!! Probably play one striker again aswel...
Well done England - who needs Rooney?
FB, your comment is just like you're on FB chat... Carrol did it better.... Carrol/Rooney would be too perfect not only for the English team but even if Fergie had Carrol... It's gonna be a gr8 combo! Watch Carrol/Rooney against Ukraine!
THAT'S RIGHT NEVER GIVE UP ENGLAND!!!!! :).. P.S. Welbeck has the goal of the season.
@ Stevo, by the comments here, any comment that has even a tiniest hint of supporting any other team instead of England will DEFINITELY get more thumps down than up!

A real impact appearance as a substitute. Has given himself a chance of a starting slot against Ukraine.
