Well done England well deserved.
Sounds like a fun stadium to be in I love having it 'orf'.
Most are commenting ont he fact that this was a rubbish italian team. For one I dont think they were that bad, some slick passing from them actually got behind the England defence the same way the italian team at the euros did. The only difference was that Pirlo wasn't playing, other than that they played the same way. On another note, it was a pleasure seeing Englands midfield just like TGB use the ball intelligently, unlike bombing it forward and defending like they did at the euros. Thie England team yesterday seen to be full of players that actually want to play alongside each other. There didn't seem to be much egos, or much of nonsense that some of the "senior" players usually bring with them. To me that was the bigger pleasure not just the win. I think Roy Hodgson should take a look at that and not make the same mistakes the last few mangers made by picking the "Brand name" players.
What a difference it make when none of the Liverpool payers are on the pitch. Henderson and Kelly could have wreck all the effort of the younger team. Lampard and Carrick were quitely effective old heads. Kyle Walker was equally effective and Carrol was no more than a nuisance in first half. When put through by Cleverly in first half, can't bring the ball under control and lost the chance.
England wasn't the home team??? This match should have originally been played in Italy. Which made them the home team.
if anyone deserves that it is jermaine defoe..he has a torrid time recently and for me he is a class act,well done defoe and come ON you spurs!
Perfect game to stick young Adam Morgan and maybe sterling into this side, Morgan and defoe up front, speed and finishing. Im an LFC supporter, but I cant get my head around andy carroll
Couldn't be arsed to watch it so not much to say about it other than good win????
why not turn them over in euro 2012?
They shouldn't award caps for these fixtures. It devalues representing your country
2-1 against a second string Italian side - big WOW!!
Ashley Young is still Shyte!!
Team GB would of hammered both, boring game and lots of empty seats
Ashley Young is a brilliant player. Intelligent passing, positioning and use of the ball - exactly the kind of game intelligence and trickery that England desperately need. Unfortunately a lot of our small minded fans only understand "blood and thunder" and "passion" which has got us nowhere in almost 50 years! We need players with nous not just big strong blokes who can run really fast
Well done England and Roy Hodgson. I feel we are moving in the right direction at last,but i would feel much happier if he dropped J.Terry all together and F.Lampard. Both have been good servants for England but we now need to invest in our young players and develop them ready for the World cup and beyond. We have some good young exciting players developing and we must not waste this opportunity !!!!! Malc
Good game, enjoyed it regardless of the score. But I wish that band would learn some new tunes.
According to the FIFA Rankings Prognosis, England will drop from 1294 points to 1274 points with a 2-1 win over Italy. I do not understand the FIFA rankings...
Well done ENGLAND a great result, things rosy for the future.
great win against Italy's C team.
roll on the season, internationals are boring!
