This is the worst field I have seen in any sport. Including the NFL during rain games when you expect a bad field.

Oh I agree my friend


We have decent fields, but for some reason they wanted to play there



I've never been so ashamed of my country in my life

Oh and I'm sure Mancini and City fans were nervous during the match

Dzeko could have been seriously injured by playing on such a ****** field

It was pretty bad. I don't see why the match wasn't just cancelled. Neither side were really able to do anything and BiH capitalized when Algeria practically stopped playing.

Just happy that nobody hurt themselves today.

I agree

My guess is that they kept playing because some money must have been involved

Not surprised Sweden are winning as we have a weak team.

It's not that weak. 6 players in it wouldn't look out of place in a regular England lineup. One problem as ever with this manager will be creating goals from open play no matter who's on the pitch.

In the first 12 minutes of Italy/France, Blaise Matuidi has 6 interceptions.

He's been taking his game to the next level recently. He was MOTM against Spain and has been incredible for PSG (except for his mistake last weekend).

It's weak compared to the team you'd expect from England.

Of the team only Hart, Johnson, Baines, Cahill, Young and Gerrard are expected first teamers. Most others are either back-ups or fillers to see if they're any good.

1-1

At least two or three of those fillers will be regular starters post-World Cup, I think it's a pretty strong team actually, just young.

Great ball by Gerrard, nice finish.

Great finish by Caulker. 2-1

Sterling, Caulker and Welbeck will be future players for us.

Caulker
Sterling
Zaha
Osman

All newbies. Would've liked Oxlade-Chamberlain to be in the squad but he's probably injured.

It was bad at the Euro's even with him in the team. I think Hamrén needs to bring in a new assistant coach to sort out the defending, particularly from set-pieces.

The team is looking good going forward.

BS penalty and Romania wins. Belgium dominated the game, but couldn't find the net. Hazard didn't get any gametime, what a waste of a trip. Romania subbed pretty much their whole team.

Lukaku pulled a West Brom and got a handful of chances with 30 minutes of play. Vossen was invisible.

Only a friendly but didn't want to lose to such an average side

Great control and finish by Ibra.

I'm convinced Shawcross playing international football is some sort of joke. He's awful.

Ibra hat trick!

I'm a fan of the football we play, was at the euros too. Problem is that most if not all of the goals we allow are collective meltdowns and misunderstandings between defenders. That's on the coach imo. So I think you're right that he needs to add someone to his staff.
