Milner's England Nod

Milner's England Nod

Villa's Emile Heskey and James Milner have been preferred by Fabio Capello in tonight's World Cup opener against the US of A.

Green, Johnson, King, Terry, A Cole, Lennon, Lampard, Gerrard, Milner, Heskey, Rooney.

Most people I think expected Joe Cole to get the nod especially with Milly having to sit out training for the last few days with a virus, but the midfield man and the PFA's Young Player of the Year is going to be given a chance to stamp his mark on the biggest stage ever.

Good luck James, and good luck Emile...get yourselves hattricks!

I really like Milner, but either due to his illness or the fact he froze, He had a mare last night and that could be the last we see of him this tournament.

The reason England widemen always fair so poorly is that the service they get from the centre middle is laughable. They only wing it after they run up a blind alley going direct. If they were used as an outlet when in space instead of a last resort we'd get begind the oppositon more and craete chances rather then getting bored and hoofing it up to Crouch/Heskey

Tallaght i agree how noone makes runs the first time they did we scored, but england play by the rules to much there scared to make mistakes, which means most players just shy away and you don't see much of them, how all the media and fifa said rooney needs to watch his temper you didnt even see him the entire game because he was scared to touch the ball its stupid, they put to much pressure on themselves.

Milly looked completely out of sorts right from the get-go, so I would certainly suggest that his indifferent thirty-minutes was due to the fact that his body had not fully recovered from the three day virus he had been suffering from. Clearly a mistake to start him, as was arguably the decision to take Ledley King. A mere forty-five minutes from him, and now he misses Friday's meet up with the Algerians. No one wearing that England shirt did themselves justice, and while its easy to convince ourselves that Robert Green's blunder cost us the opening game victory, that is hardly fair, and certainly not the truth, as deep down we all well know.
