  1. England were playing because it’s an “international date”. It should be pointed out that the original August “international date” was the 19th, the original date for our game against Norway. This was before UEFA decided to move the date last season.

    I’m not sure it was any more devoid of context or meaning than the average international friendly, and it was good to see some unsung heroes step up to the plate for England. The timing, however, is a joke, with clubs having to part with some of their best players mere days before the start of their premiership campaigns.
