    Two things.

    1) I though that the times the USA got crosses into the box, England looked surprisingly vulnerable, while the USA exposed England’s lack of pace at the back.

    2) Gerrard & Lampard in the centre of midfield does not work. England should have played either Barry or Carrick, both players quite happy to drop anchor. Most of England’s problems stemmed from England’s inability to dominate in this area.

    Apart from that, be glad that you couldn’t hear Tyldsley.

    Barry is injured, Allan, or I think they would have.

    England cannot afford to finish 2nd in this group, having seen Germany’s performance. They will murder us.

    PS – The USA line-up was shown a minute or so before England’s (somewhat bizarrely, given all the conjecture about ours) on ITV’s transmission.
