Sweden 2 - 2 England
Sweden 2 – 2 England
The usual Anglo-Nordic encounter. With so many of the Swedish players playing or played in the Premiership, it was always going to be a bitter contest.
Owen early injury was horrific; I felt my knee twinge every time I saw the replay. Newcastle will be well pleased.
Joe Cole’s goal was a belter, as in all fairness was the England performance.
The biggest exception was the defence, this defence is supposed to be the envy of all international coaches; they looked very ordinary and had no venom. They have got to do better.
Anyway, it was more or less the result we wanted. Bring on the Ecuadorians.
