Full Time - Slovenia 0-1 England

Sooooo much better

Milner was top draw, Defoe lethal in front of goal.

ONly downsides, I want to know how fit Rooney is and Barry gave the ball away WAAAAY too much.  We should have won that 3 or 4-0.

I don't mind finishing 2nd, congrats to the US and see you in teh last 16.

This could be the Germans now...then the Argentinians.  Difficult but if we continue to improve then anything can happen.

Milner was great after his cross for the goal but up until that point was as poor as he was against the USA. I thought he was going to have a shocker again.

I think they were all nervous first 20 minutes. Only moment of real quality came from that Johnson/Rooney exchange early on but that one cross was something we've been missing all tournament and then after that he was surperb, tracking to get the ball, winning it constantly and produced at least 4 quality balls into the box and even beat the left back a couple of times. I think get his confidence up he could be an unknown weapon. SWMpo and Lennon are quick but have no final product a lot of the time, Milner's not as quick but he's strong, tracks and delivers a killer ball. I think he could have a big say in how far we go.
