England beat Belgium in their final friendly before the euros. For the first time in a million years, we seem to have a game plan that works - give the opposition the ball, defend like LIONS, and take a chance if it comes our way. It's not going to be pretty that's for sure, but it's served Chelsea and Greece well before. We win our next 6 games 1-0, we win the euros (c&p from every football journalist in the world's twitter feeds).
Gary Cahill gets massively unlucky as he suffers a double jaw fractue after being pushed into Hart. Martin Kelly gets call-up as reserve resulting in some pretty tough questions re: rio ferdinand's omission on footballing grounds - he should clearly be in the squad, especiallly now. Also, isn't Kelly a full-back? Bizarre.
Finally, england are a lot more interesting with GNev on the sidelines. It's amazing how much more i love the guy since he's stopped playing. Hero.
