England thrash Croatia
First of all to start with last night's amazing victory at Wembley over Croatia. 5-1 was a great result and although I still don't feel that England play as well as they do for their selective Premiership clubs there was still much to be impressed with.
Under previous managers it was made quite public that Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard could not play together, now under Fabio Capello they can play together and even SCORE together. Each of them got two goals last night, with Rooney adding the fifth.
I thought that it was interesting at the end when the players were celebrating and congratulating each other and Capello came over to shake hands with his team, John Terry went over to him to give him a hug and Capello was quick to move away from the move and continue to shake his hand. Capello is not Terry's mate or any of the team, he is their manager. For however he does things, he has got us to South Africa with two qualification games left.
