Rooney to start against Sweden.

18 Jun

According to Auntie Beeb, but who'll play alongside him? Whining dipper's not looked too hot, so you'd have to think that without the yellow card Crouch would get the nod (another dipper, but nurture rather than nature, so not as bad). He's got the card hanging over him though, so prob gonna be whining owen. Either way for England to have a chance of winning the tournament, Rooney has to shine. Simple as that. He really is very special indeed, I'm excited to see him on this stage, I just hope had can keep his temper under control….

    Whining dipper is the generally accepted partner, also Hargreaves in for Gerard may prove to be somewhat interesting. I am not convinced that this will be a very dominant performance from England, I think it will be more negative than positive and probably end up a draw. Cue even greater english press feeding frenzy of wildly fluctuating optimism and despair.

    The way Owen’s been playing, you’d have to think Crouch would get the nod ahead of him if he didn’t have the card, no?

    Crouch will get shown up by anything that resembles a half decent defence, OK for impact and adding a dimension late in the game but not for a full 90 against reasonable oposition. England really need Owen to find his form, Rooney has shown that he will just be a wonderfully disruptive influence in the last thrid even if he is not completely 100%, but we need both of them playing well to have a chance at this thing.
