England took its chance and won it, I know its a friendly but its always nice to win against the World/Euro champs, something to learn from and build upon, Spain wasted its chances but props to the English defence holding them for 90 minutes
MOTM: Scott fckn Parker
ok nothing to take away from Spain, England maybe lucky but a win is a win, i also think that the Armada is the better team here, still a long way to go for England
Friendly: Another 1-0 win for England. The Three Lions beat Sweden for the first time since when?
1968, when they were the defending World Champions
looking back at the World Cup last year i cant see a Capello led team winning the Euro
What does anyone think about the John Terry situation. I think the allegation of racism is so serious he should not just be removed as captain but should not be even selected to play as long as the matter is in the legal system.
Well I think the FA have made an almighty **** up over this John Terry situation. How can they seriously remove him as captain without consulting the manager. It would be like club owners telling Fergie and Dalglish to drop Evra and Gerrard, it just wouldn't happen. After having his authority undermined like this, I'm not at all surprised that Capello's had enough and decided to call it quits. Leaves England in a very interesting situation going into the Euro's.
Still shocked with Capello's departure. Wow. Kudos to Harry Redknapp as one of the possible choices.

As much as I can't agree on the John Terry incident, that I can't see the future of England now with Capello gone. If we remember, England was in 12th position when Capello was appointed, and in the past year, England is on the Top 5 with Capello as manager. His then predecessor, McClaren didn't even sent England in to the EURO 2008 but yeah, let's just see the future of Terry and England in the coming months.
I can see Harry taking the job. The players want him and the English people approves plus he has done a remarkable job in Tottenham in just a few years.
I wish Wilshere would not get selected for the England squad in the Euros.
He's just coming off from a pretty long injury, and with the events that have transpired for the 3L (Terry ban, Shrek ban, Cappelo out). England doesn't have the best of chances going to this tourney.
