Why can't Sven admit that he's just giving England the bird here and mailing it in now? And how exactly did Michael Carrick go from "starting holding midfielder" to "can't get in a game" in the span of 3 weeks? I hope one day I can half-ass a job as well as Sven has done here.
BTW, Lampard either shoots a mile high, or scuffs it to the keeper every time. If you're going to drop either of Lampard or Gerrard, it should be clear who should be dropped. However, this is Sven we're dealing with, so who knows. He could go 4-5-1 with Rooney sulking up front and use Lampard and Gerrard with Hargreaves.
If Owen is out (which he may be), Sven's going to have to be inventive. Downing and Hargreaves as strikers? This was another less than inspiring performace (again, you English may have better words for their performance today than I do). They're bound to play their best against Ecuador, if only because I can't see them playing any worse than they are now.

I got an outstanding game by Riquelme and wonderful 15 minutes by Messi. I was sitting among Argentinan fans, which was the icing on the cake. Just fantastic.
