"Ok, a more central role for Rooney would help"

Didn't Hodgson play him in his favoured club position in the second half though? Him and Gerrard seem to be in some sort of alternate realities when on the pitch, hardly linking up. Apart from his cross in to Sturridge (which was a belter) he looks so uncomfortable when playing for England.

Also, Glen Johnson looks positively pedestrian and lacking imagination when going forward.

Apart from that though, I thought England played positively and it was good to see some attacking football and positive substations.

I like Sterling too: he reminds me of Tony Daley in his heyday.
