We made more changes than them ==> we lost due to inexperience at the back seen as the partnership was weak in terms of having worked together in the past.

Promising games for Joe Cole and Rooney.

Finally, an interesting England football game to watch, some good agressive football, and despite the result, quite enoyable to watch...

I stopped watching friendlys when it became clear that even the players didn't take them seriously.

God it was poor...

Great goal by Rooney, he really is a talent, shame he's an Evertonian. Nice to see Scott Parker given a chance even though it wasn't for long and Joe Cole and Frank Lampard impressed again. Shame the team weren't actually bothered about it, international friendlies are becoming a joke!

The rugby however was top notch, difficult conditions against a well organsied team and we out did them. Jonny Wilkinson, you are a legend.

THe idea that prem football is better than the best players from across the world is absolutely laughable.

is it? is it really?
Take the england team, I don't think they can field a better 11 than man utd, arsenal or chelsea, let alone real or either of the milans or juventus. Scotland? Wales? Russia? even Holland? Bring in Brazil or Germany.
Football clubs can bring together players the best players from around the world, and aren't limited by nationality. Plus with the way the football calander is organised, international football is only really interesting every 2 years.
People who really support club football would tell you that they would prefer club football over any international.

THe only team who has better players than France, Brazil, Holland, Italy, Argetina, and England is Real Madrid.

What?
You think Arsenal do?
Ha..

Maybe Chelsea now.
There is more passion in International football (when it means something).

look at any of the top europeans sides and they're full of internationals. Not only that but they can be chosen to play together and complement each other.
There isn't more passion in international football, sure the country gets behind the country every couple of years, but most of them don't even like football. A lot of club football supporters see international games as either an annoyance which breaks up the domestic season or a way to amuse themselves during the summer.
Clearly you're only defending international football because I support Arsenal, which is fine.
