A2 – 1 win against Swiss. A good start for Capello. Some said this win is a must for the new gaffer to set a good tone for the rest of the upcoming features. He achieved that. Kudos to him!
But don’t forget, under Sir Alf Ramsey, the only England’s manager who managed to guide the team to win the ’66 World Cup, England suffered a 2 – 5 lost again France on 27 February 1963 at Paris on his first game managing the team.
So, in a way, a win in the first match in charge doesn’t tell much really. What’s more important is their first match in their World Cup 2010 qualifying campaign on September 6 against Andorra.
My personal take of today’s match: Bentley had a wonderful nite, hope he can keep up his work rate. So did Joe Cole. I’m not to sure about the strikers though. Rooney is superb when he’s on form, but looks like he still need that somebody to provide him with the killer passes he receives week in week out at Man U. Crouch, hmmm… ingatkan dah kena jual pi City. No komen. Owen, cam tak ada can jer nak main under Capello.
On another note, Torress is injured. Ouch, the big game against Chelsea is coming this weekend. We’ll just have to wait and see. Hope it’s just a minor scare…
You’ll Never Walk Alone
