Henrik Larsson for Sweden (vs England), 20th June 2006
What were you expecting?
We're though. We're top of the group. No one got suspended.
... on the other hand....
Owen's injury leaves us with three strikers: one who is half-fit, one who has never played in the Premiership and has less than 10 professional goals to his name and one who is Peter Crouch. We look distinctly short of goals, and the fact that we conceded two to an average looking Sweden side doesn't fill me with confidence in our defence either.
Perhaps we'll fall into the perfect formation by mistake? A five man midfield finally unleashing Gerrard and Lampard at the right end of the pitch....? Let's hope so.
Mind you. I did get Ecuador in the office sweepstake.... so perhaps I can't lose?
(oh, and for the record, I thought Owen Hargreaves played ok, so leave him alone)
