FT

Ukraine 0-0 England

It wasn't a very good game but England did enough to earn a point to stay top of the group.

Congrats to Frank Lampard who won his 100th cap and almost headed in a late winner at the end.

The 3 Lions will now need to play Montenegro and Poland both at Wembley and beat them to make it to Brazil.

Any comments?

Well i saw up until the 86 minute and my recording cut off but it ended 0-0 so i presume! Pathetic!
That's what you get when you put two relics in the mid field and leave one of your most talented young mid fielders in Wilshere to carry the lion share of the creative load! Because of that imbalance only Walcott looked lively for England.
This is the mentality that will sink Hodgson and England i would have preferred Cleverly out there than Lampard. In fact i would have had Cleverly for Lampard and Barkley for Gerrard if all was still tied at half way through the second half.
Manager too stuck in his the old ways of the past ,too scared to lose the "identity " of British football!
Well i got news for you and the British media that pulls your strings! the game has changed ,the players within your association have changed and they are there for the picking . F*cking pick them ffs and lose the geriatrics who are being picked on past glories alone! And people wonder why some of the young players lose desire to play for the National side ,when you are sat on the bench for 85 minutes behind some of the players picked today! Flipping Ukraine ffs ,it's not even Belgium or Sweden! Crikey , we are doomed!

There weren't too many positives to take from this performance.
I thought Gary Cahill was outstanding at the back and easily England's best player on the night.
His defensive partner Phil Jagielka also did well and Steven Gerrard in a deeper role as always never let his country down.

Kyle Walker was awful at right back and the sooner Glen Johnson returns the better!
Arsenal's Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott were also a waste of space and should be dropped when we next play in October.

We are still unable to keep possession of the ball and can't make more than 2 passes without giving it away!
Roy Hodgson's tactics are just too NEGATIVE and nothing has changed since he took over just before Euro 2012 last year.
The facts are we have not been able yet to beat any of the meaningful opposition in our group yet which i think is pathetic.
The likes of Brazil,Spain and Germany wont be losing any sleep over the thought they might have to face this rubbish team.
