HT

England 0-1 Ukraine

Konoplyanka with a long range right foot screamer on 38 minutes.

Jermaine Defoe's early strike should have been allowed
but for Yarmolenko's cheating going down holding his face in agony when he wasn't even touched there.

England have had a couple of chances, including the disallowed goal which he made the most of, but Ukraine FULLY deserve their lead in the first half. Fantastic goal!

Ukraine are picking up all these loose passes from England. Cleverley hasn't got his shooting boots on.

Result

England 1-1 Ukraine
0-1 Konoplyanka 38’
1-1 Lampard 87’ (pen.)

A late penalty spared England's blushes although a 1-1 draw was a fair result given how well Ukraine played.

Steven Gerrad was sent off and will be banned for the next game. Maybe thats a good thing as he wont be able to play with Frank Lampard again.

It may have worked in the first match against Moldova who are only 3rd rate but not against better organised opponents like this lot.

It was embarrassing to watch us be dominated in midfield and also over run at times in our own backyard.

I thought Glen Johnson did well at right back and put in a good shift otherwise the rest of our team were very poor indeed.

Any comments on last nights result?

Lampard getting m.o.m was enough for me, he actually contributed nothing apart from a pen. What bothered me the most is he should be getting the knack of that position as its his in the Chelsea line up but he was nowhere to be found when needed apart from hanging around in the area I dont know what his role is. At one point the ball fell loose on the corner of the box, he just had a shot from an impossible angle. Now I know there wasnt support but he could quite easily have controlled the ball and passed it back so as to retain possession, the commentator then praises the attempt as if it was all he could do, then proceeds to talk about the importance of keeping the ball at this level. Absolute retards, the press, the pundits/commentators and ultimately the players. After every game with decent opposition we are saying the same things, cant keep the ball, cant use it properly and issues with mentality. Its all getting a little boring now and until certain players (who have had 10 years or so of chances to fail continually) are finally cast out into the wilderness nothing will change.
On that note it is quite amusing that one of the old guard who has been cast away for "footballing reasons" would have been quite useful on Tuesday. :D
