Half Time : England 1 Sweden 1

Well done Sweden. I was hoping we'd miss the penalty that never was. So far, it is a damned fine game and it's good that Sweden have equalised so we can start afresh in the 2nd half.

Some thoughts here as this is, literally, going to be a game of 2 halves with the substitutions that are likely.

The usual story with Englan, good coming forward and dodgy at the back.

Big plus : Trevor SInclair having a fine game on the left.

Jury's Out : Carragher doesn't look too good at left back. I am really uneasy about right footers at left back.

Midfield (Sinclair, Scholes, Beckham with Butt in the Gerrard role) are playing pretty well. Even Butt.

Up front - Phillips and Heskey are causing plenty of problems.

Anyway, a good game and with some encouragement for England. Shame about the penalty.

Remained 1:1 at full time. Significant changes (5) after 10 minutes in the 2nd half. England started badly but the subs woke things up.

Sheingham, Fowler - showed us what we knew already

Mills, Murphy - both pretty food. Enhanced

Anderton (on for Sinclair on the left) - did himself no favours (nothing wrong - just nothing).

The curse of the England left side remains although Sinclair did well I can't see him as a long term incimbent there. It is a hard team to get into for a lot of positions but...

Where can we find left-footed players........

I think Rachel regards a lot of us as food.

I only saw the second half, I thought we looked a lot better after the substitutions.

Fowler was very unlucky not to score. Some fine reflex saves by their second goalie.

Fowler is the only England striker other than Owen who's shown that he's international class. It's a sad state of affairs.
