Hi I watched the International friendly between England and Holland.

England won 1-0 in a largely ordinary game. England using several young players Had the best of the game and the result was a fair result.

We worked hard and pushed Holland back. But we lacked penetration in the final third.

Individually Henderson was our best player with Colleague Oxade - Chamberlain looking good in the first half. Rashford looked danderous with the few good passes that got to him. Should have had a penalty.
Felt sorry for Joe Rodrigez. getting injured to a wild tackle that the referee did not even see as a foul.

Overall a satisfying start but their are many more difficult games ahead. I don't see this team winning the World Cup.

Cheers

Mike
