I thought Michael Owen played well without scoring, he came short more this game and worked very hard, his movement helped to create gaps in the Croatian defence.|
In a way I'm pleadsed we went a goal down early on, as England seem to do better when their backs are against the wall. What did disappoint me was the way we defended on Croatia's two goals, typical English goals from dead ball situations, yet why James didn't have a defender on the back post for the second goal I'll never know.
If we'd won the group we'd of enjoyed a long rest until Saturday, as things stand we can go home and hold our heads high, even if we lose to the hosts. But if we'd won the group and were defeated by Greece we'd go home ashamed.
