Sloppy England scrape past Japan

Published

on

Two own goals gave England an unconvincing win over Japan in their final warm-up game before flying to South Africa for the World Cup. England started sloppily and were punished after six minutes when Marcus Tulio Tanaka met Yasuhito Endo’s corner and crashed the ball past David James. Frank Lampard had a penalty saved before England levelled when Tanaka headed Joe Cole’s cross in his own net. And England stole the win when Yuji Nakazawa turned Ashley Cole’s ball in. England boss Fabio Capello will trim his squad from the provisional 30 to a 23-man World Cup party on Tuesday and after the match the Italian revealed he had made his mind up who would be selected – but would not share the information. Some questions still need to be answered. England fielded 17 different players and tried two formations in Graz, a first-half 4-4-2 followed by a more compact 4-4-1-1 for half an hour in the second half.

But while both will have given Capello food for thought, England looked more convincing when substitute Joe Cole played behind Rooney in the second half.

Capello could be forgiven for expecting a greater level of urgency from players desperate to impress. Instead England were lethargic in the opening stages and were caught out after only six minutes.

The Portuguese Real Madrid ace has got 6.5million fans more than David Beckham.

But Ronaldo, 25, trails far behind Lady Gaga, who has 15million “friends” – the most for a living celeb. The closest British contender is football icon Becks with just over 3.5million.

Netherlands Celebrations

Netherlands , finally go through the FIFA World Cup™ Final last night. People were not expecting such a semi-final from Uruguay side but they have played well with so much strong heart. 

Germany will take on Spain in the second semi-final in Durban this evening in a repeat of the UEFA EURO 2008 final. The Spanish prevailed then but no team has looked more impressive so far in South Africa than the Germans, who put four past England in the Round of 16 and then dished out similar treatment to Argentina in the quarter-finals. Their upcoming opponents did not look quite as impressive in disposing of Portugal and Paraguay in the same rounds, the European champions edging through on both occasions thanks to opportunistic strikes by striker David Villa.
