rooney played well but was on his last warning with the ref. (and to be fair he should have been booked before) he had to come off.chrislcfc18 said:Bad tactical changes towards the end, can understand Vassell coming on as he is same kinda player as Owen and gave England an outlet but Heskey coming on for Rooney was a bad mistake. Rooney was our best player tonight so why bring him off, i mean you wouldnt bring Zidane off would as he was France's best player. And Heskey is such a clumsy player it was obvious he would eventually give away a stupid free kick. And at the end, well, if i was alongside Gerrard in midfield i would have been pushing him about like anything even if we were on the same team, absolutely no need for a back pass, just boot it up the pitch, what the hell was he thinking.

Walker has crap postioning on free kicks that's his weakness IMO. He wouldn't have saved that, nice hack down from James on Henry. He about killed him!

Spot on there Scowy, Walker would have had that one easy. James was looking excellent until that, it's a shame but when you stick a lump of shit in goal that's what happens.
