Steven Gerrard put in a Man of the Match performance last night at Wembley, thrusting himself even more into the permanent captaincy discussion.
The first of the two videos below shows his well-worked goal that made it 2-0, set up by his good friend and perhaps soon-to-be Liverpool teammate Gareth Barry. It is quality of the highest degree, and a microcosm of England’s superiority throughout the entire game.
As a bonus, take a look at the second video, which is another fantastic goal scored yesterday, this time by Chedwyn Evans. Evans is currently on loan from Manchester City at Norwich City, where he scored 10 goals in 28 league games this season. He made his senior international début for Wales in their 1-0 victory over Iceland after scoring 9 goals in 8 U-21 matches, and in my experience, there aren’t too many 19-year olds who can score goals like this.
What a way to remember his first game with the big boys.
