Japan v England: Open Thread

 Japan v England: Open Thread

In the United States, it’s one of those long holiday weekends, which are a rarity. It’s time to remember the fallen heroes who have died while in military service for the United States.

It’s also an opportunity to spend time with the family, have BBQ’s, visit the beach and more — which is why I haven’t had a chance to watch the friendly this morning that involved Japan against England. I’ll watch the match later and will share my thoughts. But in the meantime, I wanted to give you the opportunity to voice your own opinions from the game particularly how England did and what your observations were regarding the players who are fighting to make the final 23.

Also, on behalf of EPL Talk, I’d like to wish you a happy Memorial Day weekend. Thanks for your loyalty.

UPDATE: I finally got around to watching the Japan against England game, after a very busy holiday weekend with my family. In truth, there wasn’t a whole lot to talk about. It’s so difficult to discern any great observations from friendlies because friendlies are so deceiving. Neither team is playing at 100% for fear of aggravating injuries. There were glimmers of promise. But it’s hard to be too critical when it’s a friendly. Let’s wait and see what happens on the big day. And boy will June 12th be a big day to see how England performs on the world stage.
