  1. 15 minutes in and England don’t look very good, especially up front. Peru are without Farfan and Rojas and even with them on the team they are so-so. England should be beating this Peru side easily and creating lots of chances. Let’s see what happens for the rest of the game.

  2. Am I the only one who knocked off work early to watch this game? Anyway, Rooney is running all over the place again but barely making an impact, as usual.

  3. Great (not) Fox Sports 2, another games I can’t watch because my provider (and most others) don’t care it. Lovely.

  4. If you follow the thinking of Jurgen Klinsmann , the first tune up game has the weaker opponent because the squad would not have its legs yet coming out of a hard camp and it still should be a w considering the team would not be sharp but promote a winning mentality to take into the other matches. Given that I expected England to come out slow.
