Thoughts on England v Belarus match

A slow week for good posts, largely because I’ve been spending most nights writing article after article for the next issue of the EPL Talk Magazine.

Thankfully I’ve been able to continue writing with one eye on my laptop, and the other eye on the television. For example, watching today’s England v Belarus friendly on Fox Soccer Channel.

What impressed me the most was the venom in the English attacks as Aaron Lennon completely tore past defenders down the right wing. What’s sad, though, is that Lennon won’t get a chance to play on the right wing during the World Cup unless he comes on as a sub or if Beckham gets injured.

This is one of the reasons why I believe both England and Brazil will be hampered during this summer’s World Cup. A national team manager who doesn’t have the chutzpah to bench his famous but not-in-form players is destined for failure. Brazil will be “forced” into playing the past-their-sell-date Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos. And England will play Beckham no matter what.
