I thought we played reasonably well until France scored. It was a nervy first few minutes from England but we seemed to take control of the game and had a few headed chances to score.

James made the wrong decision in rushing from his line - Anelka was just too quick for him - and he dived the wrong way for the penalty. After that England looked lost. We created little and the 2nd half performance was very poor aside from a few skilful moves by Crouch.

Owen looked well off the pace - especially compared to the pace of Anelka and Ribery who caused us problems whenever France counter-attacked. I'm not keen on having 2 defensive midfield players and although Barry tried to get forward he often lost the ball and got caught out of position.

Capello needs more times with the players but he's only got 2 more games before the World Cup qualifers start and I have to admit that I'm worried.
