The booing after 30-odd minutes last night was ridiculous but it did seem to spur the players into action.

Last nights poor performance in the 1st half was down to a few things - lack of confidence after failing to qualify for Euro 2008, nervousness of playing under a new coach and at Wembley, having 11 players that had never started a game together before and a different formation to get used to.

I think we, eventually, overcame all of these factors to put in a good 2nd half performance. Winning breeds confidence but this is the first step on a very long road to recovery for the England team.

That raises a point that puzzled me last night.

When Gerrard was interviewed after the game he said that one of the long-term aims of Capello was to get England playing 'exciting football when going forward'.

How are we going to do that with 1 up front and a defensive minded coach? :confused:
