Well done England

When Defoe scored the fifth goal the camera showed us Capello with a grin on his face that reminded me of Tommy Cooper. I can hear him (TC)
saying " 5 - 1, just like that."
Well done England.

A very good score line but the performance did not match the score. IMHO.

I agree with that, I nodded off for a few minutes in the first half.

One thing marred the game, the morons who booed Ashley Cole. Ok it was his mistake that led to a goal, when the strikers and midfield make a mistake normally it is no big deal and no harm done. The keeper and defenders don't have that luxury. We were 2-0 up before that goal and a class above khazakstan and really there was never any danger of us losing the match.

I was really enjoying this match when the words "Strictly is on the other side" rang in my ears. Still the highlights are on after that other flaming phone in program.

Poor first half, but you can't complain with 9 out of 9 points, and the best goal difference in all the tables so far.

Could anyone tell me which top class, well-funded team England were playing against?

Yes and in June 2010 lots of people are going to be saying. England have a really good team now. We really have a chance to win it this time.
Just like they have said every 4 years since 66.
Well at least I saw them win it once which is more than all these youngsters can say.

GANDALF <|:-)> look on the back page of your Sunday news paper ;o

And you don't have to be a "top class, well-funded team" to cause an upset - look at Havant in last year's FA cup.

I thought that the "top class, well-funded team" played very well until they ran out of steam.

That's what makes football interesting.

Beat them 5-1 and you still have something to complain about? We put a very strong amount of goals against a team defending with 8 players the whole time.

1st half was very poor.
If we want to win The World Cup we need to perform 100% better!
