Not time for England to panic

England could only manage a 1-1 draw with Ukraine on Tuesday evening at Wembley and if we are honest, it was not a very good performance for Roy Hodgson’s men. But, there is no need to panic just yet. Anyone who enjoys a football bet will see that England should make the World Cup in Brazil.

When they get to the World Cup, it will probably be a defeat on penalties in a quarter-final, but that is not for now.

There is no doubt that Wayne Rooney and Andy Carroll would have both made a huge impact on that game during mid-week had they both of been fit. You could even argue that England missed Carroll more than they did Rooney.

Jermain Defoe did a good job and should never have had his goal disallowed in the first-half and both Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck put in good performances when they came on.

Tom Cleverley and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looked as though they may both have been a bit overwhelmed by the amount of pressure they were under. Cleverley of course missed a few chances that should have converted.

However, people who place Premier League bets will know neither of them have much international experience or are regular starters for their club. Don’t expect too much of them just yet.

Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard then still have a massive part to play in this England side. The team can be built around these two top quality central midfielders and they will be role models for the younger players in the squad.

They were two of the best players in a Three Lions shirt and showed that even though they are on the wrong side of thirty, are still of international quality. Gerrard’s second yellow card was a tired tackle, he gave it his all and the decision was a little harsh.

Roy Hodgson is doing the right things in charge of the national side, bringing young players in and giving them experience but also keeping the senior members of the squad around themselves.

Despite Tuesday evening being a poor performance – England can count themselves unlucky with the amount of injuries they had, and a very poor referee on the night.

San Marino up next and it should be a very, very comfortable win.

    there’s no time to panic because we are not very good.

    It’s 2012 and I still cant believe we are playing over rated Gerrard and Lampard in the same midfield.

    Yep, we’ll qualify then go out early doors after boring everyone to death
