England Vs Germany

Posted by Jarv on November 17, 2008

Well its time for another pointless international friendly for England this week. I’m sure there are some reading this saying “ but its Germany, it’s a big game” well no actually its not it is at best a B international friendly and a lot of the big names seem to not take it seriously either.

Look at the list of absentees which include Heskey, Rooney, Gerrard, lampard, Ferdinand and Terry, arguably that’s pretty much the entire spine of the team missing. Both Ferdinand and Rooney missed the demolition of stoke city on Saturday but both Terry and Gerrard managed to play for their clubs and will no doubt most of those missing through “injury” will make miraculous recoveries for the next round of premier league fixtures and will probably play 90 minutes.

For a few players it’s a chance to impress the national manager with Call ups for Agbonglahor and Ashley young, who you might remember I said should have been called up previously. The most surprising call up for me was Michael Mancienne who I had only previously heard of playing Football manager ( a review of Football manager 2009 which can be found here) he was decent on there but then again so was Nii Lamptey. A few of the regular posters at the Away Goals Rule Football Forum have seen him on loan at Wolves this season and said he is top quality, if he should he play he will need to be.
