England's playing this week, but they aren't the only national team on the British Isles. Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland - and while we are at it, let's throw in Ireland - all play matches this week.
Theo Walcott was recently called up to the English National Team for games against Lithuania and Italy. I don't understand why.
Pace is overrated. Who needs pace when you've got intelligence?
In the 2-0 win against Switzerland, Jack Wilshere played in a holding-midfield role, a position that was fairly unfamiliar to him. Jack came out and had a fairly good game. Afterwards, when admitting that he wasn't so used to the role, the Arsenal midfielder said that he would study the position, particularly how world class talents like Pirlo and Mascherano play the role. Now, does that actually make sense for Wilshere and the English national team?
David Wyatt offered an interesting suggestion for England to try and improve a few weeks back. However, I disagree a bit on whether the proposed 3-5-2 formation would be of best interest to the national team. My case boils down to one argument: fullbacks.
