1 I should have switched the TV off after the first three minutes. England’s exciting attacking play stopped shortly after this.
2 The new England kit really is awful.
3 Peter Crouch cannot play up front by himself. He was impressive in holding the ball up but England’s attacks were too slow and predictable as a result.
4 Although Crouch’s life was not made any easier by a referee who seemed to think it was cheating to jump if you are already 6ft 7in.
5 Shaun Wright Phillips needs regular first team football. He was unstoppable in the opening minutes.
10 Conclusions: England 0-1 Spain continued
6 Frank Lampard and Joey Barton must have spent most of the week preparing their substitution backslap.
7 England are lacking in depth when it comes to world class players (ie take out Rooney and we are struggling).
8 It was good to see Fernando Morientes back on English soil and on English form as he blasted an easy chance over the bar. A familiar sight for Liverpool fans.
9 Micah Richards looks like the genuine article. We can only hope his drive and enthusiasm isn’t dragged down by the rest of the squad.
10 It was disappointing that the likes of Gareth Barry, Jonathan Woodgate, Joey Barton and Kieron Dyer made their England returns/debuts in such a lacklustre performance.
