will they finally accept he has a role and can do it brilliantly. When we needed an "out" he was always there. Can see this option be so crucial in later stages. Well played Emile !
I bet when all the other teams see Englands team sheet with Heskey on it, they're laughing.
personally think bent should have gone instead of heskey. i'll admit he played well last night, but he just won't score us goals which are whats needed. just look at his 1v1. anyone else (except crouch) would have had the pace to get closer to goal.
saying that, he did very well despite playing next to the lump that was rooney
I think that comment alone negates everything else you've said
he had a good game against a weak USA, defence, I mean any of them play in a top tier league?
And the decent chance he had, just proved he can't score, or finish like a top class striker should, he just blasted it straight at the goalie.
