Montenegro kept atop Group G with an inspired nil-nil draw away to England at Wembley. After easy wins against Bulgaria and Switzerland, England were held at bay by a determined Montenegrin side. The shared points do mean that both sides remain without a loss in early qualifying, and the English do hold a game in hand. Still, Montenegro can be pleased with ten points from their first four matches. England are on seven from three.

Group A:
Kazakhstan 0 – Germany 3
Belgium 4 – Austria 4

  1. England was lucky in the end as Montnegro hit the bar in the 85th and then just after that Kevin Davis could have been shown a straight red for a high elbow.

    Surprised it was Crouch instead of Defoe in the first 11. How long do you give Rooney before something else is tried, or is he of value even when his name is not on the score sheet?

  2. I think Rooney still draws the kind of attention that allows guys like Crouch or Defoe to score. But as long as Rooney isn’t scoring a ton, that effect is lessened. I’m also surprised that Defoe didn’t start, though Crouch has been better in recent club games.

    I hope Davies never gets another cap. What a jackass.

  3. Listening to a recap of the match, apparently Defore was injured.

    The problem is that Rooney is not scoring at all, either the club or international level.

    I don’t think Davies is a jackass, he was not the one who wrote the team lineup. He is not a dirty player but he does commit the most fouls in the EPL.
