Well, England never make things easy for themselves - there's never a dull moment with England in big tournaments.
I predicted an early goal for England - and that did arrive - although many (like me) missed the goal due to ITV HD going to an advert break at a crucial point!
Overall England were frustrated by the USA and a freak goal denied them the win.
There were some key areas, though, that England had problems with in my view:
Played well and did exactly what he's been picked for - but when he was through 1 on 1 with the goal keeper we all knew he would not score. I believe a striker's primary role is to score goals.
In the second half he had one moment where he showed his pace - after that he did very little in terms of feeding the strikers - more often than not instead of going down the wing he'd turn inside and play an easy pass instead - he's in the squad to scare defenders with his pace - I think he under performed.
Where was he? The service in to him was not great - but I'd have expected him to adapt his play and to really have influenced the game - but he did not.
The midfield did ok, there was good play in patches from Lampard and Gerrard but despite England's dominance of the game they were not able to keep possession well - which seems to always be an issue with England in tournaments.
A draw is not the end of the world - lets see what Friday brings.
