    Still suffering from injury problems...Bassett fielded a similar squad to what we saw in the qualifiers. There were some changes though with Curtis Davies in as captain, and Jack Grealish bolstering midfield. 2 other players have been brought back from injury in the form of Smalling and Stones, with Stones slotting in at RB. Also Joe Hart was added as the GK due to Bywater catching a condition known as SBC, which made him completely disappear from this reality.

    England started strong with 2 metre Peter getting onto the end of a Wayne Rooney corner and smashing a volley past the goalkeeper.


    In the 18th minute, Defoe received a pass from Crouch that left him through on goal, he showed shades of the pace he used to have, and with Cech bearing down on him, chipped the keeper to make it 2-0...replays have since shown that the ball deflected of Cech before going into the net.

    In the 43rd minute, Fernandinho scythed down Defoe in the box and England were awarded a penalty which Rooney calmly converted sending the keeper the wrong way.

    Bassett refused to be interviewed after the match, although he could be heard muttering "Flipping Curtis Davies showed them press morons". At least that's what we thought he said!

    England were probably the better team, but Cole's pace proved an issue on the left side allowing 2 goals to be scored. There was a mess up with the highlights, but Defoe scored another 2.

    England faced a feisty team this time and due to a red card they just left the field of play. Fortunately Defoe managed to score before half time. Downing crossed to the back post, Lennon headed it to Defoe who powered it in to the top corner. Defoe is in fine form at the moment!

    Game 4

    England 1-2 Siney BHA

    08301771-cf27-40bf-8a36-57fe6f4b6ae4.PNG?sv=2015-12-11&sr=b&si=DefaultAccess&sig=YX4P%2FBjcKEkL%2FIPwlKa4pt2Ep56Yx2AyyeWP9ysWzE0%3D

    England couldn't do much here, the opponent liked his back post crosses and it was only a matter of time. Townsend had a good game, assisting another Defoe goal. A low cross to the edge of the box which Defoe took first time for a sweet goal.

    Unfortunately, Luke Shaw is injured now for the next game, meaning Cole has had to be called up again.

    Game 5

    England 3-1 Wirral Rovers


    aca598dc-6ea9-4cc3-b5e8-862d1698dcac.PNG?sv=2015-12-11&sr=b&si=DefaultAccess&sig=n7C7co99OJFKVewcsaEwgqzhxtoGBk5tD%2BWVFEQG4z4%3D

    England back on form after the defeat. Townsend scored from kick off with a placed shot into the bottom left corner with his left peg.

    Townsend again as Defoe played him through on goal, this time he placed into the bottom left with his right foot.

    Crouch through to Loftus-Cheek in the 74th minute who pulled off a spectacular, doing a rainbow flick and volleying past the keeper for goal number 3.

    Jesus with the consolation goal as Vardy passed into feet and Jesus first touch took Curtis out of the game, allowing a driven shot into the bottom corner.

    Shaw returns for the next game, with another returnee and it's a big one. "arry" Kane!

    Game 6

    England 2-2 Hooners FC


    d1b46fe5-e1c0-4f8e-8c91-ed1ab9a2f225.PNG?sv=2015-12-11&sr=b&si=DefaultAccess&sig=2goRf8pwGhgaZeO1nMZH4pgUhmNEx%2F5n5%2FAtLl6jU6c%3D

    Kane returns with a thumping goal and then gets taken down in the box to allow Defoe on the scoresheet from the penalty spot.

    England showed a defensive masterclass which meant that Hooners were just firing long shots with De Bruyne...2 of which went in. Shame really, England were the better team.

    I'll decide on the next player to bring back when I play again. It will probably be a striker.
