30 March 2005


I finally watched a replay of the England North Ireland match...my god, with the exception of the first goal by Cole and the third by way of Rooney and an own goal by an NIR player (of whom I can't remember the name) the other two Owen and Lampard goals were quite the easy thing to let past...!!! The goal blitz in the second half were delivered in 17 minutes...can you say SHOCK!

They are playing Azerbaijan next...so we'll see what happens there...Azerbaijan coming from a 8-0 loss to Poland. By the by, the Under-21s won against Azerbaijan (2-0) earlier today.

Talking about scoring...Michael Owen looks set to leapfrog Alan Sherear's record of 30 International goals as he scored no. 29 in the NIR match. 'A further two goals for Owen would not only leapfrog Shearer to leave him in fourth place behind Charlton, Gary Lineker and Jimmy Greaves in the all-time scorers list. They would also put him first in the rankings of competitive England goals, having already scored 21 - just one behind Lineker and already one ahead of Shearer and eight in front of Charlton.' excerpt off Soccernet
