Lampard & Gerrard PLC

Who said that Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard can't play together? After watching tonight's International home tie against Croatia, it's plainly obvious that they can. Both players got two goals apiece as England ran riot against a Croatia team lacking our own stars, The Modfather and Charlie.

Lennon started the match and had an outstanding first half; getting fouled in the box which led to Lampard scoring from the spot for his first and then sending in a peach of a cross onto the head of Gerrard, which put England two up. To be fair, it looked as though the Croatian players didn't know who Azza was. They gave him enough room in the first half to set up shop and make a killing.

Defoe came on in the second half for Heskey, who in my opinion, needs to warm the bench of his sofa, let alone the subs bench. The Villa striker had two great opportunities to score and fluffed the both of them. Given Defoe's form, I could have seen him burying the both of them, but such is life. I don't want to sound too biased, so I must add that Defoe was quiet and quite ineffective. Let's hope he's saving himself for Saturday.

Kranjcar, the poor thing, was in a team that was so inept, that it reminded me of some of the Spurs sides Ramos put out during his final few weeks at the club. Eduardo was rightly booed in the first half, but that didn't stop the cheat from scoring Croatia's only goal. Cheating scum!

If all players were fit, Tottenham's showing for the night could have been 5 players and Croatia may not have conceded 5. This Croatia side is a far cry from the team that bossed England two years ago, or should I say that The Modfather bossed England in that match? He was captain fantastic that night.

I must add that Johnson had a fantastic game. It looks as though the defenders has started to defend. Well done lad.

Roman Pavlyuchenko also got a goal against Wales. Are we going to get a closer look at this lad any time soon?
