England 2 v Slovenia 1

They say that iffy penalty decisions even themselves out over a season, well not wanting to tempt fate but Wayne Rooney's penalty decission was poor at best. Indeed before that Robert Green was lucky not to be spotted handling the ball outside his area. On a positive note Defoe cannot seem to stop scoring and is the hot team selection talking point before the Croatia game. Surely he must start the game!
