England vs Italy
I am getting excited so wanted to discuss this Sunday's quarter final.
Personally I'd start with - Hart, Johnson, Terry, Lescott, Cole, Walcott, Parker, Gerrard, Young, Rooney, Carroll.
I'd go with Carroll because, as everybody knows, the Italians are defensively sound and would have rarely come up against a strike force as physical as Carroll and as talented as Rooney. Carroll would rough them up and hold the ball up better than Welbeck, bringing Rooney into play more.This would also allow Rooney to drop into midfield and support Gerrard and Parker when Italy are on the ball. The Italians also have two pacey wingback's and although Milner is good defensively, I'd go with Walcott for the pace in both directions. Tuesday night, Young's inswinger's were very dangerous and with Carroll in the middle would become even more dangerous. Those are my thoughts. Over to you.....
