Upgrade in minutes or watch with a NOW TV Day Pass.

JOE HART: Maintained concentration well to ensure he was not caught out by a couple of deflected efforts and little chance with the goals. 7.

GLEN JOHNSON: Some vital tackles and was England's best defender as others struggled. 7

JOHN TERRY: Mental toughness has to be admired. Like Johnson, good tackles. Organisational problems though and caught out a couple of times. 6.

JOLEON LESCOTT: Maybe his partnership with Terry is not quite as seamless as we thought. 6.

ASHLEY COLE: Superb through ball for Young might have brought England a second goal but struggled defensively. 6.

JAMES MILNER (off 61): Sticks to his strengths, which is no bad thing. But conceded free-kick for Sweden's second and offered nothing in attack. 5.

STEVEN GERRARD: Second assist, from virtually the same place as his first to set up Carroll's opener. Also created Walcott's. 7.

SCOTT PARKER: Early shot from Welbeck's lay-off. Busy night thereafter. 6.

ASHLEY YOUNG: Not his greatest night. Found it tough to impose himself on the game and gave the ball away in dangerous areas. 5.

ANDY CARROLL: Brute of a header to give England the lead. Gave away the free-kick that allowed Sweden to level but workrate was tireless. 7.

DANNY WELBECK (off 89): Brilliant winner to cap a decent performance. Given Hodgson a selection problem. 7

SUBSTITUES:

THEO WALCOTT (on 61): Took just three minutes to make his mark, deceiving Isaksson completely from 25 yards and then creating Welbeck's winner. 8.

ALEX OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN (on 89): Not enough time to make an impact.

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.

his year I am getting F365 a whack-a-mole game but with Brendan instead of the mole (Like the one with JD on Scrubs) and every time he pops up he says something. Outstanding Whack!, Character Whack!, Magnificent Whack!, Wonderful Composure Whack, Whack f**king Whack. Hours of fun.
