How negative were England in the second half and how second rate were we made to look? True France created very few chances and had Milner shown more composure after rounding the keeper, we could have won the game, but we clearly played for the draw and were petrified of France.
Who played well? Well Parker did for the most part, though he and Gerrard got it wrong between them for the Nasri goal - both dropped deep and one needed to hold the line on the edge of the box. Lescott scored but had a couple of all too typical defensive aberrations. Welbeck was good first half. And?
Gerrard is now a yard too slow and he gives away the ball far too often. Young, that slipped pass to Milner apart, was poor. Oxlade-Chamberlain made a number of bad decisions. Milner was crap. Johnson was poorer. Terry was Terry. Cole was isolated too often. Hart missed a cross badly and was arguably slow to react to Nasri's goal.
In a way it was a good result but, looked at another way, if either the Ukraine or Sweden win, we are up against it as the winners of that fixture will be in the box seat. I don't fancy us to win both of the remaining fixtures; in fact I wouldn't be surprised if we drew both. Should we draw against Sweden, surely the favourite bet, it could come down to having to beat the Ukraine on their own radio active dung heap. Even with Rooney, that would be a big ask.
