What a match, with a well-deserved 4-2 victory for England (although in fairness Croatia kept us going right until the last few minutes) pulling back from an initial goal down to go into the quarter finals in style.
Once again Rooney’s face will undoubtably be all over the papers tomorrow, and he’s shaping up to become player of the tournament no matter what happens to England now.
I wish we were up against Greece as opposed to Portugal next match, because the home team always has the advantage of great support and morale. However, with 40,000 England fans and the Owen/Rooney combination up front I reckon we still have a good chance of reaching the semi-finals. Although Owen hasn’t managed to score yet, I think his time will come fairly soon and to be honest Rooney wouldn’t be doing as well as he is without his older partner.
