Name your starting front two for the World Cup
Crouch – did dance after all
As friendlies with a point to them go, last night’s actually did a pretty good job. Baines played himself into the squad, Carrick is probably feeling a little bit more confident. Walcott can now safely book a nice summer holiday somewhere.
But a few important decisions are still hanging in the balance. Evidence suggests that Capello is going to give Robert Green the chance to emulate Gordon Banks, which seems like an odd choice. And up front, it’s all to play for.
Peter Beardsley has already made his feelings clear(ish), Heskey will forever have those who champion his shire horse role in the team, but has Crouch done enough to force the envelope and partner Rooney?
