‘Cant Understand It’ England Fans Unhappy By Young Stars Absence


Last night was England’s night at Parkhead, and for Roy Hodgson’s team it was their sixth straight win following a comeback Group E win over Slovenia at tea time on Saturday, and wins against Estonia, San Marino, Switzerland and Norway in previous months.

For all the build up, the Scottish furore and the bagpipes whistling on a cold Tuesday evening following important qualification games just a few days earlier England took to the pitch quicker than the tartan army, and Scotland were seemingly blown away by the Auld Enemy. Those the words of Gordan Strachan, is Rooney ran riot in Glasgow.

So you would of thought, after what was a display which showed bottle, quality and heart from an England team that sometimes is questioned on all of those fronts, that all would be well as far as English supporters were concerned.

However, taking to Twitter during and following the game, fans, including some well known pundits voiced their annoyance at some of Roy Hodgson’s decisions. One in particular being the decision to not give game time to the most in-form English striker in the Premier League – Saido Berahino. Having scored 7 goals this term, many argued that one of the six changes allowed during the fixture should not of seen Rickie Lambert enter the fray, but rather the Burundi born clinical finisher thrown into the cauldron.
