Young guns of England beat world champions Germany 3-2 last night. It was just a warm up football game before Euro 2016 in France, but Roy Hodgson seems to have an idea that his young and inexperienced team can be his best weapons by giving them more minutes on the pitch.
Harry Kane of Tottenham scored the first goal for England and Jamie Vardy of Leicester scored the second. Eric Dier of Tottenham scored the third in injury time.
And where was Wayne Rooney? Hodgson didn’t pick him. His number 10 jersey was used by the 19 year-old man-of-the-match Dele Alli. Or perhaps boy-of-the-match would suit him better. And guess what, he is also a Spurs player.
Strange, isn’t it. Tottenham Hotspur were the backbone of England against Germany last night. Their players made the difference in the game, not United’s players, nor Chelsea’s, nor Liverpool’s, nor Arsenal’s.
So, do England still need Rooney?
