'Good chance this for England'.

We are playing Honduras, in a friendly. It would hardly be an achievement to beat them.

I still find it bizarre we didnt take Barry or Carrick. Also wonder who will take up that role in future.

Agreed on both points. Not got a clue really for a future player in that ilk. Nathaniel Chalobah, maybe? Jack Rodwell? :D George Thorne (WBA youngster)? No obvious choices to take over by Russia...

Get Ox in instead of Sterling (if fit) and you're spot on imo. Hendo's had a good season but Wilshere's just better.

Wilshere's never better than Henderson :D

Unfortunately in an England shirt everyone looks like a shadow of the player they are for their clubs. I suggest the players the aren't completely useless should start against Italy!

Both are pretty average, tbf.

Cahill does the same thing and it's just "a ball there to be attacked" :D

Do you mean in an England shirt or this season? Because Henderson's done far more this season than Wilshere has in every season he's had put together :D

Wilshere's break out season was far more impressive than anything Henderson has done tbh.

Henderson had a better season but there's no doubt Wilshere is a better player when not injured.

I hope you're kidding!

Don't get any of the fuss made over Wilshere. Seriously. Just an aggressive footballer with little man syndrome. Capable of a great performance now and again but generally speaking nowhere near as good as he's made out to be.

Wilshere's just a young Scotty's Parker.

WHO SAID THAT!!? *looks behind*

I may be a bit biased as an Arsenal fan and admit Wilshere hasn't had a great season, but for England he looks better than Henderson. Better technique and range of passes as well as more tempo dictating as opposed to just running around alot.

Barkley is pushing so far forwards that Sturridge and Welbeck are having to drop into the deep space to keep the link.

Henderson is hardly running around a lot tbf. He's actually playing a far more reserved role than he would for Liverpool

One of those games for Sturridge.

Wilshere is better going forward with the ball, giving quick passes into feet and running on. Henderson is better at keeping possession though.

I get the idea of club mates playing together in centre mid but England play nothing like Liverpool!

Absolutely no point bringing Forster on for 15 minutes against 10 man Honduras.

It'll probably be BBC and ITV for the rest of time. Hope Sky never get their paws on it anyway. And this is coming from someone who pays for Sky (begrudgingly!). Same for BT.

This. Henderson is in form, but Wilshere is and will be the better player of the two.

Sturridge annoys the **** out of me. Love Welbeck though, he's really underrated.

The lack of options for a player in possession is awful.

Henderson been learning off Stevie Me?

No point in that shot.

On the plus side for Wilshere, he hasn't spent half this game on the floor like the other night.

Best to keep a hold of the ball, even if passing it back to the defence...instead of just blasting it into the stands.

So, 0-0 v Honduras. Not the best prep is it. We're gonna really struggle v Italy and Uruguay at this rate, regardless of what Townsend says.

Honduras very organised. Nothing going forwards though and very dirty.

Wouldn't be surprised if they failed to get a win in their group and picked up at least one red along the way :D

"These are the same sort of standard as Costa Rica, so not seen too much to worry us".

Er Clive, it is still 0-0.

Can't see how the hype behind Wilshere and Barkley is justified. Both seem to end up running into unmanageable situations and lose the ball far more often than others.

He may be right in what he's saying but what he's forgetting is that England aren't that good/are probably worse.

We were much better (effective) with Rooney and Gerrard on the pitch. Barkley might be an exciting prospect, but he has no idea what he's doing half the time. People saying be otherwise are just wrong.

We really weren't. Rooney has done nothing to deserve to start.

Ridiculous heat and humidity, 1 week before the world cup, big disruption halfway through the match, we ould well end up pony next week and the week after...but there's a few reasons there why we might only be a shadow of what we might end up like possibly.
