BUT,their substitutions backfired big time,those players had shockers,nobody came on and made you say "shame,in any other country,he would be a starter".And at every tournament,there is always 1 game that gets influenced by bad or exellent tactical substitutions,Spain's substitutes were not at their best.
On the other hand,Scott Parker,Jagielka,for guys who barely have any Champions League experience,where stars.
Scott Parker should have been sent off! that tackle on Sergio Ramos was ridiculous,does he not know its wrong to tackle girls?
And Wembley boooooooooood Torres,every time he touched the ball,which was like 3 times in 30 minutes,despite most of that time being played in the England half,he reminds me of some of those Brazillian players who have a few good seasons and the capitulate unceremoneously.
Like Gabriel Marcotti said about Italy's 2-1 win over Spain,also in a friendly: a win is a win.
A win over the World Champs is a win,take it in any way shape or form.
