It was a game that certain parts of the footballing media attempted to overshadow with the ‘uncontrollable’ raging bull that is Wayne Rooney.

Let’s get our underwear twisted if and when something important happens, eh?
England’s win couldn’t mistaken for comprehensive and despite conceding a penalty, they s till won by 3 clear goals. Jermain Defoe got his first on South African soil.
