The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Cup -

“I would make four changes to the Eng­land team af­ter the per­for­mance against USA.

“I would have started with David James in goal any­way and I would bring Matt Daw­son into de­fence along­side John Terry. He is in great form for his club and should be given his chance.

“In the mid­dle of the park I would get rid of Neil Len­non and Shaun Wright-Phillips and start with Gareth Barry hold­ing be­hind Frank Lam­pard and Steve Ger­rard with Joe Cole out on the left side.

“Up front I would bring Peter Crouch in for Emile Heskey. I could have scored that chance he had with my right foot and I just think Crouch’s scor­ing record de­serves a start­ing place.” “Robert Green is un­der mas­sive pres­sure now and for his own sake, if noth­ing else, David James should start against Al­ge­ria.

“For me Jamie Car­ragher did enough when he came on to re­place Led­ley King and should keep his place for the next game in the heart of de­fence as we will need ex­pe­ri­ence to get out of the group and he has that.

“The rest I would leave alone. I thought Emile Heskey did well and while there are ar­gu­ments to start with Peter Crouch, I would still use him as an im­pact sub­sti­tute in the last half-an-hour when he is at his most ef­fec­tive.”
