On being substituted in the 2nd half, boo's cried out from around the stadium & Rooney replied by waving as thou he was saying good-bye.

Now baring in mind how our fav beer swigging cig puffing & tree watering ginger manchild has form for expressing his displeasure at the England fans, is it fair to think his waves are those of a boy taking his ball home n not coming back?

I put to you, Steven Gerrards best performance for England in a decade (In a meaningless friendly against poor opposition, cheers Steve) might have saved this Rooney retirement.

Can you imagine the fall out if the team had lost last night?

Once Rooney was replaced by Milner, Gerrard was moved further forward and he looked the best he has for England in ages if not ever. It was the first time Capello has deployed Gerrard as the playmaker in a 4-2-3-1 and creates interesting selection and formation debates.

You can say it was a no-win game for Capello, if England had lost it would have been another embarrassment, and there would have bee cries for him to be sacked. However, the victory will be downplayed as being recorded against a poor side, although Hungary isn't any worse than Algeria and Slovenia.

It was good to see Capelloís desire to try out new formations and different combinations of players after the major criticism from the World Cup was that England were too rigid and didnít have a plan B. Maybe Capello has learned something by the World Cup debacle.
