Patrice Evra travelled to Anfield this afternoon as West Ham took on Liverpool. His every touch was jeered by the home supporters.

His crime?

England edged Norway 1-0 in Roy Hodgson's first match as English National Team manager on May 26, 2012.

The Three Lions started out quickly with a ninth minute Ashley Young goal. It was a great individual effort from Young as he dribbeld past a defender before a clinical finish.

The visitors couldn't add to their lead for the rest of the match but were solid defensively.

With the exception of a forced change here or there, it would not be a stretch to say Martin Jol has settled on HIS lineup as of late.

And, its interesting to note the name and age of the lineup. Especially when looking at the players who are not playing.

David Stockdale 26 Brede Hangeland 30 Philippe Senderos 26 John Arne Riise 30 Stephen Kelly 27 Danny Murphy 34 Steve Sidwell 28 Damien Duff 32 Simon Davies 31 Clint Dempsey 28 Bryan Ruiz 25 Mark Schwarzer 38 Chris Baird 29 Stephen Kelly 27 Dickson Etuhu 29 Moussa Dembele 24 Marcel Gecov 23 Aaron Hughes 31 Pavel Pogrebnyak 28 Andy Johnson 31 Mahamadou Diarra 30 Kerim Frei 18

Martin Skertel's own goal which arrived rather early in the first half simply decided the outcome of the tie since the Reds failed to pick up their game and grabbed the equalizing goal they needed.

The pivotal event came in the 89th minute as Danny Murphy entering the box was brought down by Michael Carrick as he stuck his foot out catching the Fulham midfielder and not the ball. It should have been a clear penalty but Michael Oliver, the youngest referee in the Premiership at 27 years having officiated a pretty good game till then saw no foul play or rather chose not to see it.

Friday tactics – Nasri or Milner? Who works best for City?

Who Ate All the Pies at related • 0 views

It's strange to think that Samir Nasri, artistic playmaker, and James Milner, determined workhorse, cost Manchester City roughly the same amount of money, depending on one's valuation of Stephen Ireland in the Milner swap deal. But although Nasri is the more talented footballer, Milner was excellent against Arsenal last weekend, and deserves to keep his place for the home match against Fulham.

Eur0 2012: Semi-finals: Portugal bow out to uninspiring Spain, 2-4 on PKs

Looks like no one brought their shooting boots to this match. It was a bunch of John Arne Riise's outdoing each other in blasting the ball into the stratosphere after doing a nice bit of spadework to get into good shooting positions. Portugal were the much better side in the first half really pushing Spain back as Cristiano Ronaldo applied his pace and ball skills.
