- Honestly I didn't watch the game. Honestly, I couldn't be bothered. Honestly, I prefer sleep. Honestly, Spain is way too good for any team at the moment. This is a team of the day. 29 games without defeat. A splendid record for a national team. Considering Euro 2008 was the first and only championship they have ever won, makes it more alluring.
- After studying the team sheet, obviously Spain is a mini-Liverpool. 2 players started the game, Mr Xabi Alonso and Mr Fernando Torres. Then in the 2nd half, came in Pepe Reina and Alvaro Arbeloa. The 5th player who wasn't fielded was Albierto Riera. A total of 5. So when they play for club level, Liverpool is considered mini-Spain. Unique proportion, isn't it?
- From the news report, apparently it was the mistakes of one Phil Jagielka that prompted David Villa to score the first goal. Jagielka of Everton, if you remember was the instrumental baboon in the small-club defence against The Kops. That is one of the major reason he was selected by the English manager. What a throw-back, huh Capello? A lousy defender you got there? hahaha... You should try harder to persuade Mr Jamie Carragher to return to the national team, instead of that small-club personnel.
- Now if you inherently noticeable, there was many headlines carrying Liverpool's former players. ``Keane at the double to rescue Irish'', ``Bellamy bust-up in Portugal as Wales slip''... These two characters both had a difficult time while in the Liverpool squad but they can do it elsewhere though in Bellamy's case, he bust-up everybody. Ask John Arne Risse.

sPAIN 2 - England 0 ( WHAT'S NEW?)
Anybody have that No.5 as your defender, will regret the decision... aren't you, Mr Capello?
