I only saw the second half, but we'll have a first half report from Berty Me who only saw the first half.
They scored 2 minutes in to the half, when Kyle Bartley missed a tackle in midfield and Leonardo slotted home through Fabianksi's legs. After that, they went on the defensive, as they only need a win to go through to the knockout stages. Ramsey played in a lovely ball to Vela, who fired straight at the keeper when he should've scored. Walcott had a chance that was deflected over, Vela was played in again from Merida and shanked it trying to chip the keeper and we had a last minute corner cleared off the line from Leonardo. Overall, not a bad performance from the kids, but we only had 4 shots on target, and dominated possesion.
I won't do player ratings, but I was impressed by Tom Cruise, Gilbert, Ramsey, Wilshere and Sunu when he came on. Merida was apparently alright in the first half, Walcott was really unimpressive, and got a knock at the end, Bartley was decent, and the goalkeeper alright.
