England 1 – 3 Australia


A brief glance and you could be forgiven for thinking that this is an Ashes series result. England are never going to lose a football match to the Aussies though, are they?! Guess again, mate. Result aside, this was quite a memorable match for many reasons. Sven Goran-Erisson substituted the whole England team at half time and gave debuts two three notable England players: Wayne Rooney, Jermaine Jenas and Francis Jeffers. Rooney well documented and Jenas had a perfectly respectable international career, certainly given the strength of English midfielders at this point in time. Jeffers, though. One cap, one goal. That’s your lot. Anyway, Australia. Australia were brilliant and won convincingly. No urn this time though, lads.
