5 min A good chance for Panama! They won the ball near the halfway line and broke forward at pace. Eventually the ball came to Barcenas, who slid a nice pass across the face of the area to find the unmarked Godoy. He slashes a nervous first-time shot miles wide.
5 min “It’s always fascinating listening to the Golden Generation™ talk about their time in the England squad, as Rio and Lampard have been doing during the buildup,” says Matt Loten. “It’s genuinely sad to hear how a squad as talented as any in the world at its peak was undermined by shambolic management, inter-club cliques, and hubris.

Yes, it’s an interesting subject, and Lampard in particular is excellent. Sometimes I think it’s a bit too easy to blame Sven, Keegan or whoever, though I did feel at the time that Sven was the wrong manager for that particular group of players.
