Some Random World Cup Thoughts

Firstly, damn...Koller's just been injured. Looks bad - probably his hamstring. That's my 80/1 outsider for the golden boot shot to pieces.

Secondly, isn't it about time that managers gave Shaka Hislop the respect he deserves. He always seems to start out as second choice to someone else. He re-joined West Ham as understudy to the mercurial Roy Carroll, he was second choice to Kelvin Jack in the T&T team, he even ended up second choice at Portsmouth. Luckily for West Ham and Trinidad and Tobago, the first choice goalkeepers got injured and Hislop stepped up to the plate once again to show what a class keeper he is and always has been.

Give the guy some respect.

Thirdly, the rumours coming out of the England camp that Rooney will play in the Trinidad and Tobago match....don't be so bloody stupid. England shouldn't risk Rooney until absolutely necessary. A match against T&T isn't necessary. Manchester United are already threatening to sue Sven and the F.A if Rooney so much as gets heatstroke. Why take the risk ? Idiots.

England should only put Rooney in for the England vs. Sweden match.

Agree on both points.

Hislop's reflexes are excellent and he proved his talent once more against Sweden.

As concerns Rooney, England seem to be forgetting that theirs and United's interests are not mutually exclusive and that resting him against Trinidad & Tobago would probably be best for all parties concerned. With the quality in that side, they really should be able to overcome Trinidad & Tobago and there should be no need for Rooney to risk missing the rest of the tournament.
