Can someone tell me why that game mattered?

(other than to Prowsie and Redmond)

I liked that England side last night.  I'd like to watch it again.

Only people that have suffered watching England these last few years will realise the magnitude of those statements.

I didn't watch the game as I was playing pool in my local pool league (I may have mentioned this before).

I did happen to see the Delle Ali "shot" straight at their keeper though, and the Podolski thunderbolt!!

Lee Dixon on punditry afterward said the result was harsh on England, I guess with the amount of Saints and ex-Saints in the squad then that is something they will be used to.

I got bored and turned off. It was like when a new fifa or pro evo comes out and you get everyone round but cause how you score has changed, there is loads of nice midfield play but few chances and some terrible finishing. This is how Redman plays in general so maybe it is what England are looking for.

 You missed Lallana hitting the post then? Sadly he went for glory instead of squaring it for an easier chance. Still, it was good to sit through an England game and actually enjoy it. The footy writer for The Independent didnt like it though and thinks England will never be any good until "they get their heads out of the sand." Fair point I suppose, not easy to play with your head in the sand.
