And all it took was for Capello to name Wilshere England's great hope.

Oh well, don't suppose we're much different. Wake me up when Agudelo wins the Ballon d'or.

reminded me of Pele`s spectacular performance in Victory. WWII masterpiece with Michael Caine and Max Von Sydow.

Seriously, incredible goal.

This Davies kid ain't bad.

Tevez did not wear his snood today. He also didn't score. Maybe someone named Delilah took it away.

Rooney? Not bad for a backup.

hey, isn't that the guy who's brother plays in New Jersey?

If he had opened his eyes, he would have missed it.

Wayne's just a few sausages away from playing rugby as a prop. As soon as this fall he won't be able to get off the ground. It's in the genes. Google a picture of his dad.

Seriously...one of the top five best goals in Prem League history.
My top five:
1. Cantona's run & chip vs Sunderland
2. Rooney's Bike vs city
3. DiCanio's flying full volley vs Wimbleton
4. Tony Yeboah's juggle,juggle, strike vs wimbleton
5. C. Ronaldo's corner kick to heel flick vs villa

Didn't Dax do that?

What about Harkesie's goal of the year in England?

@genewells
That was a great goal but it was not a premier league goal. sheffield Wednesday were in the second division that year, before the formation of the prem league
