'If It's Football, It's Vital'

3 out of 4 aint bad...

We were hoping that the 'fab four' of David James, Glen Johnson, Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch would all start for England tonight against Germany in Berlin, and 75% will!

Sadly Crouch is the man to miss out as the other 3 start - although I am sure that he will get on at some point, and ideally alongside his Pompey striking teammate as it is an ideal opportunity to see the club strikeforce at national level...

Good luck to all the Pompey fellas tonight, lets hope they do us and themselves proud - but most importantly come through without any problems as we need them for some big, big games coming up at club level!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

When the commentator says 'Portsmouth have the largest contingent in the England side tonight with three and another, Peter Crouch, on the bench' you have to pinch yourself and ask am I dreaming? Heady days these if you are a Pompey fan.

Defoe's been taken off with "a knock" which is just what we needed.

wow, I loved the ITV pundits... "so, what do you think of glen johnson? possible future right back?" - "yes, I think all the player's did themselves no harm"... they did that about 3/4 times!

defoe was MUCH better than bent was - both were in an uncomfortable position, however defoe showed how he is so much more flexible, and willing to work for the team. not just a goal poacher! Mr Cappello also got the tactics spot on. He spotted a weakeness in the german defence, and we took them to peices with our pace. job well done.

What was the point of bringing Peter Crouch on for the last90 seconds? Was it so that he would get an England Cap?
