EXTRA: England squad changes

The Telegraph reports that Sven will be using the following formation tonight againt Hungary, and possibly in the first three matches of the Cup:



'Tache / JT / Rio / Tap-Up


Spice Boy / Fat Frank / Young Joe

Stevie G


This may be the greatest proof ever that Sven has regained whatever sanity he once had. Just get your best players out on the pitch and let them do what they're best at. The only problem is that it's not the easiest system to work - responsibilities are not entirely clear (e.g., will Young Joe have to defend more space in midfield?). TDH has a mild doubt about using Carragher in place of Carrick, but it's probably just as well to have someone who won't try to get forward all the time. And there's no doubt about Carragher's ability to play as a sweeper. So this should be quite the display.
