Downing stars in England win

Stewart Downing, England and Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing was prominent in setting up three of England's four goals against Greece last night. He showed composure, invention, pace and vision as he took ownership of the left wing place vacated by the injured Joe Cole. It was good to see a Middlesbrough player fitting into the England team so easily. McLaren threw off the shackles of league football with a confident display, unlike anything seen by the Middlesbrough fans who sat through years of dull, negative games.

I suspect that when the competitive games start, a more cautious approach will be adopted.
