England came back from 2-0 to earn a 2-2 draw in holland with a second half double from super sub Defoe.The Super-sub inspired the second-half comeback within three minutes after coming on as a half-time substitute and levelled on 76 minutes as Fabio Capello’s side overcame a shocking defensive display in the opening 45 minutes.

Rio Ferdinand’s soppy pass after 10 minutes only found Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt, who rounded Rob Green and beat John Terry at the near post.And there was another one to follow shortly before the break as Gareth Barry gave the ball to Arjen Robben, whose shot was well saved by Green only for Rafael van der Vaart to drill home the rebound.England will be happy they made a postive second half performance and turned the game around after a bad start.

Capello happy:It’s possible in pre-season to do mistakes like these. I prefer that we do these here. Not when the game is really important for World Cup qualification. And, also, I’m happy for the spirit of the team. I spoke with the players (at half-time). We have to play 45 minutes more and I’m sure we can recover the result. And the players played very well in the second half. Also in the first half, after the first goal, we had two or three chances to equalise. I think the spirit and the quality of the players in the second half, with the style we played, was very good. Always, we have to think it’s possible .

    I think it is offensive that Emile Heskey, Carlton Cole and Ashley Young are in the england squad.
    Ashley Young is fast but he can't cross the ball or can't do anything with the ball! But if you compare Young and Milner, who's better?…Milner by a long shot. Ok Young is faster than Milner but Milner can cross the ball, he works his socks off and he is more skilful.
    What does Heskey do?!?!? NOTHING!!! HE IS TERRIBLE!!! HE CAN'T EVEN HOLD THE BALL UP PROPERLY AND LOOK AT THE SIZE OF HIM!!!! WORST EVER PLAYER TO PLAY FOR ENGLAND!!!! Carlton Cole is a bit more skillful than Heskey but he is still not good enough for the England squad.
    Defoe is a fantastic player and should play up front with Rooney instead of s**ty Heskey.
    Barry was awful and Carrick is twice as better than him.
    This should the England line up
    GK Green

    RB Johnson
    CB Ferdinand
    CB Terry (Capt.)
    LB Bridge (NO A.COLE)

    RM J.Cole (EVEN THO HE'S INJ.)
    CM Gerrard
    CM Carrick
    LM Milner

    ST Rooney
    ST Defoe
