World Cup Qualifiers round-up: Cole energises England with brace under pressure

The Chelsea man saves an insipid England as Scots crash and Wales steal a win…

Joe Cole came off the bench in Barcelona to score two goals and inspire England to a 2-0 victory in their opening World Cup qualifier against Andorra.

England were insipid in the first 45 minutes with Wayne Rooney and Jermaine Defoe shooting high and wide. Only the pace of Theo Walcott concerned the Andorran part-timers.

The Republic Ireland’s got their World Cup qualifying campaign off to a positive start with an impressive 2-0 away win against Georgia. Kevin Doyle and Glen Whelan added a second in the 68th.

Georgia’s injury time goal may have been mere consolation for the home side but for those who backed a 1-2 scoreline at a high of 18.5 in the correct score market it was cause for celebration. It would also have pleased those who backed Over 2.5 goals at 8.6.

Wales had to rely on substitute Sam Vokes to earn a 1-0 win against Azerbaijan at the Millenium Stadium. Jason Koumas missed a 66th minute penalty before Vokes,.

Scotland and Northern Ireland fared less well in their opening clashes.

The Scots remain without a victory under George Burley after going down 1-0 to Macedonia.

Northern Ireland’s  lost their opening World Cup Qualifier 2-1 away to Slovakia.

    They complain that the seaosn is too long now and about having to back up from a Monday night game on a Friday, imagine throwing a mid week game into the mix. If you remember the Amco Cup you would remember that most teams rested their better players and played a lot of reserve grade U/23 s players until it got near the finals. Also, can’t see it being picked up by free to air tv so it would end up on Fox just like Monday Night Football.
