Euro Podcast: Tale of Two Countries

Date published: Tuesday 12th June 2012 1:48

Sky Sports News Radio’s Mikey Burrows steps into the host’s hot-seat, and is joined by TEAMtalk veterans Simon Wilkes and James Marshment.

Burrows lay into Ashley Young following his ‘lazy’ performance against France in England’s Group D 1-1 draw, saying playing him in the ‘free role’ does not get the best out of him.

Marshment and Burrows were impressed with Danny Welbeck, but Wilkes refuses to jump on the bandwagon praising the United youngster, making a case for why he shouldn’t be in the starting XI.

All three agree that England’s dynamic – and possibly formation – could change once Wayne Rooney returns from suspension, and the trio look nervously towards Friday evening’s crunch showdown with Sweden.

The Republic of Ireland also come under close scrutiny, having had their early optimism crushed by a ruthless Croatia outfit, and Giovanni Trapattoni’s decision to start Kevin Doyle is met with widespread derision.

Wilkes and Marshment call for Sunderland starlet James McClean to be given the chance to shine, with Burrows arguing against his inclusion, saying he’s too inexperienced and unproven at international level.
