Good result and performance from the lads tonight, felt good to get some more game time B4 the season kicks off this weekend.From @JoleonLescott on Twitter:
Good win for England. Carrick, Cleverley and Lampard impressive. All three key in most encouraging thing of all - we kept the ball betterFrom @OllieHoltMirror on Twitter:
FT - Italy 1-2 England
The ref blows for full-time and that's a very nice scoreline for Roy Hodgson and co., even if it was a friendly in a neutral venue. The game will be remembered for Jack Butland's debut (not to mention senior debuts for Ryan Bertrand, John Ruddy, Tom Cleverley and Jake Livermore) and Jermain Defoe's cracking winner. Match highlights coming very soon...
A spectacular strike from Jermain Defoe hands England the lead.
