Nothing out of the Ordinary; England 2 - USA 0.

A rather somber Wembley stadium saw England win a mediocre match against the USA.

Goals from John Terry and Steven Gerrard soon put an end to a dismal USA side who's only real highlight was Kelly Rowland singing The Star Spangled Banner.

The first 30 minutes were very much what people expected—a gentle end of season game with nobody really putting much effort into the proceedings.

England finally decided to get the ball on the deck and play some football as half time approached and a David Beckham free kick was nicely headed home by England captain Terry.

The only highlight of half time was a repeat of David Beckham's goal against Kansas from earlier in the week and news that "Golden Balls" would not be appearing for the second half as he had been substituted for David Bentley.

The second half started off in the same vein as the first had finished with England taking control of the game with their second goal.

A USA side, who had won four and drawn one of their last five games, should probably have proved tougher opponents for England, but with many players currently between clubs, it's understandable they may have their minds on other matters.

A solid performance from the England team, mainly Rooney and Gerrard, should leave 70,000 or so England fans, and Fabio Capello, fairly happy with the result.
