England's triumphant return to Wembley eventually went to plan this evening, as they came from behind to beat Hungary 2-1. There were three Manchester City players starting: Joe Hart, Gareth Barry and Adam Johnson.
Hart had an easy game. He made a few comfortable first half saves, could not prevent the goal and saved well his legs in the last ten minutes. Barry was tidy and more mobile than I expected, moving the ball forward quickly and even showing up in the final third at times.
Johnson was the most interesting one. He played on the left in the first half, and was willing to run at players and send crosses in. He missed our best chance, hitting an uncharacteristically acccurate Theo Walcott pull-back over the bar. It was a shame; an early goal at Wembley would have been a perfect confidence inflator. He didn't let it phase him, though, and was similarly dynamic coming in off the right in the second half. He shot over the bar from distance a few times, and caused the Hungarians problems. Set pieces were patchy but we can live with that. He should have a big role in qualification.
