Lawro on England: Why the Three Lions' biggest worry against Poland is themselves

Lawro on England: Why the Three Lions' biggest worry against Poland is themselves

PLUS: Lawro on Gareth Bale's latest injury and why Wales chiefs need a reality check before think about handing the reigns to Craig Bellamy

It would be same again for tomorrow night against Poland for me.
Daniel Sturridge is lightning quick and in top form Wayne Rooney looks to have had a new lease of life and with Andros Townsend and Danny Welbeck either side England have pace to burn.
Even the best international defenders worry about somebody going past them that they can’t catch.
Yes, Poland have their inspirational captain Jakub Blaszczykowski and quality striker Robert Lewandowski.
But where else are they going to hurt you?
The biggest danger for England is England. We did well on Friday night (even if you do take into account that Montenegro are an average side).
But how often have you seen us string together two performances of top quality?

Gareth's Spanish Bale-Out is a shame

You have to feel for Gareth Bale with his latest injury. He is missing valuable time that he could and should be spending training and integrating with his new team-mates.
So, when he comes back he’ll be like the only bloke at a hen party. Reading Harry Redknapp’s thoughts on Bale you feel the former Spurs boss thinks the Real Madrid winger is a bit soft.
You get the feeling Bale needs to be 100 per cent fit to get the best out of him.
I hope he gets through this setback because it would be terrific if he were to be a success out there.

Check yourself before you wreck yourself

Craig Bellamy applauds the crowd after his last home appearance for Wales
Does Craig Bellamy need the hassle of being Wales boss?

Craig Bellamy is an outstanding footballer. But he is totally unproven as a coach or a manager.
You could get over that hurdle if you brought an older head in alongside him.
But they’d have the same players to work with as the ones that have put Chris Coleman’s job on the line.
The Welsh FA may be trying to line up Bellamy to step in. But you’d have to ask yourself why he would want the aggravation.
When was the last time Wales qualified for anything? If they had Rush, Southall, Hughes, Giggs AND the likes of Ramsey, Bale and Williams then maybe they’d have a point when they moan about the lack of progress.
But there is a massive gap between Bale, Ramsey and the players scraping into the team. The Welsh FA really do need to manage their expectations.
