England v Croatia - S Wright-Phillips
Shaun Wright-Phillips
Distance covered:
5063m in 45 minutes

Was it 4-3-3 or 4-5-1? It seemed that Wright-Phillips was caught between the two.

The diminutive Chelsea winger did little in the way of supporting Micah Richards but that was because it was the role of the packed central midfield to help the right-back out.

Unfortunately for England his efforts in attack were often blunted by the Croatian defence or lacked imagination.

Rarely did he get to the byline and cut the ball back or fire a cross in.
