England stroll to unimpressive 3-0 win over Platinum Stars

Wayne Rooney made a goal for Joe Cole and scored himself late on after Jermain Defoe had given Fabio Capello's side an early lead against the local side. Rooney then became embroiled in a second half spat with Platinum Stars' Kagiso Senamela, and was eventually booked for dissent before England coach Stuart Pearce appeared to deliver orders to calm down.

Both Peter Crouch and Emile Heskey producing undistinguished performances in each of their 45-minute stint as they battle to partner Rooney.

Joe Hart got the nod to start in goal before being replaced by Robert Green at the interval, but a limited Platinum Stars side meant neither had the chance to shine.,,12952,00.html
