Manchester United striker Michael Owen slated England’s performance in defeat to Holland.

Last night Owen gave Stuart Pearce's England a Twitter bashing.

He insists they played badly against Holland and deserved to lose, tweeting: "Surprised at the reaction after last night's match.

"Experimental team or not, getting beat at Wembley is disappointing.

"I mean, it's hardly like we played brilliant and were unlucky to lose.

"No matter what team is out there, losing has to be frowned upon.

"Have we slipped that far behind other teams that people now accept getting beat so long as we 'show some pride'? I hope not."
