Rooney red spoils England's night (Video)
Red card ruins England's night
England clinched the top spot in Group G of the Euro 2012 qualifiers after an eventful 2-2 draw at Montenegro. Ashley Young and Darren Bent got the Three Lions ahead in the first half, before the home side pegged back on the stroke of halftime. The visitors seemed to be cruising until Wayne Rooney was sent off midway through the second half; the Montenegrins left it late, but still scored a last-gasp equalizer to pinch a point.

The Lions came into the match needing only a point to seal its place in next year's draw, and all but assured themselves of the spot within half an hour. Ashley Young opened the scoring with a header from Theo Walcott's right-wing cross, and provided a perfect pass to Darren Bent for the second, leaving the Aston Villa man with an easy finish from a few yards out.

Montenegro had created very little in the first half, but they got a goal out of nowhere just before the break. Elsad Zverotic took a short ball on the chest, and fired a shot toward goal; it took a heavy deflection off an England defender, and caromed past Joe Hart to cut the deficit in half.

The match died down somewhat after the restart, but it only took one moment of madness from Wayne Rooney for the drama to reappear. He tussled with Miodrag Dzudovic on the left side, and mindlessly kicked out at the defender in plain view of the entire crowd. The ref immediately sent him to the dressing room, and England were left to finish out the match with ten men.

Fabio Capello's men still looked to be heading for a victory late on, but Montenegro earned a point with from the match with their first chance during added time. Stefan Savic, a Man City player, sent a teasing cross into the six yard box, and it was met at the far post by Andrija Delibasic, who nodded it home from point-blank range to the delight of the home fans.

With the late draw, Montenegro snatched the runner-up spot in Group G, and all but assured a spot in the two-legged qualifier. For England, the senseless sending-off of Rooney will result in at least a one-match ban for the Man United striker, throwing Capello's plan for the finals next year into disarray.

I dont think the football shirt looks right on dosent look right for his character and the eyes on octopus are slightly too big but you cannot blame them for trying.
