England 4-0 Moldova

Updated: September 6, 2013

England’s world cup campaign was put back on track with a comfortable 4-0 win over Moldova with two goals from Welbeck and one from Lambert and Gerrard.

England started the game with high intensity pressing high up the pitch early on and worrying the Moldova defence.

Lambert started his England game and within four minutes already took a shot inside the box when a cross deflected of a Moldova defender and that was the only chance England had before Gerrard scored in the 12th minute outside the box from a Frank Lampard laid-off pass. England were continuously pressing in Moldova’s half which led to a couple of corners and chances.

In the 26th minute England were scrapping in Moldova’s box until Walcott took a shot outside the box which was saved and directed into the path of Lambert in front of an open goal and all that was left to do was head it in. After that chances didn’t come very often for England or Moldova. Danny Welbeck received a yellow card for taking a shot not even a second after having been whistled offside, which now consequently puts him out of Tuesday’s match against Ukraine and only a couple of minutes after, Lambert put a lifted pass through that practically landed on the penalty spot for Welbeck to take it round the keeper easily and pass it in.

The second-half started off with Moldova passing and keeping the ball a lot better than in the first-half. It only took England 5 minutes to burst their bubble and score when Welbeck got on the end of a Lambert through-ball and gently chipped the goalkeeper. England slowed down straight after that although they did create a few chances, they gave Moldova a lot more time and space but they were unable to create any threat on Hart’s goal. England’s chances only really came from outside the box, except for a Milner chance in stoppage time that agonisingly went over the ball from inside the 6 yard box.

One Step Forward For England Or Three Steps Back For Moldova?

After that performance, it would seem that it was a positive step forward for England when Lambert managed to find the back of the net again and Welbeck showed more of a striker’s instinct with both of his goals. Although it was positive for England, they did play against a dreadfully bad Moldova side who most certainly underperformed .


England’s star players were Gerrard, Welbeck and even Lambert in my opinion. Lambert did well by getting two assists and a goal obviously linking well with Welbeck being more of a holding player for Welbeck to run onto or recuperate his passes. Welbeck was

very good, being a threat for Moldova throughout the whole match and causing their goalkeeper a lot of problems. Gerrard put in a great performance playing like we know him to, a proper captain’s performance.

My Man of the match : Danny Welbeck


Any Moldova player could be in contention for worst player on the pitch for such an awful performance from the whole team. Although Moldova’s goalkeeper, Namasco, made a few saves near the end, I’d say that he was terrible, looking uneasy when going out for any corner and liable for a bad save when Lambert scored and a terrible decision to come out of his goal in odd fashion for Welbeck’s first goal.
