THERE were few more satisfying sights this week than a mustachioed Leon Osman looking every inch the seasoned international on his England debut.

As ever – and despite ITV’s lame commentary – the new-boy was ably supported by Leighton Baines, as Everton’s left-back also baby-sat Steven Caulker in Stockholm.

But spare some praise also for Seamus Coleman, who was terrific for the Republic of Ireland against Greece in Dublin, making a mockery of his exclusion from Giovanni Trapattoni’s Euro 2012 squad. Coleman is growing into the right-back role at Everton nicely, maturing as a defender with each passing game.
