England Vs. Italy, Euro 2012: Substitutes Ahoy For England

Roy Hodgson looks rather unhappy with how his England team have been performing in the second half and he's going to make some changes. There were serious arguments for both Andy Carroll and Theo Walcott to start ahead of Danny Welbeck and James Milner in this match, and now both are on the pitch, presumably because Hodgson wants to take advantage of Italy's weak flanks.

Meanwhile, Italy basically always have the ball at this point, and things are looking incredibly dicey for England. They'll need to actually hold possession if they want to make Carroll's presence count. Also, they're playing like Stoke City, which is funny in several ways. It's not clear how Italy will respond, or if Italy will need to respond. Still 0-0, though.
