Glenn Not Nostalgic

Despite the euphoria surrounding the England camp at the moment, Glenn Roeder says: I don't miss a bit of it.
After a memorable week for the England party, Glenn could perhaps be forgiven for a wistful glance back to when he was on the national team's coaching staff.
But he insists:
"I served my time there, it was a wonderful 2 1/2 years and I feel very lucky and fortunate that Glenn Hoddle included me.
"It gave me invaluable experience that will hopefully stand me in good stead, but I've done my time and really enjoyed it.
"Now it is a case of congratulations to Sven-Goran Eriksson, Steve McClaren, Ray Clemence and all the backroom team."
Although there was no West Ham representation in the full side, both Joe Cole and Jermain Defoe contributed goals for the U21s, against Germany and Albania respectively.
Of Joe's strike, Glenn says:
"It was a very good performance from Joe and the goal, which was terrific, was really good as well.
"He showed excellent acceleration to skip past a couple of defenders and he was ice cool in his finish.
"He looked up and slotted it past the keeper, and that goal will be great for his confidence."
Glenn is looking for more goals from Joe and his midfield colleagues this season and adds:
"I think he ended up with five last year, and wants to do better than that this time.
"Along with Don, Michael, and Trevor chipping in hopefully our midfield now will have goals in it."
As for the two England victories just recorded, he says:
"It was fantastic sitting there watching the Germany game, and it was truly a stunning performance.
"You probably have to go back to '66 to find a better performance and a better result.
"Ironically that was against Germany as well; it was a 10 out of 10 performance.
"I was involved with the England team when we got a 0-0 draw in Rome to qualify for the World Cup in 1998 - that was a terrific performance and a terrific result but I'd have to say winning 5-1 in Munich obviously surpasses that.
"I thought we could win but there was no suggestion it could be a 5-1 in our favour; it was nearly the perfect game.
"The Albanians have improved a lot and when they lose games they don't lose by too many.
"Obviously on the back of that fantastic result in Munich, they were always going to be a hard nut to crack.
"I don't think the result was ever in doubt once Michael Owen put us in front, though we might have had a few hairy moments just before the second goal.
"When you look at the saves David Seaman made, they weren't too difficult for someone as good as he is, so I was never uncomfortable.
"As Sven-Goran Eriksson has said, a win is a win, and all things being equal we will get a result against Greece and all be going off to Japan next year."
