England don't break a sweat against Wales

It seemed all too easy for ENGLAND today. They seemed to barely break a sweat in defeating WALES, 2-0, at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium in a EURO 2012 qualifier.
I watched live on ESPN2.

England scored both goals in the first half -- a Frank Lampard penalty and a Darren Bent strike from close range after an Ashley Young cross.

England appeared to be operating on cruise control in the second half, as a couple Welsh substitutions made little difference.

Wales were missing Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale, but I doubt his contributions would have made much difference to this result.

I was thrilled to see SCOTT PARKER in an England shirt. Always stylish, never flustered, my favourite Premier League player seemed right at home playing for his country. Pity he hasn't been given more opportunities.
