Chops on England duty
Chopra started the game and played the full 90 minutes, creating the second goal for Portsmouth’s Gary O’Neill.

Offiong was a half-time substitute, replacing Jerome Thomas of Arsenal (on-loan at QPR), and acquitted himself well.

Darren Carter of Birmingham scored England’s first goal.
