Boro going crazy!


BORO were going goal crazy in the opening half, recovering from an early goal conceded to go 6-1 up in their final friendly at the Het Kasteel Stadium in Rotterdam tonight.

Gareth Southgate selected a 4-4-2 formation, with Afonso Alves and Tuncay up front, Ross Turnbull getting the nod in goal and Josh Walker alongside Didier Digard in central midfield.

In the absence of several senior players Stewart Downing was given the honour of captaining his hometown club for the first time.
