Unfortunately, a starting lineup of Tyler Ulis (21), Derrick Jones (20), Marquese Chriss (19), Devin Booker (20) and Alex Len (23) isn't exactly a recipe for success.

It equipped him with the knowledge that Keane could handle making his a debut in a prototype three-man defence. Because the English edged the first half against the reigning world champions and had the better of the chances until Lukas Podolski's world-class rocket in the 69th minute in his final national team game decided it.
