Parker reflects on 'special' night

England captain Scott Parker says it was a special night and that it had been an emotional day since he learned in the morning that he would be leading the team out at Wembley.

England lost 3-2 to the Netherlands but Parker says despite being disappointed by the defeat the players showed great character to come back from two goals down and can take great heart from doing so.

The Tottenham midfielder adds that the players realise they need to improve and he would be delighted if he was able to continue to captain the side.
