I'm glad I've not gotten into the spirit of the competition. The last England team that I believed had the ability and will to go all the way was probably the Euro '96/Italia '90 period.
Last nights second half play can be seen on most parks on a Sunday morning after the players have all had a skinful on Saturday night. I've never seen such a disjointed period of international play ever.
As it went on Algeria were getting more confident and obviously thinking 'England, who are they then?'
I'm not a football supporter anymore but do feel the need to support our national team. But I'm dismayed to witness a performance better suited to a sunday morning pub league kickabout than an international competition of the best of the best.
Still, could be a lot worse. We could be the host nation and have to actually *pay* for all this humiliation.
Speaking of which, has anyone noticed how quiet its gone on the subject of the olympics. Especially the cost?
Yes just when you think that they cannot get any worse they came up with a really dismal performance. I cannot remember at any time a worse display than last nights. Man of the Match I don't think there was one. Obviously the players are trying but nothing seems to be going right for them. Maybe their next game may improve I suppose all they need is a bit of confidence which seems to be a bit lacking at the moment. They are not the only ones under performing France and Germany are also strugling. So lets see what the next match brings. Mind you I could do with that £4 million a year Managers job if it is vacant soon.
