Oh, England…

I’m certainly no football pundit, but watching last night’s England performance, you couldn’t help but get drawn into the usual conclusions that we really aren’t that clever at football sometimes. You would think that holding onto the ball at professional level is core skill. Uruguay were chasing more, forcing mistakes from England, and I couldn’t help but notice a similarity of Suarez to Maradona, in build and style of play, and putting himself in the right place, at the right time and intrinsically knowing how to put the ball in the back of the net.

And then the wishful thinking comes out…maybe we can still qualify? Er, no…
