England do it again…

June 21, 2006

Another world cup and another opportunity for the England team to raise stress levels nationwide through their inability to look at all convincing. Last nights game with Sweden (while a fantastic match to watch) was typical England, spells of brilliance and moments when they appeared to be a group of lads playing down the local park. Whenever a major tournament comes around you England get hyped up by the press to the point that people expect them to obliterate the opposition but that never happens. I can’t remember us ever having an easy route through to the knock out stage of the world cup and this time has been no different. Sometimes I wish they’d live up to their promise just to give my nerves a break!

Fantastic goal by Joe Cole although I do think he got a couple of Swedes booked through his diving (he’s always been a bit of a showy player in that way). And I feel really sorry for Micky Owen who just doesn’t seem to be having any luck this year!
