I was just thinking, why is there such a furore about England's World Cup so far? There wasn't any expectation of them doing well anyway, yet they've played decently enough, (more Italy game than Uruguay), so what is really p'ing people off? Is it the false hope that we had after the first game that they'd just demolish Uruguay or...?
Realistically and in hindsight, England were never favorites to go through in this group. Italy have the experience and know-how, and they're incredibly consistent.
Uruguay are blessed with two worldy strikers in Cavani and Suarez.
We have none of that...
They can still go through if we finish third, and a team in second or first in the table drops out for whatever reason .
It's not over yet !
Whether or not they were 'supposed' to qualify from the group, they failed to do so. So yes, saying they failed is perfectly legitimate.
Yes, we did fail.
Apparently, the media was telling me that this was meant to be one of the best teams in the World.
wE SHOULD have got rhough
