    Looking forward to seeing how Scotland heroically fail to qualify for that.

    You know the rules - they're British until they lose.

    Besides, heroic failure is our national sport.

    I thought you would mention the win at Wembley- in 1967!

    Good. Historically the most boring team ever to grace the football field - one that made a virtue of boring football.

    Good riddance.

    It's pretty sad but expected at the end of the day. Their midfield is literally just copies of eachother. Not to mention Ventura played a bunch of players with almost no international experience and expected them to perform well? As well as deciding to bring on El Sharaawy - who has been in amazing form - in the dying moments of the game. Smh.

    Sucks really, a bunch of talented players that weren't managed correctly.

    Ventura has played useless tactics in this campaign. Not surprised, they need prandelli or conte back.

    What? The last 2 games? That's nothing like the last 40 years. And no-one takes England seriously anyhow.

    Personally this will be a blessing for Italian football, for too long clubs in Serie A right from Napoli to Udinese, don't give young italian's a chance hence there is a lack of talent coming through now! Hopefully there can be a re-build like what happened in Germany and France, where clubs and academy's can produce top players again and can be given a chance in the first team.
