Well, it’s been a dreadful World Cup for England. Normally, despite the disappointment of going out, there’s some glorious memory – beating Argentina in 2002, Owen’s wondergoal in 98, Gazza and Platt and Lineker in 90 – but this has been grim. No classic matches, no great new players, no win against a good team. Joe Cole scored a fabulous goal, but even that was in the context of a draw against Sweden in a game we didn’t need to win anyway. This World Cup, for England, is going to be remembered for a couple of injuries and a sending-off. Oh goody.
