The beautiful game

It is perfectly feasible (accepting Spain have an off day) that this year’s World Cup semi finals will be a private party – only South Americans in attendance.

This, by Sarah Crompton in the Telegraph newspaper today, was an excellent article:

"... Alongside everything that was so depressing about England's ejection from the World Cup, the desperate ugliness of their play was perhaps the most unbearable thing...."

Fantastic, and so true. That sums it up for me. I think just about EVERY team in the finals has seemed more adept, and made the game look prettier, than Eng-ger-land.
