...was a fitting game. 'Arry could have managed either of these teams in a parallel universe. He could have quite easily overseen a game as utterly devoid of skill and talent as was put on by and England side as they failed yet again to win against a team that's not San Marino or Moldova.
..'em. A little over a week away from a year before football crazy Brazil host their first World Cup tournament in 64 years and the poor old dears can't even beat England.
