Relief for Capello

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

It has been a terrible World Cup so far for England, but a 1-0 victory, their first victory of the competition, has brought them through to the last sixteen.

As the final whistle went, you could see the delight on the England players faces. Yes, OK, well done you made it to the last sixteen. Fantastic. But wait a minute, you only barely made it to the last sixteen with probably the easiest group in the competition. Even the 1-0 victory today against Slovenia was pretty poor.

A team of England quality should have beaten Slovenia 3 or 4 nil. Each one of the England players is a recognised players of high quality, whilst for Slovenia Robert Koren was the most recognised, and he plays for newly promoted to the Premier League, West Brom.

I suppose, at least they won. They did what they had to do. It does however remain to be seen can they win if they play against a half decent team.
