That being said, Capello was tactically outwitted with great ease by the sinister looking Joachim Loew. James Milner and Glen Johnson were crowded out, so no crosses came in. We surrendered both flanks to the Germans. And there is something terribly McLarenish in seeing Emile Heskey come onto the pitch when we are 3-1 down.
Still, I hope the Germans win the thing. Or Holland or Slovakia. Please not one of the bloody Latins.
