Ok, so England lost. Not exactly a rarity in competitive competitions. However, something strange happened last night. Despite the fact we can’t seem to beable to take a corner. Despite the fact when we’re not counterattacking we seem to run out of ideas. Despite the fact there is very little chance we will ever keep a clean sheet with that defence.
Despite all this I woke up this morning in a positive mood! Yes we lost, but we attacked. Sterling was awesome. In fact our attacking play was pretty decent all match. Barkley came on and looked every inch an international player. I genuinely think with our young attacking players we can score against anyone. We were never going to win the world cup but all English fans wanted was a team going out to win. To attack with pace and excitement.
Defensively we’re poor, but you know what? I don’t care. I enjoyed the game yesterday and I’m looking forward to the rest of the tournament. Win, lose or draw finally we have an England team capable of entertaining and I for one will be cheering them on all the way.
Let’s get behind this team and see where it leads!
Oh and Gary Lewin, our physio getting injured celebrating a goal? If Carlsberg did irony…………….
