why can’t england win? is anyone having flashbacks to the world cup 2006 when they had to fight off trinidad and tobago to get out of the first round? perhaps its arrogance mixed with a bit of smugness that’s done the team in. on paper, it looked like they were the strongest team in a group filled with weaklings. but then england tied -TIED team u.s.a, world police. then they tied – TIED algeria in a scoreless match. mind you, members of the algerian team play in the italian league. so they know how europeans play. now it looks like the u.s.a. team might get out of the first round for the first time in 50 years. 50 YEARS. now england has a whopping 2 points. but there’s still hope for the team that failed to qualify for euro 2008.
