    I learnt never to judge that much on friendly's or even qualifying after seeing Italy in 2006. England fans are saying it's bad to have a boring game and only just beat Slovenia, Italy LOST to Slovenia that year. They very narrowly beat teams like Belarus, Norway, Moldova and got a tie with Scotland. Then they won the world cup so.

    Another problem with our group was having Slovakia & Slovenia in it. Little footballing tradition in them countries & their fans don’t care if they park the bus where as if your playing against a similar ability wise team in Russia or Turkey for example their fans wouldn’t stand for them parking the bus.

    Still doesn’t excuse the total lack of idea’s we show in breaking teams down

    An indication of how weak our qualifying group was: With Greece 3-0 up, Slovakia will be confirmed the worst second place team.
