We drew 2-2 with Sweden. Not a brilliant England performance but we are through as group winners. We now play Ecuador on Sunday. English supporters here at home are a fickle lot.
- We have just won 8 straight games and drawn one.
- We have just topped our group in the World Cup
- We have just seen Joe Cole score the best goal of the tournament so far.
And yet many English fans are moaning we are not good enough and the manager has to go! July 9th is the final and I guess if we win it those same English fans will be saying 'I knew all along we would win it.' That is the nature of the beast. Real English soccer fans are wonderful. Apparently our fans have turned Germany into little England. Who says the English have no passion!
