Random thoughts of a Brit living in the Imperial Valley of California

Sweden 2 – England 2

without comments

And once again England show why it is so difficult to be a fan. A great first half, nice passing, good attacking and I really thought it would end up 2-0 or 3-0. But of course its England and it has to be hard or its not worth doing. A terrible second half performance and the second Swedish goal was an absolute disgrace in the England defence. When England went 2-1 up you could just tell it wasn’t going to last; I think few other teams have that trait.

On the plus side it is encouraging that we played 45 minutes of good football, which is more than the previous two games. If we can maybe play 60 minutes next game perhaps we will beat Ecuador and then in the following match 75 minutes…. by the final we’ll be a good team. Not sure my poor heart will be able to take it though.
