The Truth Hurts
This will be brief but I have to let it out since it’s gotten so annoying.
I’m tired off all the articles bewailing England’s fall in South Africa. I don’t want to hear anything more about that missed goal as if that would have turned the entire game around. I don’t want to hear the gnashing of teeth and tearing of hair and the calls for people to be fired and stripped of their citizenship or the calls for heads that are all over the British press.
England was an overrated team and only advanced because of an easy draw. Shut up already. Deal with it.
Germany exposed them for what they are. They made them look fat, they made them look old, and they made them look boring. England didn’t play *horribly*. Playing horribly means that you as a team didn’t play to your standards, that you were way off your par. Well, they just got exposed that’s what. This team was never as good as they were led to believe they were. That’s gotta hurt.
That being said, I’ll be damned if I ever cheer for a German team and I’m not going to start now. But the current national team is good and now, England knows it.
