The FA have just announced that Fabio Capello will continue as England manager, there had been a lot of speculation as to whether he would stay on as manager following England’s disastrous World Cup campaign, getting knocked out by Germany losing 4-1 last week.
A rift between England’s Steven Gerrard and John Terry are starting to surface in today’s media, rumours are circulating that Steven Gerrard had an affair with his sister in-law & Terry is incensed that he was allowed to be England captain considering why Terry was stripped of the captaincy.
Fifa President Sepp Blatter has said that he will consider using video technology in wake of England’s Frank Lampard’s disallowed goal and Carlos Tevez goal which was wrongly given could of been prevented had the use of video technology been implemented.
So, here it is – what you were all waiting for. England back on form and kind of team you know you have to support. With a 1-0 victory over Slovenia (who you can’t help but feel sorry for, due to the USA pipping them at the proverbial post) here are the highlights of the first (and let’s face it, most important) part of the match.
England have qualified for the next phase of the World Cup with a 1-0 victory against Slovenia, advancing through to the next phase. Manager Fabio Capello made three changes to the side that drew with Algeria at the weekend. With Matthew Upson replacing the suspended Jamie Carragher, James Milner replacing Aaron Lennon and Emile Heskey giving way for Jermain Defoe.
The French national team are in turmoil, having sent Nicolas Anelka home for a bust-up with team coach Raymond Domenech.
Since then, the French fitness coach has quit and the players have refused to train. There’s never a dull moment in the French camp and Patrice Evra has stated that there is a traitor in Les Bleus suggesting that they had played a part in Anelka being sent home.
Europe’s elite teams could all be on their way back from the World Cup in South Africa next week. With teams like Italy, France, England and Spain failing to making a big impact this week then a lose or draw for the teams could well see them coming home.
Holland eased past Denmark with ease today in a 2-0 with win against the Vikings, an own and a Dirk Kuyt tap rounded off the victory and sent the Dutch on their way in this Group E encounter at Soccer City. The Danes matched their European counterparts, keeping them out for most of the first half.
OK, maybe this isn’t fair, maybe it isn’t right – but one thing for sure – it’s funny. When you are feeling miserable then a little bit of humour at somebody else’s expense is always a good idea – especially when that is the person who brought all the misery on. So, here we go – the best Robert Green jokes we could find for you… hope you can laugh between the tears by now!
It is early in the tournament so the complete f**k up by England’s Robert Green may well be forgiven and forgotten – if Fabio Capello gives him another chance that is and doesn’t put him straight on a plane tomorrow morning.
