...England's gonna throw it away, gonna throw it away...

Ok, so David Baddiel and the Mighty Lemondrops meant it ironically when they wrote Three Lions, but it's hard not to be reminded of the line when watching England at this tournament. Jay-sus but that was an awful performance against Trinidad and Tobago.

This is easily the most talented England squad in the last twenty years. So why is their play so reminiscent of Aston Villa's on a bad day?

England has for too long lost to good teams at major tournaments - something which has fooled them into delusions of adequacy. My fondest wish is for them to finish first in their group and then lose to Ecuador.
