LOL, This was funny.

Why would they be? They haven't come close for a long, long time. If there weren't such pathetic chest-thumping, borderline xenophobic, crazily over-ambitious press campaigns in the lead up to every tournament, the nation would have far more realistic expectations. There's absolutely no shame in simply giving your all and getting as far as you can with the players you have. England need to stop thinking this time it will all be theirs and just get stuck in, see what happens.
