At last, for the first half at least, the English football team managed to perform as well as we expect, and as they do week in week out for their clubs. A goal settled their nerves and then they began to play with confidence. There were some good signs with the team. Gerrard, better. Lampard, better. Milner, nice one. Rooney, still not convinced. Praying he is off colour, and will come on colour shortly so he can do what we all want him to do, however yesterday, it was the right thing to sub him.
So now we get to play our arch rivals Germany, who have not looked so assured themselves. May the best team win. If England are the best team win. Otherwise, may England win any which way they can.
