   All our supporters were hoping tonight for this final warm-up against fellow finalists Costa Rica, to show-off an England team that didn’t fall-away in the second half, as they did last Saturday in a 2-1 win against Nigeria, didn’t they?

The UK’s TRIDENT weapon system – unacceptably UNRELIABLE?

England Football Team played Slovakia again – another shambles?

England football players Well, well, well, the Football Association precipitously appointed a new manager to take over a failed team, so what did Sam Allardyce do in his first game in charge, eh?

The disgraceful state of Association Football in England – the incompetent Football Association’s name in the frame?
