    my interest in football comes and goes really here, love rugby and always have (part of being welsh), I do love a world cup though and its unpredictable nature, that being said, Spain last night didnt even look bothered when they went out, they lost last week I think.

    Mighty tense night for a lot of English fans though, nice not too have the ridiculous hype and expectations this time around in the media though

    It's too early for us to be taking the mick out of other nations yet especially Spain. Let's win the next three major tournaments and sweep all before us before we comment?

    I went bowling with colleagues this evening. The roads were deserted, the fun fair in the field near Bowlplex was like a ghost town and I had a great time, getting back just in time to see Rooney score. Unfortunately that wasn't the last goal of the match.

    No-one expected much from England in the first place, especially if the pre-tournament friendlies were anything to go by. Spain on the other hand...

    We're not qualifying out of this group.

    Time for the finer things in life like cycling and Netflix.

    Predictable result, really.

    ......and if my memory serves me right, @SiliconAlley_Sam, I correctly predicted the result yesterday.

    Not that I'm in the slightest bit chuffed over it, I'd rather have got it wildly wrong.

    48 years of hurt, and counting.

    We didn't play well last night, it's standard England reverting back to playing boring football when the pressures on. Until that mentality goes we would get anywhere in major tournaments.

    After all the critcism and stick he got I'm really happy that Rooney scored and was without doubt our best player. As I have said on this forum a few times if you play him in his correct position he will get goals and he will be a threat and that's exactly what happened. Sterling didn't turn up, sturridge didn't do much. The whole back 4 looked shakey the whole way through the game. Gerrard was the worst player on the pitch and I think it's time for him to retire from international football.

    He should never have been picked. And the back 4 should have had John Terry and Ashley Cole with them, just for the experience factor and that they are very very good internationally.
