watching that game last night, the more it went on, the less likely England seemed to be able to win, Italy were all over them in the second half, was looking at stats earlier also and its pretty damning, worst possible day to have a bad game looking at it.

The problem seemed to be that England operated on the assumption that the Italians should have the ball, and if they accidentally came into possession themselves they needed to give it back as soon as possible so everything was right in the world again.
The difference in marking was, well, marked as well. Rooney consistently had 3 or 4 blue shirts closing him down, whereas the Italians looked to have a contagious disease judging by the reluctance of the English defence to go near them.

The Italians should have finished them off in the 90minutes to end the suffering.

If only we had won, but the best team walked it in the end

We were only ever going to get this far with the tactics Roy was using. It was refreshing to see the team throwing their bodies in front of shots etc and we looked a lot more like a team during this tournament. Hopefully he can fine tune the tactics and we can achieve something in the future.
Gerrard, A.Cole, Terry and Hart can come home with their heads high.

Wrong manager, wrong tactics, wrong squad, wrong FA.
46 (and counting) years of hurt.
