England stars an embarassment

We have been given something to cheer about in Northern Ireland on two successive weekends.

First Graeme McDowell won the US Open by showing talent and courage. Then England’s soccer team got soundly beaten by Germany in the World Cup, showing no talent and no courage.

It was the most abject surrender imaginable, but hardly unexpected given the previous performances in South Africa.

If Rooney, Lampard and Gerrard etc had any feelings for their fans they should donate their England fees to a deserving charity, for they certainly didn’t earn them.
