Half-time England 0-0 Scotland
Well how entirely predictable was that shower of ......?
Sideways, backwards, sideways.... slow, laboured, predictable.
So dull, so pathetic, so lacking in invention, so devoid of skill, so.... England. Every tournament, the same load of toss.
Everytime an England defender gets the ball you can visibly see the Scottish defenders panic. "Where is this next pass going?" "Who do I mark now?" "Where do I position myself for the best?"..... Er sorry, did I say panic? No the Scottish defenders take a well earned breather knowing full well England will pass it backwards or sideways or backwards and sideways for a change......
If Scotland win this, then they will deserve it because at least they could be arsed to turn up and give the game the passion and commitment it deserves. What was my scenario 2?
We beat Croatia, fall over ourselves with ridiculously mis-placed optimism and draw or lose with Scotland. We manage to do enough against Czech to qualify. Result: we make it to last 16 but fail to top the group and so lose home advantage and tamely lose to Spain, Poland or Sweden in the round of the last 16.

England expects that every man will do his duty. Horatio Nelson October 1805
