Late Thoughts on Football
Just a final thought, but I do recall saying on the night, as I heard my fellow countrymen (of whom I am not proud) booing the Croatian national anthem, that we would lose. If anyone has any recordings of England's past internationals you might like to research the relationship between booed national anthems and the opposition performance. I hate our national anthem (although Bill Bailey did an excellent jazz version last night) but if someone booed it whilst I was playing for my country somewhere overseas (imagination is cool isn't it?) then I may well play out of my skin, as indeed the Croatians did.
