An Ambergris Caye Opiniion of England vs. Italy

It is this reader’s opinion that England were utterly pathetic. Instead of playing for penalties (which they knew they would lose) they should have gone for the win in extra time. Yes, there would have been some risk involved but then they might also have won the game.

Bringing Henderson on for Parker was stupid….the replacement should have been Jones and he should have been told to push up with some of his trademark surging runs in the heart of midfield.

Going to penalties ensured we lost the game with heads held low. I have no complaints.

(For those Americans reading this, I apologize if you don’t know what is going on here, our brand of football contains many different countries vying for a championship, unlike most of your commercial-break-infested sports).
