I laughed yesterday when I heard Steve McClaren, the England Manager, saying that qualification for the European Football Championships is decided over 12 games, not one, and that there were many more twists to come yet. The phrase "clutching at straws" came to mind. And then what goes and happens ? Israel beat Russia and all England need is a draw to qualify now.
It makes McClaren seem like some sort of visionary genius now. The only problem is, now that England only need a draw, what chance is there that we will still lose against Croatia ?
