Denmark 4 - 1 England

I'm sure all Englnad football supporters are feeling down in the dumps this morning, England have suffered an embarrasing 4-1 defeat at the hands of Denmark. The loss, England's biggest under Eriksson and the largest since a 4-1 defeat by Wales in 1980, was inflicted by second half goals from Dennis Rommedahl, Jon Dahl Tomasson, a Steven Gerrard own goal and an injury time strike from Soren Larsen. Wayne Rooney scored an 87th minute "consolation" although the nature of the poor performance from England will erase the memory of the neat finish. Much improvement is needed from the players (and especially from the clueless and uninspired tactical substitutions of Eriksson) for the matches against Wales and Northern Ireland next month. Lets hope England can pick them selves up off the floor and get back in the winnining spirit, thrashing Wales should raise spirits, lets just hope it's not another emaressment.

  • That really was the funniest performance I have ever seen by Erikson's Comedy Errors Club. I had to laugh even though I was watching the highlights in an Irish pub in Munich surrounded by Paddies and having the piss taken out of me mercilessly. At least they lost too!
