Quarter Finals

Germany v Argentina (1-1) (4-2 penalties) - Good match...shame it had to go to penalties. A good display ruined by the Argentinian scuffles at the end.

Italy v Ukraine (3-0) - A poor start to Ukraine, but came out pushing in the second half. Unfortunately it didn't seem as though any luck was going to go Ukraine's way.

England v Portugal (0-0) (1-3 penalties)
1st Half - Hmm...a bit more urgency from England for once. However, still messing up passes.
2nd half - What on earth was Rooney doing? I'm not surprised he was sent off after seeing the replay.
Penalties....the curse of England in international football...why can England not take penalties? Oh well...I can't say I'm surprised.

Brazil v France (0-1) - The holders out! The French pushed Brazil all the way, and looked the better team throughout.

To be honest, I stated from the beginning that I didn't think England were up to it, and you could see it every match.

Now, with Sven out of the way, can Steve McClaren do any better?

Well, GF hopes Steve McLaren does well, but thinks that Sam Allardyce was a better choice. More passion, more organisation, more discipline, and more science.
