  • England embarrassed by Irish

    England surrendered control of Group Six with a disappointing, embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Northern Ireland.

    The Three Lions have come in for fierce criticism of late and the insipid display in Belfast can only heap more pressure on embattled boss Sven Goran Eriksson.

    England were expected to brush aside the challenge of a team already out of contention and way down the Fifa rankings, but the Irish came out with a real sense of purpose and David Healy's excellent strike 15 minutes from time was just reward for a wholehearted display.

    England definitely lacked the passion of their opponents, but they also lacked the quality to unlock the door and World Cup glory would appear to be a world away at present for a team who entered the field with a swagger left it with their tails between their legs.

    The Irish set their stall out early in the game, as they fired into a number of tackles in an attempt to knock England out of their stride.

    With the midfield congested, Jamie Carragher took it upon himself to fly forward and only a last-ditch tackle prevented the Liverpool defender from carving open a chance for Michael Owen.

    Wayne Rooney cut an extremely lonely figure out on the left in the early stages, and he took his frustration out on the Irish, and the ball, on more than one occasion, but he showed his class on 22 minutes when he cut inside and created a fine chance for Owen.

    As a Leeds United fan I thought Healys goal was good, but it sucked for England, they did play shit though.
