Commercial Break: Wheelchair wonder runs rings around England stars

It might have been a crafty attempt to lure their World Cup opponents into a false sense of security, but England said goodbye to this fair isle last night with a performance that was more disjointed than Wembley’s much-maligned patchwork pitch.

The highlight of the evening was probably the TV debut of the latest Nationwide ad starring Little Britain’s Lou & Andy, Fabio Capello (demonstrating some very sharp comic timing) and a few bewildered-looking England players.

Hopefully the players won’t have the same gormless expressions on their faces if and when they face Slovenia in what could be a qualification-decider. Unless you’re Scottish, Irish or Welsh – in which case, fuck ‘em eh?

    Yeah we've seen it a million times, but it's still pretty funny :-) Good to see Peter Kay's No-Nonsense ads back too!

    shame he nicked the joke from Adam and Jo

    "Unless you’re Scottish, Irish or Welsh" Or indeed care as much for football as treading in dog mess.

    I thought Capelo was against things like this, with no distractions from the game. That was the reason given for no official World Cup song this year.
