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?
