Compare that to Petr Cech in the European Cup final. He went the right way on every one. There had clearly been some homework done.


That's probably because it's a common training technique these days. I'm not sure back in 1990 they did that sort of thing because let's face it they were still going out on the dirty beer pop in those days.

Interesting to read what Pirlo has said post-shoot out. Knowing that Hart will have seen that he normally goes low to one side, he does that instead and did it to unsettle the England takers.

Now then, experts, what did Roy do that was so much better than Fabio, then?

A group of Japanese investors have bought shares in Sabadell soccer club worth €616,000 (£495,000). Interesting times ahead for the Catalan club.

Nothing, just cost the FA a lot less than it cost them for Fabio's failings.

He wasn't born abroad.

(not that I'm conveying the epithet of expert onto myself...)

Difficult to say without being privy to training. Kept things simple and didn't try to change too much in the short period of time he had to work in is how it looks to me. Given the circumstances of his appointment to the job, it probably makes sense that a lot of his selections - particularly where an established first choice withdrew - were players he'd worked with before.
Hodgson's real job starts now. It wasn't really about these championships just because of how and when he took the job, though he had as good a bash at it as he could. Now it's about building his own side, a side he can take to the next two major championships.

That said, Asim's point is quite pertinent.
