    The loss shouldn't really hurt England's chances of making the 08 Euro, there group is a joke.

    England
    Croatia
    F.Y.R. Macedonia
    Israel
    Russia

    This was a foreseeable loss.

    It was actually Croatia's 30 game in a row at home, which they haven't lost.

    But the bigger point loss for England was over the weekend at home to Macedonia that may come back to bite them where the sun don't shine

    England are off to a very bad start, that is for sure. I had no idea Croatia were unbeaten at home for 30 consecutive games. That's some record.

    Ireland salvaged a bit of pride, drawing at home 1-1 to the Czech Republic. The 5-2 drubbing they got over the weekend, away to Cyprus was, without question, the worst Irish performance I have seen in my life.

    Ireland has to be one of the most unpredictable teams around. how do you play head to head with germany and get beat by an unlucky goal and a month later have cyprus of all teams put 5 past you!!!

    Unbelievable.

    BTW did any of you see the absolute howler Robinson let in in the Croatia game... It was a classic
