With England's World Cup campaign a receding nightmare, attention switches to the quarter-finals. Comparing Diego Maradona's Argentina to England, one thing struck me. The English players looked so bloody miserable.
Whatever Maradona's faults as a manager, it is clear that the Argentinian players want to play for him, and are having the time of their lives in South Africa. They look happy. Compare that to the England squad, who for most of their time at the tournament looked as if the cat had just died.
Perhaps Fabio Capello, a man who has had one or two tax problems over the years, should have consulted with that ever cheerful Englishman Ken Dodd?
