BBC Radio 5 Live pundit Chris Waddle embarked on a lively rant following last night’s dismal showing against Iceland, once again hitting the nail on the head vis-a-vis England’s perpetual predicament.
Just as he did in the aftermath of the 2014 World Cup, Waddle went in hard on England’s players (“they’re all just headphones” being a brilliantly surreal, barely composed highlight!) for failing to match their Icelandic counterparts in almost every respect.
Now this is a rant!

He’s right… again. It boils down to little more than cyclical arrogance on England and the FA’s part.
The sooner we accept our mediocrity, the sooner we can start rebuilding properly.
