England can’t hold on to a bloody lead at any level, can they? Leading 2-0 against Italy, thanks to goals by David Nugent and Leroy Lita (who had earlier missed an absolute sitter), Stuart Pearce’s lads let it slip in a big way. In the end England were very lucky to escape with a draw, after being comprehensively outplayed in the second half – none of the English players seemed to have a clue how to play it simple and keep possession.
However, thanks to other results in the group, England still have a decent chance of qualifying for the knockout stages. If they beat Serbia, who are already through as group leaders and will probably rest a few key players, then they progress at the expense of Italy and the Czech Republic.
