A much-changed England side played out an uninspiring 0-0 draw with Slovakia on Monday night a result that sees Roy Hodgson’s charges finish second in Group B, a point behind Wales.
England ‘keeper Joe Hart remained bullish after the stalemate, claiming (a tad arrogantly) that he’s ‘not had anything to do’ in the competition so far. Here’s what he said:
We all wanted to finish top but we didn’t. We have dominated every corner of the pitch and every Slovakian player will be proud of that result.
We are into the next round and nobody will want to play us. I haven’t had anything to do in the whole tournament to be honest, we have been playing very well as a team.
Unsurprisingly, his utter ricket against Wales does come to mind as something the Manchester City did have to do (but failed miserably)…

As for the Three Lions, they’ll now face the second-placed team from Group F, which could still be any one of Portugal, Austria, Hungary or Iceland. It could be worse!
