And the Holland England game didn’t improve either. Very little to remember except a couple of refereeing decisions. Roy Hodgson was asked after the game " were you hard done by or just not good enough?" and he replied “Both” which was an honest and fair answer. The Ref’s decision not to award a foul on Jagielka in the direct lead up to the Dutch second goal was laughable but, overall, England were poor in the final third. So, didn’t deserve to lose but certainly didn’t deserve to win either against a very weak looking Holland.
Still, a good lesson for our less experienced international players of what to expect at tournaments. If you make mistakes you will be punished and also never underestimate the level of incompetence of international referees.
