Hey England, we told you so: We warned you about Brexit, and we warned you about Hodgson.
England lost 2-1 to Iceland in Nice in the last-16 of Euro 2016 on Monday night in what is probably the worst result in the country’s history.
Former Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson – who is the best-paid international manager in world football – quit his post in the immediate aftermath.
Wage dispute threatening to force Liverpool starlet out of the club
Mourinho & Man United apparently left Liverpool free to make marquee signing
Klopp personally called in-demand star & convinced him to join Liverpool
The performance threw up so many questions:
- Why was Sturridge stuck out wide?
- Why were there no players from Leicester – the league champions – on the pitch for most of the game?
- Why was Marcus Rashford only introduced with four minutes remaining?
- Why was Wilshere brought on?
- Why was Dier taken off?
- Why was Rooney left to toil unsuccessful in midfield for 86 minutes?
- Why did we have four strikers on the pitch but couldn’t score?
- … the list goes on.
The result probably cements Hodgson’s name into the history books as England’s worst-ever manager, thus giving him the dubious honour of being both Liverpool’s and England’s all-time low point.
How he wasn’t sacked after the World Cup is a miracle, but at last, finally he is out. The worst four-year spell in the history of the England football team is over.
