Lucky, lucky bastards.

So Scotland did all the hard work of beating France twice and were cruelly denied by a last minute goal. Their players played beyond themselves in a group where none had given them a chance.

England, on the other, one of the highest paid teams in the tournament scraped a home draw with Macedonia and lost ignominiously in Croatia and Russia, underperforming in many of their victories. But now, thanks to a last minute goal for Israel against Russia and Macedonia somehow beating Croatia, it will only take a 2-0 victory on Wednesday for England to top their group. Heck, even a draw will do for qualification.

Even though Croatia have already qualified, I'm sure our team of stars will manage to put us through the wringer come Wednesday. McLaren out or qualification - the answer is not as immediate as it should be.
