Awful game. Would take it if ours was that bad tomorrow though, if it means we win.
What a bore. Neither team looked like they could be arsed. Thought France would at least have a go late on, but they were totally insipid.
Boring game, as usual involving Spain.
Can't see Portugal vs Spain being much better either. Germans by far the most entertaining team left and that's a historical oddity.
Distinct lack of quality opposition in that list. I wonder how strong the Brazil and Germany sides were?

Martinez letting the neutral mask slip a bit. Spanish games are good to watch because "you want to watch winners", not if the games are as ball-crushingly tedious as that we don't, Bob.

- As featured in The Independent.
"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."

Tbf to Spain, it's not like they totally shut up shop. It struck me that they realised France were just so totally pedestrian that once they scored their goal they didn't need to get out of first gear to see them off. All they had to do was go through the motions and wait for the clock to run out. They didn't park the bus, France were just rubbish.
Much better (and apparently more realistic) than Judge John Deed, or whatever the British equivalent is. Though, that's obviously not saying much.
If you get FX, then you should also check out Braquo. Bit more seedy and dark, but similar fare.
