The Murdoch-owned New York Post amused us all with the jubilant headline “US wins 1-1” after the national team held England to a draw.
But, with the US losing 2-1 to Ghana on Saturday and crashing out of the tournament, they’ve since had to change their tune.
Unfortunately, “This sport is stupid anyway” isn’t a line that’s likely to console any Englishman. We’re all still more likely to echo Bill Shankly’s claim: “Football isn’t a matter of life or death, it’s much more important than that.”
