Poor England! The sacred headquarters of world football. Dotted with football cathedrals and sanctuaries. Poor England. Where great football is played each week. Yet when it matters most, England, poor England gets buried. Buried by the great footballers it gives space to play in its football arenas. As I type this, I look around the room, far away here in Nigeria. I see long faces of disappointed fans as England gets unravelled again. (Written, June 19, 2014).
