What a bobble?

Errors, mis-judgements and pure bad luck. That is the summing up for England's dissapointing qualifying game against Croatia which ended in a 2-0 embarrasment. With such expectation being raised on new boss Steve McClaren, it was back to the good old days of lacklustre and pure frustration for England fans. The first goal came in the second half from a set piece which was poorly defended by McClaren's 3-5-2 formation with goalkeeper Paul Robinson off his line. Gary Neville, who has never scored a goal for England, had all his nightmares came true with the second goal, which was a backpass to Robinson which somehow ended up in the back of the net. Croatia played with a belief that they could get the 3 points and with a little help from a dishevelled England side, never really comfortable in the formation handed the game to Croatia on a plate. McClaren's decision to play the 3-5-2 formation will certainly be the focus of discussion over the next few weeks, as pundits will be analysing his abilities and management style. England still remain top of the group, but the team are walking a tightrope having drawn and lost their last two games. Same old story, same old England.
