England lose on penalties, yet again

Oh dear, as usual for my national football team, it's all gone horribly wrong. England are out of the World Cup, losing to Portugal (again) on penalties (yet again) in their quarter final match. Wayne Rooney was sent off after 62 minutes, and that after all the fuss about his foot injury and whether he would be fit to play in the World Cup. It's all academic now. England never really looked like winning once they were down to 10 men, but valliantly held on for a 0-0 draw through extra time, and then the fateful penalty shoot-out which they lost 3-1. There's nothing else worth saying about this from my point of view. So now it's "Vive La France", and especially Thierry Henry (I'm an Arsenal fan for my sins) - well done for beating Brazil in one of the other quarter finals.
