Same old England yet again. Four years from South Africa and probaby nothing has changed. The Three Lions got off their campaign to the worst possible maner as Italy deservedly won Group D’s second encounter at Manaus on Saturady night. Cludio Marchisio’s long range effort had earlier given the Azzurris teh lead before Daniel Sturridge restored parity 90 seconds later. Mario Balotelli then grabbed the winner early into the second half to send England back to the chnaging room without anything to show.

Here are the Twitter recations from the encounter

Look good old win is Andrea Pirlo!


Pretty much sums up the affair

The road doesn’t geteasier for England

Perhaps it was expected in hindsight

How can you simply hate this guy?

I want to fly!

Pretty much sums it up!

Need I say more. Classy Touch
