Well, if someone coming out with that kind of expression to see how St. George Cross suffering an awfully defeat in Moscow last Wednesday is totally mad.

We are not out of it. We have still got the opportunity to get there – I know we have to rely on somebody else first, but that’s football.”
But it’s not enough to prevent his team to win the match and an automatically qualified.The plastic pitch is probably one reason behind the defeats of England. But Newcastle United’s legend, Alan Shearer said that no matter on what field the game is, it looks like McClaren time is up.”I’m not saying he (McClaren) should go now, we still have to play Croatia. But if we don”t qualify, which looks unlikely, England should make a change.” Shearer said on BBC TV after the match.Allardyce now is one of the favorite to take the England job if Steve McClaren finally being sacked, with Jose Mourinho installed as 3-1 joint-favourite together with Martin O’Neill.
But Big Sam revealed that he doesn’t want the job because he is very friendly with Steve and he would never talk about anybody else’s position while they are still in the job.
Well, the war is not over yet. Anything can happened at the very last minute, and no matter how litle is the chance for England to qualify the job is have to finished.
