America : Where England Are World Cup Favourites

On Sunday morning, I tuned into the American sports radio station that I always listen to and heard something crazy.

Bear in mind this was a number hours removed from England's 1-2 loss to Italy in the World Cup. The host was talking about the game and said something like:

I cannot believe England lost. They're one of the favourites to win the World Cup.


I genuinely thought I misheard what he had said, but I didn't.

Firstly, to be shocked that Italy defeated England shows the presenter has no clue what he's talking about. 

Secondly, this is the first time in recent memory that the British media has discounted England's chances of winning the World Cup. I cannot see where he got the idea that they could go out and win the tournament.

Count me as still puzzled four days later.
