World Cup 2014: Just not good enough

I never expected England to win the World Cup; we struggled in our group and in the friendlies beforehand. I was concerned about us getting out the group; it was a tough one.

However, our performance in our three matches in Brazil was disappointing even for a seasoned pessimist on the England watching front. Time and again we failed to finish the job in our chances, our defending was dodgy and our players lacking.

We can't excuse the heat - our Italy defeat was in conditions more akin to the Premier League and we can't say we had a bad draw, because so did Costa Rica.

Roy Hodgson should do the decent thing and offer his resignation to the FA.
