England Can Say Thanks to Israel

Israel/England 2 Russia 1

It’s was almost a bit of arrogance by the Dutch master, Gus Hiddink, which could have foreshadowed Russia’s defeat to Israel. Gus said England didn’t deserve to go through. Almost like President Bush, on the aircraft carrier saying, ‘Mission Accomplished’. Way too soon to be making those types of statements. Sure, the phrases aren’t nearly analogous, but you get the picture. And the Gus Hiddink quote wasn’t quite so bad in context, but with news pieces you try to grab a bit more attention and often this is done by taking a phrase a bit out of context—you know.
