The Retired Bloke

Seville Stunner

This was a famous night in Seville. 

An England team demonstrating the skill

To tear a talented Spain apart 

A performance gutsy and full of heart. 


Sterling a player previously misfiring

Scored two goals, was awesome, inspiring 

Rashford cant get a game with United

Seeing him score I was totally elated. 


3-0 at half time,England in dreamland 

A game to compare to the 1-5 v Deutschland. 

The second half backs against the wall

England struggling to even get the ball


A headed goal, Spain pulled one back

Only one team on the attack

A goal at the death made it a 3-2 victory

Up there with the best in football history.
