England’s Euros exit no surprise

Sport News 24/7 By David de Winter - Sports Editor @davidjdewinter  @TLE_Sport Calamitous.  Shambloic.  A disgraceful result that will impact on generations to come.  Far too much play on the right wing and not enough on the left.  But, enough about my thoughts on the EU referendum.  England’s footballers rather ...
