It could all change of course. There's still nearly half an hour of play to go.
But: England beating Croatia by 3 goals so far, with the latter team rattled and in disarray?
Up to now, even under Capello (whom I'm prepared to give a lot of credit to), the changes in players, tactics and formation has seemed (despite glimmers and positive signs) still rather easy or safe to regard as a case of rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic.
But this sounds (I'm listening on 5live) genuinely inspiring and exciting. Am I tempting fate?
Update: final score Croatia 1 England 4. Do we blame the atom smasher at Cern? Amazing stuff.
