Inspired by cretinous football commentators telling me that the teams were "playing a game of chess", I thought I would celebrate the opening of Euro 2008 by replaying in chess form England's glorious defeat against Croatia, that spared us all the pain of watching them in the tournament.
England kick off with an unusual opening move. A tactic practised on the training ground perhaps?
Croatia are not intimidated, they look like they know what they're doing...
...unlike England. Could this be an own goal?
It certainly could! England's overpaid underachievers have fallen for fools mate! What a choker! Looks like McLaren's days as manager are numbered...
