England: We Were Playing A Different Game

Bill Hack chief football correspondent

England have admitted they ‘were playing a different game’ in their opening World Cup match against the United States of America.

England were heavily criticised following the 1-1 draw with America and some commentators accused them of playing a different game to everyone else.

This lead to confusion within the England camp – and they have now confirmed that they were playing a different game.

“Of course we were playing a different game – we were playing the Americans at football,” said a source.

“We had to send the ball long and hit our target man Emile Heskey in the end zone, or ‘penalty area’.

“American football is a simple game.”
