Thanks for the Laughs

We're not breaking news here that England have failed to qualify for Euro '08 by losing 3-2 to Croatia at home, but some stories are just too good to give up on.

What this has to do with bringing the Fort Lauderdale Strikers back to life is quite trivial. All we can say is, "Hey, great leagues don't lead to national team success."

Just look at England and Spain. England claims to have the best league in the world and Spain is not too far off. But with one World Cup and one European Championship between them it goes to show that club soccer and the national game have differing contrasts.

Now we won't go into to detail here because this post is just to apply a little more salt to England's wounds.

Oh, don't they wish they could have an American goalkeeper, just one.
