But it’s not all doom and gloom. Steve McClaren is surely on his way out. David Beckham can stop trying to run. And the headline writers are having some fun:

DAILY SPORT:

“YOU MAC US SICK – Cro-ing, Cro-ing gone as England blow it”

“HEAVEN ALP US!”

THE TIMES:

“McClaren’s Wembley washout”

DAILY TELEGRAPH:

“Unqualified failure”

DAILY MAIL:

“A wally with a brolly”

THE GUARDIAN:

“Hopeless, hapless, helpless”

DAILY STAR:

“OUT YOU CRO”

DAILY EXPRESS:

“HUMILIATION FOR STEVE’S SHOWER”

“It’s over and out for McClaren”

“You’re a muddy disgrace Mac”

DAILY MIRROR: “I’LL GET ME CROAT”
“FIASCRO”

“CRO, NO! CRO, NO! CRO, YES! CRO, YES! CRO, NO!” – The goals go in
THE SUN:

“RAIN OVER”

“WE STINK. IT’S ALL OVER”

“CRO JOB TO NO JOB”

Picture: The Spine
