England’s ‘redemption.’ But who is singing?

The virtuous English are the greatest divers and fifth-rate thespians. In the World Cup game today against Colombia, the American referee Mark Geiger flashed yellow when an English player dived during a penalty kick; the band in the stands unashamedly tried to play “Rule Britannia” and “God Save the Queen” (in Russia!) – but who was singing? England threw its match in the opening round against Belgium allegedly “to rest players” and avoid meeting Brazil later in the knock-out stage; even then the “rested” players began to expire against Colombia around the 80th minute – but who was singing? The English advance after 120+ minutes in a shoot out due to two feet (Uribe and Bacca’s) not their own – but who is singing? The BBC, invoking divine delusions, calls it all “redemption” for English defeat upon defeat at the World Cups.
