Lifting the Nation’s Spirits

          A 2-0 result against Poland (who incidentally had already been knocked out of the competition) may not seem all that exciting but it meant that the country has now started to feel more confident about next year’s World Cup tournament. We are all aware that Joe Hart has floundered of …
