England manager Steve McClaren this morning berated the efforts of Pyrenees part-timers Andorra after their unsuccessful attempt to beat Russia last night - Andorra lost 1-0, a result which saw England crash out of the Euro 2008 championships.
The man from York tore into the one-dimensional tactics of the Andorran team, saying that the whole of England had been "badly let down" by the minnows.
McClaren laid the blame firmly at the door of Andorran team manager David Rodrigo who, he said, "didn't have a clue" and "played right into the Russians' hands".
"It's unbelievable!", said McClaren. "All they had to do was avoid defeat. It's a sickener. Basic mistakes, poor defending, and the lack of a top class striker up front - we expected more."
Andorra, who, in their entire history, have only ever won three games of football, and had conceded 41 goals in these championships before last night's match, celebrated their narrow 1-0 defeat long into the night as if they had won the World Cup, but the England manager was unrepentant, saying:
"It's terrible. Their manager should go!"
