image for England win over Scotland is 'actually a defeat' say critics
Strachan spies on the England team to gage their tactics

The England football teams controversial 3-2 win over auld enemies Scotchland is to be investigated by the FA and FIFA, after various overpaid journalists, broadcasters and ex-players pointed out that the overpaid over-pampered players of the English Premier League should be annihilating the part-time Scottish Tennants Extra drinking trialists of the SPL by six or seven goals instead of the narrow one goal margin achieved at Wembley on Wednesday night.

England head honcho Harry, sorry Hoy, sorry Woy, no sorry again, its ROY Hodgson defended the result, saying it was the still pre-season and he picked out of shape porkers like Wayne Wooney whose been on the beach with wife Colleen since May 1st, and Wickie Wambert, who was playing in third tier football only 18 months ago with Southampton, hence the result looked a lot closer than it should have done.

The former Switzerland coach also reminded the media that the Scottish team have experienced a mini-revival under new coach Gordon 'coppertop' Strachan and ground out back to back international friendly win over Luxembourg and Estonia over the last ten months.

Various news outlets reminded the nation that England had beat the Scots 9-3 back in the 1960s, and should really be winning by that margin on every occasion, especially since Alan Hansen, Graeme Souness and Kenny Dalglish retired.

England return to competitive action with the next four fixtures in the World Cup qualifying group against Moldova, Ukraine, Montenegro and Poland.Scotland face Macedonia in September to decide who gets the wooden spoon in Group A.
