Lies, damned lies and statistics...

Not that it's relevant now as England are already home "before the postcards", but here are some interesting penalty stats. (I heard them on a 5 Live documentary, so they might be made up.)

English players playing for their clubs convert 82% of penalties in major matches.

For German players playing for their clubs, the corresponding figure is 76%.

In internationals, English players convert 66% of penalties, whereas Germans convert 93% of penalties in internationals.

As Fabio Capello said, the "shirt is very heavy for England players".

SR - I think the shorts, socks and boots weigh a bit more as well... Forum Index -> The Coffee Lounge
