Players and management were expecting to be greeted with a hostile reception on Wednesday had England´s Euro 2008 dream gone up in smoke on Saturday night. But sensational victories for Israel and Macedonia over Russia and Croatia, respectively, have transformed the fortunes of Steve McClaren´s side.
