Joe Hart made himself look pretty silly with his ridiculous assessment of England v Slovenia

Now, if you ever feel a bit bored of watching the likes of the Premier League, Serie A or La Liga, there is a viable solution to cure it.

All you have to do is simply turn on the television and sit through 90 minutes of the England national team.

The Three Lions are not known for their silky, flair-filled attacking displays, but against Slovenia at Wembley on Thursday night, they were worse than ever.

The likes of Gary Cahill, Eric Dier and Jordan Henderson seemed to pass the ball backwards at will and aside from Marcus Rashford, no England player looked capable of beating a man.

Gareth Southgate's blushes were spared slightly in injury time when in-form Tottenham striker Harry Kane scored a late winner after a brilliant cross from Kyle Walker.

It was, in truth, the one bit of quality England showed all night.


The team before hand was a slightly dodgy decision anyway, with the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Hart questioned by a lot of fans.

The former has been a disaster at Liverpool, while the latter has looked like a pretty dodgy goalkeeper for some time.


To be fair, Hart wasn't too bad at Wembley, although, he should have given away a penalty early on for a foul on Slovenia's Josip Illicic.

Nevertheless, he seemed kind of composed in goal, with Glen Hoddle handing him ITV's man of the match.

But, it seems the West Ham man saved his stupidity for after the game, because while he was speaking to the press, Hart made a ridiculous comment.


When questioned about his critics, Hart said: “Do you think I care about them? I would have a big problem if I cared about them. We’ve qualified for the World Cup. That’s a big deal.

“The guys were brilliant today."


Brilliant? Yeah, they weren't Joe, they were the polar opposite.

Naturally, Twitter just had to have a dig at England's number one and to be honest, who can blame them?


The nation now faces another dull 90 minutes in England's next game against Lithuanian in Vilnius. Surely it can't get any worse, can it?
