English media launched a scathing attack on the national team on Saturday, branding the performance, as “useless” and as “shambles”.

The Sun let rip with a variation of a famous Winston Churchill quotation from World War II. “Never in the field of World Cup conflict has so little been offered by so few to so many,” thundered its headline.

Wayne Rooney received zero sympathy. “Rooney in a rage ... his team in a stew,” said Matt Dickinson in The Times.

“No wonder you were booed off Rooney,” added a headline in The Sun. "Toothless Three Lions limp to a bore draw ... and stand on brink of early exit" said the Daily Mail. "Woeful England at point of no return," said The Times.
