Israel gives England new hope...........

England were virtually washed up in the debris of Euro 2008 failure, but the tide has turned and they enter Wednesday's match against Croatia on the crest of a wave.

Steve McClaren's men need only a draw to progress after Israel incredibly resisted the surge of a Russian red sea in the second half of Saturday's match and somehow nicked a last-gasp winner.

Suddenly the talk is no longer of Michael Owen's injury suffered in the friendly farce against Austria, mismanagement, prima donnas, and a football-free summer.

Win or draw at Wembley England and all will be forgiven. But do not dare fail your country now!
