If you're English, then you'll know what I mean by the headline of this slide.
England fans are notoriously critical of their national side, perhaps more so than any other nation.
The reason's for it are simple enough. The players England have produced over the past 10 years just haven't lived up to their billing.
The so-called golden generation has seen the likes of Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Michael Owen, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand fail to lift a single trophy in their entire international tenure—which in turn has increased pressure on today's team.
Despite this, Hodgson's new-look England side has the opportunity to really impress this Friday. There are no great expectations and golden generation tags to shake off. It's just a team of Englishmen trying to do their best.
I think they will make England proud.
