Despite being hyped up on the eve of literally every international tournament of the last 10 years, the English national football team has failed to impress or perform well when push comes to shove.
Last Euros, England didn't even manage to qualify for the tournament proper, making them the only seeded team not to do so. This, despite boasting a plethora of talent all over the pitch, is sadly just a symptom of a long term problem that has been plaguing the team, the inability to play like a team internationally.
But England isn't the only team that continually seems to suffer this dilemma. Other "big nations" have, as of late, failed to impress and so are quickly becoming labeled as perpetual failures on the international scene.
So which national teams then fit this description? Who are the other five teams that seemingly continue to under perform when it counts most?
Check out this slideshow to see a list of some other teams that will most likely disappoint in the upcoming Euro 2012 tournament!
