Eriksson said: "Wayne Rooney is the golden boy of English football. Don't kill him because you will need him."
Jesus, how serious do the Swedish FA take mistakes by their players. Are Freddy Ljungberg and his team mates currently locked in small jail cells awaiting their turn with the firing squad?
Meanwhile I hear Eriksson has a new job already lined up. He's off to America. Mayor Quimby in a town called Springfield has hired him to build a monorail. If he convinced England they could win the World Cup by just strolling out onto the pitch then he's wasted in football management.
