Phil Neville Bored England Fans Into Submission

The England Vs. Italy game was exciting. No-one told Phil.

1. Ex-England footballer Phil Neville commentated for the BBC on the England vs. Italy game.

2. No doubting his credentials, but his delivery leaves a lot to be desired.

3. He doesn’t seem to be aware this is an exciting event.

4. Or that there are a lot of people listening to him speak.

5. He seems to have forgotten how to sentence.

6. Safe to say Twitter has taken notice.
