We were reminded that England needed a win, and it didn't matter if it was ugly.

ITV showed a weirdly emotional film about England players.

The musical omens weren't good.

Our anthem always sounds like we know we're going to lose. Especially compared to that jaunty little Uruguayan number. #flenslens

It can't help our chances that every other country has a rousing or jaunty anthem and we have such a depressing lifeless dirge.

It gradually became apparent that Uruguay were worryingly good at football.

At least the Scots were sympathetic.

People started getting... grumpy with some of the players.

England were on the ropes. Half time couldn't come quickly enough.

Traditional half-time piss.

Nick Clegg probably thinks England can lose and still become World Champions by joining forces with Germany.

We're going to be honest, we're not entirely sure what happened for the next twenty five minutes because we were watching through a haze of tears and beer.

This is painful enough to watch on Twitter. I hate to think what it's like in real life.

And a nation went back to crying bitter salty tears.

So, yes. We lost. Again.

Of course, there's still hope. England aren't technically out yet.

Mathematically England can still win if aliens abduct all the other teams. #WorldCup

But we know what to do.

Right, shall we a get hammered then?

And it's not like we ever really cared about football anyway.

Don't worry everybody. It'll be okay. It'll all be okay.
