The England manager ordered his players not to dwell on the loss but instead maintain the positivity garnered from the wins over Tunisia and Panama. A collection of sides sufficiently intimidating that in the first half, Roberto Martinez seemed not to want to win, his team counter-attacking with all the speed of a 1967 Volga negotiating the foothills of the Urals. "There's nothing more important than family to me - family always comes first and always will".
"He was excellent on that, showed real leadership and understanding of the big picture".
There have been a number of incidents across the West Country during England matches.

Long-serving England global Gary Cahill, who played the full 90 minutes against Belgium after not featuring in the first two group matches, felt the game was a bit "bizarre," but maintained that the Three Lions were fully committed to trying to win and finish first. Some disciplinary, some have been penalty shoot outs.
"So loads of different reasons, but the main one being the level of the opposition, playing against the very best".
On the hand, Three Lions' star defender John Stones is not a doubt for England's fixture against Colombia on Tuesday, July 3. "We've got the chance to be the team that changes that. We lost once, and the others were a draw and, going back before that, Sweden have beaten England in big games". It looked like Colombia had 30,000 or 40,000 fans in the stadium for their last game. I went to two of their games in Brazil (four years ago) - they were incredible occasions.
Japan are top and need just a point ($3.3) against already eliminated Poland to make sure they are the only Asian side to have a shot at glory.
