Having failed to qualify for the World Cup finals again two years ago they've only qualified for one World Cup finals since the division of the Czechoslovakia's national football team split into two early in 1994 their qualification for this European Championships was modest and unspectacular.

"I've kilt before and I'll kilt again!"

(First up, apologies for that headline. In my current drug-addled state I'm afraid I found it a lot funnier than it actually is.)

The England squad for next month's double-bubble World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania has been announced and the big-ish news is that Fabian Delph has played his way to a well-earned recall.
