Re: The English football team has a new story, but we badly need ones for the whole country and the NHS

Dear Editor
A considerable number of U.K. football fans are more interested in the exploits of Scott McTominay, the top scoring midfielder (currently 4th overall), Wales taking 4 points from (2nd and 3rd placed in the last 2 World Cups) Croatia and the return to earth of Michael O’Neill’s Northern Ireland team in these Euro qualifiers than England oozing easily through yet another qualifying campaign. Yet somehow someone thought fit to put ’whole country’ in the title of this article . Do better.

Competing interests: Not English enough for this piece of nonsense.
