Tonight, I haven't been myself. I've been subdued, a shadow...
The nation of Scotland was ready for the match of their lives. To qualify for Euro 2008, it was simple. Beat the World Champions.
Sadly, it was not to be.
But the Scots can be proud that they came this far, although it will be little comfort. It would have been the mother of all parties if they had done it though.
Nigeria also lost to Australia in a friendly today, in a match played in London. I'm starting to think Berti Vogts is not the right coach for Nigeria, but let's see how things shape up at the African Nations Cup next year.
Oh, and by the way, Israel did England a favour and beat Russia, meaning that England only need a draw with Croatia on Wednesday to qualify for Euro 2008. Lucky Buggers.
But for all the Scots out there, my heart bleeds with yours tonight.
