Hesky's just in one of those periods where he'd miss an open net tapping in from three inches away. Happens to all strikers, wasn't so long ago Rooney was in the same place. To be honest he isn't there strictly speaking to score goals (lets face it he's never been prolific) in the same way Beardlsey wasn't so much in the WC90 squad to score goals as to facilitate Lineker scoring goals!
I'm sure the unreasonable expectations will start now, especially after such a great qualifying period, but it will be interesting to see how we do against the likes of a Brazil. We certainly look a more solid, confident unit than I've seen us be in a long time, and Germany proved in Japan (I think) that even average teams playing well can make it to the final if they get lucky with the draw.
