Very soon the reality of nurses and ambulance drivers going on strike will sink in.

Nurses’ leader Pat Cullen appears to be already wobbling on her determination to walk out over unaffordable pay demands of up to 19 per cent.

He must stay on as boss.
Meanwhile, Harry Kane is unarguably an all-time England great and perhaps our finest ever striker.
No one will feel the pain of Saturday night’s miss more than our lion-hearted skipper.
Together Southgate and Kane, leaders of such a gloriously young and talented England team, must dust themselves down, get their heads up and carry on.

Not least because there won’t be any dodgy Brazilian refs.
