Plucky England, fighting back from two down only to be thwarted by a deflected last-minute winner. A brave effort from Psycho's young lions. Pleasing fluency at times.

But the crucial thing to remember after England's 3-2 defeat to Holland last Wednesday was context.

There was one doubt about Andre Villas-Boas when he arrived at Chelsea in the summer.

Of teams from the top five leagues in Europe, Porto met only Sevilla and Villarreal.

Weighing in at a hefty 75 minutes, the 33-year-old Villas-Boas' performance was long on charm and self-effacement and slightly short on hard facts.
Fabio Capello's record as a club manager is superb. The England national team, for around four decades, has seemed unmanageable. The derision with which Capello has been treated feels absurd; if there is a problem in the relationship, past record suggests it almost certainly lies on the side of England rather than Capello. And yet, as embarrassing and puerile as much of the criticism he has received has been, for all that he is -- like every manager before him -- being treated as a scapegoat for the squad's problems, it is becoming increasingly difficult not to raise doubts.
