"It's like a soldier saying he'll sign up for the army but doesn't want to see any action, then complaining he is bored sitting around the barracks every day with nothing to do. … You sign up for the World Cup as it's going to be. It's not our job to keep them occupied."

-- England coach Roy Hodgson on complaints from players, such as Wayne Rooney and John Terry, on being bored during a World Cup. (BBC)
