HAPPY TALK: England to crash out!

Car insurance companies in the UK will be pleased if England crash out of the World Cup in the early stages.

Based on information collated from the 2006 tournament it appears that England's drivers crash their cars more often on England match days.  In 2006 incidents leapt by some 14% generally during the whole tournament.  Accident figures when England played against Portugal and lost on penalties rose by over 51%.
There are no reported figures for Scotland!
