So you might think Cuba is a rather sad place with not a lot of hope. But that's not the Cuba I saw. As if buoyed on by its musical heartbeat (Salsa and Rumba are everywhere) I saw a Cuba where the human spirit is very much alive.

Not only should James Foley's recorded death be expunged, as much as possible, from social media but other deaths should be too. Masked killers from the Islamic State have uploaded hundreds of videos of their horrific murders. These videos of less well-known victims should also be censored and deleted.

That countries such as Costa Rica, Colombia, Chile and Mexico have all looked more impressive than England makes the inevitable debate about how we need to change our coaching set up/youth teams/b-teams/academies/facilities all the more embarrassing and redundant.

Ben McAleer

If he is failing to maximise his striking approach or enduring a torrid display on the frontline, Hernández offers little more in attack. That isn't to say his style of play is wrong, but if he is churning out an underwhelming performance, then United may as well be playing with 10 men.
