Is this an English thing?

England has just beat Germany, 2-1, in tonight’s friendly football played in Berlin. The win made it five in a row for Fabio Capello’s side on a night where, according to the BBC, almost everything went right for the England coach, and I would have thought for the England Team.

It is quite interesting then that when talking about and analysing the match afterwards the ITV chose to begin by showing the mistake of the match. England Captain John Terry and keeper Scott Carson clearly messed up when misunderstanding eachother to hand Germany the equaliser. But after all England won and actually played a really good game. Was there no other slightly more positive part of the game they could have shown? There is no doubt a time and a place to learn from mistakes and address the weaknesses but after winning I would think that is not the place to start!
