Blameworthy subject sought for Wayne Rooney's broken foot

I quite like this one:

First is the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which is tending towards the obvious but it did precipitate the first world war, ending in the Treaty of Versailles, which led to the rise of Hitler, which caused the second world war. This resulted in the devastation of much of Europe's infrastructure, which led to the Marshall Plan, which led to the German economic miracle, which enabled manufacturers such as Adidas and Puma to dominate the sports footwear market.

There are other possibilities such as the ending of free school milk in Britain under Margaret Thatcher (brittle bones).

The interesting thing is how many people seem to have thrown up their hands and thrown in the towel even before the World Cup is under way just because two boy players are hurt. With that kind of attitude they were never going to make it to the elimination rounds anyway, even healthy.
