My other problem with the team is that most of them don’t seem to have the hunger to play for their country. Look back at the team who won it in 1966, the were true players, who played for honour not money. They had pride in who they played for, and got paid a hell of a lot less. We have no players of that calibre anymore. And to prove it, if we were to ask everyone in the Premier League to prove that they became a footballer for the football and not the money, and ask them to play for £400 per week, how many would say ‘no, bugger off!’ All of them I’d say.
I’m completely disillusioned with the England football team. However, there are many silver linings. The England cricket team seem to be winning everything at the minute, especially if it’s against Australia, which makes it all the better! We won a ODI series today, which if your and England cricket fan you will know that’s a rare occurrence!
Plus, Andy Murray is still in Wimbledon and looks in better shape than any other top seed players at the minute. England beat Australia in the Rugby Union, and English player won the US Open. Hmm, so basically, it’s just the football team letting us down. Just a shame it’s our national bloody sport!
So, people of England, focus your minds back on the drafty old windows and doors and think about getting them replaced!
