Buy England and France shirts

Every two years, the question comes up whether England is a good football team or not. It’s ridiculous really, but England always has to prove themselves, not only to the press and soccer fans abroad, but even to the England supporters in their home country too.

Today, England faces a stern test against a French side that has been lauded by the soccer aficionados and British press. It’s a team that, on paper, should trounce England.

But we all know that soccer matches are more complicated than that, or are they?

England team: Hart, Johnson, Terry, Lescott, Cole, Milner, Gerrard, Parker, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Young, Welbeck

France team: Lloris, Debuchy, Rami, Mexes, Evra, Nasri, Cabaye Diarra, Malouda, Ribery, Benzema.

Join us today before, during and after England’s first match of Euro 2012. Post your rants, raves, observations and questions in the comments section below.
