World Cup

It’s September, it’s raining and we’re playing Wales…

11 Lions - England Footy at related • 0 views

You've got to hand it to Wales bottom of the group without any wins or hope of qualification and they beat our nearest rivals on Friday night. We're now three points clear at the top of the group with a far superior goal difference to Montenegro going into tonight's game.

We've not played Wales at Wembley since February 1983 (the qualifier for the 2006 World Cup was played at Old Trafford) which surprised me a bit because I grew up with the old Home International tournament and we played each other at least once a year until that competition was abandoned almost 30 years ago.

Why Teeboy should have stayed home

Football in the Capital at related • 1 view
FIFA rules say that boys u17 can only play at one World Cup.

Teeboy Kamara is 15 and could go to the next World Cup. He's that young. And at this World Cup he's been played for 15 minutes so far and then got injured.

He looked talented but raw raw raw and surely his development would be better if he'd got to play three games when he was more developed in two years time.
