When the World Cup arrives no matter how good or bad we believe the England players are during the season – world Cup fever grips us all and we believe we can win it!
The rivalries and division of club football we have of supporting Man United, Liverpool, Everton, Arsenal etc are forgotten and we all join forces under the support and love of England and the belief we can win it. We all blast the song three lions in hope England will win the Cup. Afterall we all know what the players are capable of and we have won it before and we will win it again!
It has been 52 years and 13 world cups since England last lifted the trophy. Heroes in red walked down Wembley way and immortalised themselves forever.
When the world Cup arrives Memories re-surface of the great players of the world Cup past and missed oppurtinities and heroes who gave everything for the England shirt
When the world Cup arrives the hype begins – we wonder – will we get the Germans?? The team we have such history with and rivalry who we beat in 1966 but was knocked out by in 1970,1990,1996,2010 and the pain still continues of losing to them on penalties when we had a great chance to bring home the cup…
As the three lions song says – I can remember when Lineker scored in 1990 against the Germans in the semi final. A great hero of years gone by.
I can remember when Psycho Stuart Pearce scored in the 1996 penalty shoot out against Spain and his relief after missing in 1990 was amazing.
We need to experience this success and triumph again. Supporting England has been a rollercoaster ride. There has been lows, the heartbreak of penalty shoot outs, the cheating against us and endless hurt.
People call this above the ‘hand of God’ but never will I refer to it as that. It is the hand of a greedy cheating disgrace. The hand of God is Bobby Moores on the cup.
Heroes have come and gone and wore the greatest shirt in the world. A shirt millions and millions of people would love to wear and give it everything to wear the three lions of England and to win the world Cup. We have experienced amazing moments and amazing players.
but now is the time we are so hungry and desire and need to win the Cup. We have a group of players and who are a great team together and can win and achieve.
Forget about your club rivalries! You are wearing that shirt and the three lions and you are the English boys together to face them out there.
Should we allow the cheating Maradonnas and the rest of the world to steal our dreams and to stand in our way or should we let the world hear the three lions roar??
Gareth Southgate is the man who couldnt bring football home as a player, but as a manager he will bring football home!!
Now have our new heroes such as Pickford and Lingard and Kane. Heroes who are giving it everything for good old England
We have won a penalty shoot out with these boys, we are capable of beating anyone and are on the march to success. They are young hungry heroes who I believe can go all the way and win the cup and bring football home.
And as the belief grows and the spirits rise and England gets closer and closer….
Is it time for English hands to lift the world Cup again?…..
