I hate to sound smug but I told you so…well I did!
Last time out I blogged about the significance of England players wearing red against Slovenia and look what happened…they only went and won a game. Finally!
So here we go again…
In red and against Germany.
We’ve been here before in more ways than one and more times than once.
Germany penalty kicked England out of the 1990 World Cup and then broke English hearts all over again six years later at Euro 96.
Is the law of probability suggesting it’s our turn enough to hold onto? Probably not but there is something else…
The 1966 World Cup final. We won it. We beat Germany and we wore red.
God save the Queen.
Next blog: To Pack for the World Cup 2010 or not to pack for the World Cup 2010? That is the question.
