The World Cup

I am really enjoying watching The World Cup!

Before it started, I was a little apprehensive and nervous about England’s performance. I think that supporting England is a tough job because we always remember the excitement,  high hopes and expectations when watching England play.  But, we are often left feeling disappointed and dis-heartened when we see England under perform and get knocked out too early.

However, this time I think they have the potential to go far! We have an excellent squad and have played really well so far, especially beating Panama 6-1 !

COME ON ENGLAND!
