The usual rule is for the England team to set off with the hopes of the nation behind it, get to the airport and pick up its duty free allowance and then get thrown out in the first round. But because God is English and likes a laugh, he let us beat Tunisia, a nation that I did not believe had a football team.

If, as can be seen from the clip, they could restrict these games to drunken brawling we would be in with a chance, but we have done badly since they introduced rules.

This is some sort of sporting event, right?

 Of course. It is based on getting hog whimperingly drunk, fighting with the other teams' fans and police and throwing up everywhere.

We are rather good at that.

Unfortunately there is also something about kicking a ball into the other team's net, which really isn't our strong suit.

None of that sounds like fun... and team sports bore the piss out of me.

But as long as you're having a good time, go for it.

 Ditto.  I'll watch a football game or two in a season, but I'm not a fan.  How does one even support a team where players are bought and sold like cattle?  Most if not all the players, many of them with questionable backgrounds, have little or no ties to the community the team plays for, and most players would leave the team if they could for another team willing to pay more.  I just don't get professional team sports culture, why people spend thousands of dollars a year on tickets and clothing and stick ugly team stickers on their cars , hang even uglier ratty flags on the front of their house, and oh yeah, paint their faces in team colors. Ugh.
