England’s World Cup journey - by Jamie Burr

Did football still come home? This World Cup year has been a whirlwind for England fans. At the start of the tournament, reaching the semi-finals was merely a pipe dream for the vast majority of England fans, however it seemed that football was coming home straight after the first match vs Tunisia. Being in France the day after the World Cup final was amusing as many smug locals went out of their way to ask me if it “actually came home” knowing full well that we lost to Croatia who they beat in the final. Most people would correlate ‘it’s coming home’ as England winning the competition, however this is up to debate; as reaching the semi-finals for the first time since 1990, having our own go

“It’s always a Belgian” Brazil shock exit as they crash out the ‘Golden Generation’ Belgium

Belgium have shocked the world by defeating five-time world champions Brazil to reach their first semi-final of a World Cup, for the first time since 1986.

Les Bleus then switched up their game plan, launching long balls into the box trying to take advantage of the hei

‘They think it’s all over… is it?’ Can Football really ‘come home’ to England?

“It’s coming home.” The three words that have been surrounding the chances of the English National Football team at 2018 FIFA World Cup. The ‘Three Lions’ are through to their first World Cup quarter-final for the first time since 2006 and look to win the tournament for the first time since 1966. Long since the days of Alf Ramsey, Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton, Gordon Banks and the legendary side that heroically defeated West Germany 4-2 at Wembley Stadium, with the new ‘Young Lions’ rising up to the take their place among the heroes of old. Gareth Southgate’s men have quite the uphill battle to fight with many big-name sides such as Germany, Spain and Argentina all crashing out of the tournam
