Faces of Football: England – Letter to the National Team

to the English national team,

My name is Sarah Jones, I’m from Manchester and I’ve been following the England national team since the age of 6. My earliest memory is with the Three Lions at the 1990 World Cup where we were beaten by Germany. to all England fans over the years.

I’ve had moments that stick with me as an England fan, like beating Spain on penalties at Euro 96, seeing Shaun Wright-Phillips. One of my favorite Manchester City players scoring against England on his debut is another vivid memory.

There have been moments of great performance and moments of low in recent years. But luckily it wasn’t that long ago that it was the former rather than the latter. Paving the way to last year’s European final – qualifying for an English men’s final for the first time in my life – was another wonderful achievement.

It seems that the England national team is more united than it was in the early 2000s and it is hoped that this unity will lead to success in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

My favorite players in this England team are Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Kyle Walker and John Stones. As a City fan, he’s fantastic. To see these international players along with other players do well for England and hope they do well in Qatar.

If I can’t travel to Qatar to watch a match, I’ll probably watch an England match in a pub. Most England fans do, I know! I own a pub where football is important and for this World Cup we plan to have a big event throughout the tournament.

English football fans are special because even though we have experienced many moments of heartbreak over the years. But we still believe that we will be able to win championships in every tournament. Even though we have had a bad year in the Nations League, when the first whistle blows for the World Cup we are confident we have a chance!

I intend to watch the World Cup in a pub, The Grafton Arms, the Joseph Holt pub just outside Manchester City centre. There was an amazing atmosphere here with all the team. And it will be the same with this World Cup tournament.

I think that after England reached the semi-final of the previous World Cup and went to the final at the European Championships, we have a chance to put in a similar performance this time. I think going to the semifinals we can say that we did well in this competition. But as any English football fan knows I think we may as well win the World Cup this time.

England normally play in a three-man back flanked by two full-backs, depending on who is injured. I think we will use this formation, Harry Kane protagonist up front with Foden, Grealish, Mason Mount and James Maddison forming Bukayo Saka in support, another shin who will probably play in the starting lineup. He is doing great for Arsenal this season.

Would be great. Winning the World Cup for the first time since 1966 and the first time in my life. Last year we almost succeeded at the European Championships, taking the next step forward at the World Cup would be fantastic.

The whole country will celebrate The pub will be filled with cheers and good times. I hope England can do it this time.

Good luck to Gareth Southgate and the whole team!
