England, the national football team, will be competing in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Many people don’t think they will fare very well at all – including me.
But, they have, within their ranks, one of the finest players of the past 20 years. Steven Gerrard, the Liverpool captain with the squeaky, funny voice. Captain of Liverpool Football Club AND the England national team. He has put in some extraordinary performances for his beloved Liverpool in past years – but has never performs as well for his country, for various reasons.
Here’s to you, Stevie G. If you lead England to their second World Cup victory later this year, I shall relocate to Liverpool and camp outside your mansion, with red, candlelit Stevie G shrine, for the est of my life!
Good luck, you scouse bastard! 😉
