Advantages Better than no team to support
Disadvantages England are not in it.
Well I was as shocked and dissapointed as any when england didn't qualify for the EURO 2008. At the time I swore I wouldnt watch the football tournament out of spite. But now its here I have chosen where my loyalties lay.Nomally, and i'm sure im not the only one, when england are knocked out which the usually are. I am forced to support or closest teams Scotland or Ireland. But alas they too were denied the oppertunity to the EURO 08 footy. So this time I have put my faith and support behind the country that I like to think of as my second home. True in blue, those bagette wielding french.
3 days ago I was there sunning myself (or not) in my second home in le France. I went to buy a barbaque from the local Super U (typical brits wanting a barbaque as soon as the sun is out). When I was there I saw an official france 2008 shirt for 8 euros. So needless to say I snapped it up.So this time I am putting my wieght behind the french in blue (or white depending).
BUT a question I often ask myself, will it be full of as many hotheaded outbursts from the french team as last time they were in a major international competition? I am of course reffering to the fiasco concerning Zinedine Zidane and his memrobal head but. WIll the french team be the same without my mums sweet heart zidane? I dont know but he was a true asset to the french team with his experience and shiny bald head.So I say I am supporting france this time round but who is it in this team I am supporting. Well here is the EURO 08 line up for the french team:
OK end of you all hate me now because we should stick with england all the way. But they are not in it, it brings me to tears...
My main ambition for my team of choice in the EURO 08 is this:
France for Euro 08
