England’s Next Friendly To Be Game Of Shag, Marry, Avoid
ENGLAND beat Denmark in a game that featured a non-England team playing in front a crowd you might see as mid-ranking dressage event. England were shorn of what are still billed as first-choice players, like Steven Gerrard, who succumbed to the kind of off-the-camera incident all too common in modern football. Let’s hope he recovers in time for Liverpool’s next match.
The match was sold as being about Arsenal’s midfield tyro Jack Wilshere, who would occupy an unfamiliar role in an unfamiliar team and behave like an Italian maestro.
A more valid test for his abilities would be to replace the next friendly with a game of Shag, Marry, Avoid, in which the players are presented to a bevy of WAG-wannabe for appraisal.
The fittest X1 are in the team. The leftovers get to play Austria.
It might not be traditional, but the marketing department that now runs football would love it…
