Euro 2008: Geoff Hurst’s Guide To German Fans

by | 7th, June 2008

geoff-hurst.jpgEURO 2008 kicks off today and having sportingly stepped aside to allow the lesser nations get used to our game, Britishers are being encouraged to teach the foreigners how to be a fan.

Today the Sun focuses on Geoff Hurst, that tabloid totem who appears at each international tournament to show us his World Cup winner’s medal.

Make that Geoff Herrst, who is pictured wearing the black, red and yellow of Germany and saying who he vill be cheering on zer Hun this zummer.

“Come on you Germans,” says Geoff. “A few people may raise their eyebrows, but you’ve got to fancy them, haven’t you? Their record in World Cups and European Championships is fantastic.”

Listening to Geoff overlook two world wars and one world cup, the hope is that German fans can copy we noble British and so learn to not only play our beautiful game but support it beautifully, too…

Like you, Anorak is supporting football…
