It's been well said, "If England got any worse at Football... we'd be French."
Well, tonight we have the chance to test the theory as England take on France in a friendly. Cynics would acknowledge that it may be the only event in the history of the world when you might see the French trying to attack something. But that remains to be seen.
They do say that the Tour de France is more of a sporting fixture than any soccer game, but Reo "No Lips" Ferdinand puts that into perspective. "I mean, what do you call a pointless race that covers 2,200 miles throughout France? I call them the French."
Fighting talk indeed from a man who relied on crutches to get him through the World Cup in South Africa.
No Lips adds, "You see Thierry Henry just scoring dubious goals simply by putting his hands up. But the French have been doing that since 1940.
Fabio Capello is quoted as saying, "Errrr... goal, errrr... football,... errrr... win, errrr... 6 million pounds."
