a big weekend for sport

Normal service was resumed in the RWC last night I guess with France’s win over Ireland. At least England aren’t the only lacklustre team in the tournament. Ireland can still qualify for the QF’s but I wouldn’t put the house on them doing it. I think they might struggle against the Argies. But what of England? They ought to beat Samoa but they’re probably the last team you’d want to play against when confidence and spirit is low. It could be a bruising encounter but time for our key guys to stand up and be counted. No problems on that score with the England’s women’s team who have been brilliant at the Women’s Football World Cup pasting Argentina and drawing against the mighty Germans. Next match up against WC holders USA. Come on you girls. And finally the most mouth-watering contest of the week-end, Man U versus the Avram-led Russia FC. Can’t wait. Let’s hope it’s a special one.
