Ian Botham: England 1977-92 and former captain

England beat Australia by seven wickets, Brisbane, November 1986

Before the first Test in Brisbane we were written off — we couldn’t bat, bowl or field. But we went out and won that and we won everything. It was the best tour I’ve been on — we won the Test series, the one-dayers and the triangular series.               Continue reading

When the decisive blows arrived the entire squad piled on top of one another in the victory scrum. Hugo Lloris, the goalkeeper, had run the entire length of the pitch to join in the celebrations. All the substitutes were throwing themselves into this heap of arms and legs. There were even members of the backroom staff contemplating joining in, and who could blame them? France were on their way to winning the World Cup and a party was under way behind the goal where the tricolours were fluttering.

WORLD CUP: Croatia motivated by English pundits’ lack of respect – says Luka Modric

Croatia motivated by English pundits’ lack of respect, says Luka Modric

 Real Madrid midfielder says media underestimated his side
 ‘They should be more humble and respect their opponents’

Luka Modric has accused English journalists and pundits of showing a lack of respect to Croatia’s players and admitted his teammates had used criticism to motivate them to victory against England in their World Cup semi-final.

Modric impressed as Croatia came from behind to win after extra time in Moscow but the Real Madrid midfielder was scathing in his reaction towards sections of the English media, some of whom had predicted an easy win for Gareth Southgate’s side.

Did Mexico’s win over Germany cause minor earthquake in Mexico City?

Mexico’s win over Germany appears to have caused seismic activity in Mexico City

ByBlake Schuster   FC Yahoo   

Fans crowd the streets of Mexico City for a watch party ahead of Mexico’s World Cup opener against Germany.

All throughout the World Cup there are numerous commercials aired showing how the entire planet seems to come to a halt once the tournament starts. Even better, those commercials show the pure, insane joy that floods a country when it scores a goal. It almost looks like the entire nation is jumping up and down at once.

It’s certainly a fun dramatization. Unless you live in Mexico, of course, where those scenes might feel more like a documentary.

Stan Collymore: ‘The Thing White Men Hate Most is Outspoken Black Men’

The former England forward-turned-broadcaster has become a strident voice on football’s relationship with race and, despite the backlash on social media, he stands by every word

Stan Collymore

Sachin Nakrani | The Guardian UK

Stan Collymore has agreed to speak to me last Tuesday afternoon but it has to be over the phone as he is driving to St George’s Park for England’s pre-World Cup media day. So I call him at 1pm and connect immediately. But the line is bad and I fear our interview will not go well. Or proceed at all.

I need not have worried. The sound improves and, as it does, Collymore bursts into life. The next half an hour or so is a whirlwind as the former England forward speaks passionately, honestly, intelligently and controversially about a topic that means a lot to him: RACE.

Collymore has a lot to say, a lot to get off his chest, a lot of targets to fire at, and it is riveting.
