I was watching the Bayern Munich v Arsenal game last night. At one point the commentator was noting how, once again, there wasn’t a single English player in the Arsenal line-up – either on the pitch or the bench. He then started babbling on about how any meeting between England and Germany is an exciting prospect. Mmm, England v Germany with not an Englishman in sight?
At least the German side were able to field a couple of players from their own country. And fairly useful they were too.
Of course the great irony is that during this titanic struggle between “England” and Germany when an Englishman (Owen Hargreaves) did take the field he was playing for the German team!
