Swedes Concede

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Don’t know much about history
Don’t have comparisons within memory
Don’t suppose we’ll win but we could
Who knows if we’re any good
What I do know is one-on-one is due
And if England can score a goal or two
What a beautfiul game it could be

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Don’t care if we play 5-4-1
Don’t suppose it will be much fun
Don’t know what our chances are
But who knows, we could go far
What I do know is this feeling is new
This England team playing in blue
Hope is a beautiful gift of the free

Notes

Hurrah! England beat Sweden for the first time in a competitive match.

Good to see attacks that lasted beyond the opposition 18 yard line and good to see a fighting comeback. Great to see the likes of Walcott, Carroll and Welbeck playing well and with smiles on their faces.

Playing to win instead of expecting to win – looking forward to Ukraine v England
