Wolrd Cup beginning to take shape as England fly out

By Harry Hotspur -

‘What you and Gareth have built here is something special, that’s clear to see. Play for each other, support each other, enjoy it, and I’m sure you’ll go far. I’m really here to point out that the rest of the country is behind you, we’re all rooting for you. Enjoy it.’

The Three Lions arrived at the team’s St George’s Park complex on Monday to report for duty before they make their way over to the Middle East. Prince William sent the men’s England football team off to the World Cup with his highnesses’ encouraging words ringing in everyone’s ears. In a new twist, the plane taking the boys to the Middle East has been named Rain Bow, as an alleged protest against the peninsular state. The squad will begin their preparatory work at the Al Wakrah training facility on Wednesday. England begins their tournament against Iran next Monday before then facing the USA and Wales. The 3 Lions are looking to end 66 years of hurt in the Middle East.

It is understood that the facilities for the players in Qatar will be like no other and the England boys will be able to indulge in tennis and all manner of relaxing distractions during their hopefully long stay. One factor in England’s world cup that few are discussing is the cost of the players. England has the highest-valued squad in Qatar 2022 at €1.26 bin, 8 more teams surpass the €500 million mark.

After the 32 participating nations at the World Cup in Qatar announced their final 26-man squads for the tournament, one can calculate the market value of each team at the World Cup. There are exactly 9 teams valued at over half a billion euros and remarkably 3 of them exceed the €1 billion mark. The manager of the Three Lions Gareth Southgate has assembled the most expensive team participating in Qatar.

The 26 men selected by Southgate to represent England at the largest football forum are valued at €1.26 billion. Only two other nations gathered a squad exceeding the €1 billion mark, and they are the reigning World Champions from France and the record 5-time tournament winners from Brazil. Spurs fans’ eyes will not leave their £90million rated man Harry Kane for the duration of the competition.

“Maybe, maybe, the current World Cup, starting in four or five days, can really be that positive trigger. So my plea to all of you is to think about a temporary ceasefire for one month, for the duration of the World Cup.”

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has called for a temporary ceasefire in Ukraine, or at the very least some humanitarian corridors.
