Reality check for Anglophiles

Sidin clearly smoked dope while writing his version of the England-Brazil match. Which is okay.

As long as all of us know that this is how the match will go (via email from a colleague):

It is just before the England v Brazil match. Ronaldinho goes into the Brazilian changing room to find all his teammates looking a bit glum.

"What's up?" he asks.

"Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it's important but it's only England. They're sh*te and we can't be bothered."

Ronaldinho looks at them and says, "Well, I reckon I can beat them by myself. You lads go down the pub."

So Ronaldinho goes out to play England by himself and the rest of the Brazilian team go off for a few jars.

After a few pints they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the teletext on. A big cheer goes up as the screen reads "Brazil 1 - England 0 (Ronaldinho 10 minutes)". He is beating England all by himself!

Anyway, a few pints later and the game is forgotten until someone remembers, "It must be full time now, let's see how he got on." They put the teletext on.

"Result from the Stadium 'Brazil 1 (Ronaldinho 10 minutes) - England 1 (Lampard 89 minutes)."

They can't believe it; he has single-handedly got a draw against England!!
They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate Ronaldinho. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sitting with his head in his hands.

He refuses to look at them. "I've let you down, I've let you down."

"Don't be daft, you got a draw against England, all by yourself. And they only scored at the very, very end!"

"No, no, I have, I've let you down. I got sent off after 12 minutes."

Hehehe, like the funny punch in the end.

Brazil Vs England? Yeah right, Tell me another one.

Only possible if FIFA changes rules and decides finals will be b/w "Most Talented" Vs "Most Hyped"

Brazil wv/s England???? Possible only if FIFA changes rules to "most overhyped" to "second most overhyped". Brazil is gonna fall apart against beter teams like the Dutch & Agentina. England, the less said the better!!!

Happy go Lucky, I agreed with you completely. Brazil is not only Most Talented but soon to be Most cohesive team.

San, all England supporters will get disappointed soon (today). Then you can join us in support of Brazil or Holland.

Anon, refer response to HGL!
