RATE IT! England World Cup Qualifiers

The crunch begins! The world's elite soccer teams are all in action this weekend for the first of the World Cup qualifiers. In two years' time, all nations (that earn a spot) will meet in South Africa for the next World Cup tourney. Don't get me started on Canada's chances...

England begins its road to the WC today vs. Andorra. Our team is in a bit of a shambles with many a regular off injured including {sigh} my guy, Owen Hargreaves (left) and Michael Owen (right). Wayne Rooney, pictured in the midst of the 'Owen' sandwich, is fit and should be playing.

Go England! And yes I'll also be cheering for Spain and Romania. :)

As soon as I saw that Joey Cole had scored that first goal, I knew that you and TFO would be very excited. And when he scored the second, I figured you'd be proud as a peacock.

Normally, I'm not a fan of Chelsea (see how diplomatic I'm being?! :D), but I like to see players really stepping up for England, no matter who their league club is. So, hooray for Joe! (But I hope he doesn't play like that when our boys visit the Bridge on the 21st... :S)

Yay, England!!!

P.S. I looooove that photo. A Wazza, an Owen and a Mickey?! It doesn't often get better than that! :)
