Three Lions on His Shirt

Here we are.
England have a few hours before they play their second group match of the FIFA World Cup.
They lost their first match to Italy, 2-1.
The Boy Child is a believer.
He is reading every piece of football news he can find, including the reports about next season.
For the first time ever, we have the Cross of St. George hanging off our garden shed.
 Did I mention that The Boy Child is a believer?
He checks all the overnight scores from each group and commits them to memory.
He knows who is playing whom, when and where.
I see a career as the football-stats-guy for the BBC.
He has completed the German team in his sticker book.  Heaven knows how much it will cost to try and complete the album.
Did I mention that The Boy Child is a believer?
Three lions on his shirt.
Eng-ur-land, Eng-ur-lund, Eng-ur-lund!

This post from June 2010 also mentions FIFA World Cup Football.
This post from May mentions The Boy Child's love of football.

We have several almost completed sticker books in our loft, the money we must have spent! I do hope he wasn't too upset by the result last night, I know how hard these boys can find disappointment!

Love, love, love that photo of him in front of the shed. And also what a great title for today's post.
Sorry about the result; we are still smarting from yesterday's tie but believing we will go through (against all odds).
