Following England abroad

    By

    From the France 1998 World Cup to the 2012 European Championships in Ukraine, the author and his friends exude the positive and passionate spirit which motivates many England fans, despite the team's consistent failures. This is also a personal tale about growing older and wiser as the years pass by. The jobs come and go, marriage and children come along, but despite a shift in priorities, nothing can dim the passion for an away trip. Full of amusing anecdotes and lucky scrapes, this book tells the truth about what it is really like following England abroad. Far too much beer is consumed as these fans take in France, Bulgaria, Portugal and Ukraine. From Hoddle to Keegan, and from Sven and Becks to Roy Hodgson, this book highlights the love of travel and of the beautiful game even if we know we should probably be spending all that money on home decorating instead.
