What I think is funny is that they think fullbacks are slow... Speed is one of the most important aspects of a defender haha

Never fear, England should be there until full-time after the first elimination game then they will start the next time discussions.

Part of the world but England is not a nation. I think it's the only non-nation in the World Cup. So technically, WG is correct.

Yeah, I get it...just seems odd to even mention it like that...

Someone has some feeling about something for it to even be mentioned like that...

 

England is not a sovereign state - it's part of the larger sovereign state called the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The English are usually considered to be a 'nation' - i.e. a group of people with a shared 'national' identity, and the UK is usually considered to be a multinational union.

You're right, it does read awkwardly. Perhaps they have a pedantic Scotsman on staff.

I don't know anything about soccer, but it sounds like they just said England sucks at soccer instead of any comment on it being a nation.
