Forside/Frontpage
Great Britain - is the motherland of football. Apart from the WC 1966 United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland) has never won any trophy. Characterizing are the physique and straight forward with long passes. The weaknesses are often lack of combinations and fantasy. Nevertheless this continent has produced brilliant profiles like: Stanley Matthews, Tom Finney, Dixie Dean, Tommy Lawton, Neil Franklin, Tommy Taylor, Billy Wright, Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton, Dennis Law, Danny Blanchflower, John Charles, Liam Brady, Kevin Keegan and the goalkeepers Frank Swift, Gordon Banks, Pat Jennings og Peter Shilton. Finally but most 2 af the very greatest talents, the world has ever seen: George Best og Duncan Edwards.
Today of England the names are David Beckham (quite overestimated!!!) - Wayne Rooney - Steven Gerrard - Frank Lampard, the defence-giants John Terry, Rio Ferdinand and Sol Campbell and finally the 17 y.o. talent Theo Walcott.

Storbritannien - er fodboldspillets moderland. Bortset fra VM 1966 har Storbritannien (England, Skotland, Wales og N. Irland) intet vundet. Kendetegnet er den fysiske og kontante spillestil med lange bolde. Svaghederne er ofte mangel på kombination og fantasi. Alligevel har dette kontinent udviklet nogle af verdens bedste gennem tiderne: Stanley Matthews, Tom Finney, Dixie Dean, Tommy Lawton, Neil Franklin, Tommy Taylor, Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton, Dennis Law, Danny Blanchflower, John Charles, Liam Brady, Kevin Keegan samt målmændene Frank Swift, Gordon Banks, Pat Jennings og Peter Shilton. Og så 2 af verdens største talenter George Best og Duncan Edwards.
I dag er navnene David Beckham (vanvittig overvurderet), Wayne Rooney, Stephen Gerrard, Frank Lampard, forsvarsgiganterne Sol Campbell, Rio Ferdinand og John Terry samt det 17-årige stortalent Theo Walcott.
