Show your support for the boys in white by getting England National Football Team tickets. England played the first ever international soccer match against Scotland back in 1872 which ended in a 0-0 draw and was watched by 4,000 spectators. For a nation with such a long footballing history and, arguably, the best league in the world, fans are naturally disappointed that the team's last major success was back in 1966 when England won the World Cup at the famous old Wembley Stadium. Can the Three Lions repeat that famous victory and bring glory back to the shores of England? Buy England tickets and find out for yourself.
England's soccer World Cup chances
There is no doubt that England has a lot of young talent coming through the ranks and, with the retirement of English stalwarts like Wayne Rooney, John Terry and Steven Gerrard in recent years, this could be their chance to shine. They will face tough competition if they want to repeat the glory days of 1966 from teams like Brazil, Belgium, France, Germany, Spain and possibly even World Cup hosts Russia. If you want to see how the Three Lions do, then you need to hurry and buy your England World Cup tickets asap!
England's biggest soccer rivals
England has a number of enemies on the pitch, sharing rivalries with Argentina, Germany and Scotland. The 1986 World Cup game between England and Argentina is perhaps the most famous of their matches, it involved Diego Maradona’s infamous “Hand of God” incident in which the player punched the ball into the net. England went on to lose the game and ultimately were knocked out of the tournament. Then, in 1998, England's young star David Beckham was given a red card after provocation from Diego Simeone. The game also saw England centre back having a last-minute goal disallowed.
Despite England's defeat of Germany in the 1966 World Cup Final, the rivalry in major competitions has been fairly one-sided. There have been famous matches in the World Cups of 1970, 1990 and 2010 all resulting in German victories. England fans will stuggle to forget Germany's penalty win against England in the 1996 Euros when current English manager Gareth Southgate missed a penalty to send the Germans to the final.
