The Sound of Sunday on HRB

World Cup Fever

Be honest, you knew they’d come good in the end.  England always start slow and it’s always difficult to watch.  We seem to forget that, but a much improved performance has set up a last 16 clash with Germany in the World Cup on Sunday.

Many will remember 1990 in Italy, but we should also think back to September 2001, the World Cup 2002 qualifier in Mucich, a game the BBC paid £6 million for the rights to show live and BBC DG at the time Greg Dyke said it was worth every penny.  On that occasion of course, England came from behind to win 5-1 with Michael Owen scoring a hatrick.  Even Emile Hesky scored that night.   It was a result that helped Sven Goran Eriksson win Coach of the Year at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2001.

It’s the first time ever a World Cup finals match featuring England has been on during The Sound of Sunday.  We’ll have live updates from 3pm which will continue into Harry’s into afterwards as well as the usual SOS features.  SOS prediction… 2-0 to England.
