Football played with a passion.
England face their toughest test in tonight's football against Croatia in Zagreb's Maksimir stadium where Croatia are yet to lose a game. Capello has stated that his men prefer the away games where there is less pressure on his players.
The new Wembley stadium sometimes lacks atmosphere but surely this is partly down to the football being played. Fans certainly shell out a lot of money these days to watch a football match. Their expectations from today's game are a lot higher. They want to see skills, goals, blood, sweat and tears and who can blame them.
The England players must wear the shirt and the badge with pride and play their football with passion. I am sure that if this happens the fans will return the compliment with vociferous support.
