I visited West
Yorkshire during the World Cup Finals in June 2010, and
found flags in support of the English team on cars, houses
and pubs. The team seemed to be well supported,
despite its disappointing early performance.
When this photo was taken,
England had played one game.
The result was England 1: USA 1.
The team was due to play Algeria the following day.
The result of that match was England 0: Algeria 0.
subsequently beat Slovenia 1:0, to take 2nd position in
their group and go through to Round 2.
However in they were knocked out of the competition in
their next game, when they were beaten 4:1 by Germany
on June 27, 2010.
