#8: Celebrating England’s Glorious History Of Failure

The World Cup is here! You know what that means: it’s time to watch English fans get ridiculously excited before it all comes crashing down, of course!

England’s failure to make any sort of impact at a major tournament in the past twenty years has been a great source of amusement for Irish football fans, and beyond.

Ste McGovern (Balls.ie), Colm Boohig (Storyful) and Conor Clancy (Forza Italian Football) run through each English exit since France 98 to see which one they find the funniest.

The Ultras also chat about their first World Cup memories, Wes Hoolahan’s goal vs Sweden two years ago, and Anthony Bourdain.
