I don’t know about other South Americans, but I certainly don’t think the English NT is great. One world cup that they won under dubious conditions, with referees from their own country, and no convincing performances since? It’s hard to think of a European NT that isn’t better than England, to be honest. My surprise, as it is every four years, is at how many people they seem to muster excitedly behind their banner with actual faith that this one’s it; which would be fine, if they didn’t do that while acting dismissively to every other NT they consider lesser than them.
We never root for them here, anyway. If we’re going to pick a European team to cheer for, it’s usually gonna be Italy or an underdog (which isn’t England, that is).
