A.B.E. : Irish fans explain the dilemma they feel when watching England at the World Cup [Video]
Every four years, Irish football watchers are presented with a tricky dilemma: with Ireland invariably not there, do they support England?
They support English clubs in their droves, but when international tournaments come around, the large majority tend to turn their noses up at ‘The Old Enemy’, taking great joy in their inevitable quarter-final downfall, and declaring themselves ‘A.B.E.’: ‘Anyone But England’.
But with times changing and people moving on from the past, some Irish fans are now getting on the England bandwagon.
Some, but definitely not all.
