Karl Baxter, managing director of Poole-based Wholesale Clearance UK, has claimed his company have been left with thousands of t-shirts printed to mark England winning the tournament for the first time since 1966.I have been really impressed with England's performance in Qatar and was sure they would win this year's tournament. When approached by a supplier to sell the shirts, I simply couldn't say, 'No.'


'But now I've been left with 18,000 shirts that say they've won, and I'm not sure what to do.

'I'd like to appeal to England fans to purchase one of the shirts, to keep it as a piece of history and a reminder of how well our team played throughout the tournament.

'While they haven't won, they are still winners in my eyes.'
England suffered quarter-final heartbreak at the World Cup in Qatar on Saturday

A post advertising the t-shirts on the company's website had read 'Once we deal with the French on Saturday 10th - there will be no stopping the English juggernaut...or at least that's what we think! 

'We are so confident that England will win the Cup this time round, we are pre-releasing our unique shirts'.

The company had initially listed the t-shirts for £29.99, but is now attempting to sell stock at £9.99.

and if they have also printed 18000 France win and 18000 Argentina win. Would it still be funny?

I hope Kane has seen how you take and score multiple penalties in one match.

Not scoring one and sending one up to space to become a GPS satellite.

There are greats and then, there are pretenders. Kane at 29 cannot hold a candle to a 23 year old Mbappe. Abeg forget tori!

I have this tired argument with some North American friends even today...who think England is a tier 1 football power with players as good as anybody else.

France says it all about this.

To be fair mate, in this world cup England stood up to be counted. They happened on Bellingham and that seemed to help them a lot.

Individually their players are not as good as anyone else but collectively no one rolls them over to tickle their belly.

They always have a knack for producing defensive midfielders that can run and run and run.

Based on this World Cup and last Euros, they are a Tier 1 footballing team.

Go back any further, they drop down to Tier 2.

I agree with everything except the last point. England will continue to lose to France and Italy when it counts. Exactly for the reasons you laid out: they can run, fight, and while improved in skill...lag behind the tier 1.

I could be wrong but still feel this way.

And man do I hate the English press. :)
