However, one player's shorts were head and shoulders above the rest - and when I say that I mean it almost literally. Whilst Dan Hipkiss barely got the ball on Saturday he did almost blind me with his ridiculously crotch-skimming attire.
Seriously Dan: please pass on the extra-small shorts next weekend and pick out a medium pair at least - for all our sakes.
Whilst I couldn't find any snaps of Dan from Saturday's England game (probably because he only touched the ball twice) here are a couple of photos I found of him unsubtly covering his man gems:
OK, pretty short but I can cope...
AGH! I take it all back. I've just gone blind.
(Also, check out Wilko's incredulous look. He's so upset he's keeled over in state of shock.)
I now cannot shake this unsettling mental image and I am off to go and poke out my mind's eye with a biro.
8.5 out for ten for this scantily-clad effort. Please wear correctly fitting shorts in future. I like to be able to concentrate on the game I'm watching...
