England’s kit for Algeria match gets covered in sewage

Sewer spill at England base

If you thought England looked a bit poo against the USA, that is nothing compared to the forthcoming Algeria match. The Three Lions’ kit had to be rewashed after a sewage pipe burst over the kit causing a bit of a stink.

The kit was washed, ironed and neatly folded, and had been left in a kit room ahead of the trip to Cape Town for the match. But the burst pipe flooded the room forcing England’s backroom staff to put the entire kit back through the laundry.

An FA spokesman said: “There are no arrangements for a change of kit for Cape Town. The strip has been re-cleaned.”

First Green and now brown attempting to sabotage England’s World Cup hopes, it seems.
