Can you imagine the England squad doing this? For starters, given the current sponsorship arrangements, Jack Wilshere and co. would be bombing around in Vauxhall Astras. This perhaps won’t hold quite the same appeal for a group of millionaires as the new Mercedes.
Secondly, forget your ABS, it would be Sir Alex Ferguson and Carlo Ancelotti putting the brakes on an England track day – or at least their club’s insurance companies.
And that’s a shame, because look how much fun Germany had.
