Well, there you have it, one all draw and a three nothing pen shootout with Van Der Saar the hero. But nuff bout that, what I found perplexing was the huge amount of empty seats all round the new Wembley. Losing interest so early . . .?
Its a shame as money raised from this game is used in various community projects. And given this was the curtain-raiser & quite a full on encounter between these two foes, I am indeed surprised it was not a sell out.
Perhaps it is a clear indication to English FA, the fans are getting choosy bout when & where they shell out their hard earned cash. If they are not careful, the once electric atmosphere at English grounds could go the way of Seria A - where bums on seats rival M-league attendances.
Perhaps the fans thought that both teams would be tired after their respective treks round the globe selling the brand . . .?
