Yesterday, I found my grand-son in a black tea-shirt but his trousers had blue-red-white colours. Is it France? I asked my French grandson. "No, in fact it is England" for the English team.
They have to gain tonight, I said.
Oh, no, they already did that. They are IN!
He was at 9 more up to date as me.
Interesting flag with the three lyons, that I do not know what they signify, but I see nowadays everywhere the flag for the team and England. And yes, I do believe we should not leave a flag to the nationalists, the history is all "ours".
Of course, I am Hungarian at heart, and was happy when they cut out, after 1989 the communists symbols out from the middle and put back in use the flag I knew as child. I am also French and love the French flag and cheered when "we" won the Championship and the Champs Elysée was full of proud people.
So, nowadays, living in London, I cheer with my grandson who wears the English colours and informs me that "we have lost (the French)" then also that "we WON!"
