The World Cup in England has been marred by many anti-sportsmanlike events, to the extent that observers have not found it embarrassing to call it the “World Cup of Football Violence”, but care, with all care, has been around the gloves to prevent Queen. Queen Elizabeth II, as she handed the cup to her winning sons, captain Bobby Moore wiped his gloves in his shirt and shorts with a special towel from the royal podium at Wembley Stadium, before Her Excellency shook hands, so the Queen’s glove remained pure white, unlike the World Cup!
After 36 years, specifically in the 2002 World Cup, the England team was weak on the day of Queen Elizabeth’s golden jubilee celebrations, struggling to score a draw against Sweden thanks to a David Beckham penalty, which from an outcast to a hero, but the quarter-final against Brazil was titled: Coffee No Tea.
