I swear England’s World Cup bid is destined to fail in spectacular fashion. First we had diddling John Terry, then Ashley Cole’s injury followed by multiple stories detailing his infidelity (with new women crawling out of the woodwork daily), and now England’s base camp in South Africa is still a building site, just 100 days from the teams arrival.
It’s not just a building site at the hotel in Bafokeng, either; worse than that, there are drainage issues with the pitches and the workers at the site claim the complex won’t be ready in time for the arrival of Capello and crew.
The English Football Association say the site WILL be ready; obviously they have a lot more faith in the builders than I do. There currently aren’t any roads finished and the picture above hardly shows a hive of activity!
Capello will visit the camp construction site today to check on progress.
