Fans and pubs suffer together over England defeat
Date published: 20 June 2014
IT wasn’t only the fans feeling glum after England tumbled to defeat against Uruguay in the World Cup last night.
The landlord of the Colliers Arms, Chadderton, fears England’s likely elimination could be a “massive loss” for trade during the rest of the tournament.
Dave Mowbray reported a booming trade during the Three Lions’ clash with Italy on Saturday.
But with England now all but eliminated, Dave fears Tuesday’s game against Costa Rica will be affected.
He said: “If we are out it will affect the whole weekend and the rest of the tournament — not just Tuesday.
Last night’s 2-1 defeat to Uruguay means England’s hopes of reaching the next round is out of their hands. They could be eliminated today if Italy and Costa Rica draw their Group D clash.
