Euro 2012: France to trump England!
It’s not the news we were hoping for, but with just hours remaining until England take on France, we’ve already had our own match in Top Trumps Towers and France have won by two goals to un.
Using cards from our new European Football Stars pack (plus a special Samir Nasri card to make up the numbers), three England players took on three France players to predict the outcome of this afternoon’s match.
Things started promisingly for the Three Lions as Wayne Rooney trumped Karim Benzema on Caps, 73 to 42, but that was as good as it got for our boys.
In the second match-up, also decided by Caps, Nasri trumped Joe Hart 31 to 17 and so it was left to Scott Parker to try and hold off Frank Ribéry in a battle that’s likely to be key to England’s hopes on the pitch in Ukraine today. Let’s hope it goes better than it went OFF the pitch – Ribéry’s 7 Trophies comfortably beat Parker’s 2.
FINAL SCORE: England 1, France 2.
Fingers crossed that our Top Trumps predictions are less accurate than those of Paul the Octopus.
