"I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once again able to qualify for the knockout stages, to ride out the storm of critisism, and to outlive the menace of tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.

At any rate, that is what we are going to try to do. That is the resolve of my England team-every man of them. That is the will of the players.

The England Staff and the playing squad, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their strength.

Even though some major sides of Europe and many old and famous countries have fallen or may fall into the grip of World Cup Fever we shall not flag or fail.

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in South Africa,
we shall fight on the Pitch,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Goal, whatever the cost may be,
we shall fight on our box,
we shall fight on in half,
we shall fight their half,
we shall fight in their box;
we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Team and our Empire beyond the seas, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, TEAM ENGLAND, with all its power and might, steps forth to our destiny and we get our hands on the World Cup!"

Come on England!!!!
