It is difficult to watch England these days with Harry Kane knocking in hat-tricks but my loyalty to my country forces me to endure watching the Three Lions with no Arsenal players present and Tottenham players grabbing the headlines.
Cheering on England in the last world cup was a serious test of my character when it was a Tottenham player doing the scoring and I cannot wait until that changes.
It is not going to happen any time soon but the future does look bright, I do see the day when Reiss Nelson, Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock, Rob Holding etc will put on the England shirt. When that happens I can then start to enjoy supporting my country once again.
I will not lie and say I do not cheer an England goal, regardless of the scorer and I do feel the passion like any other England fan but it does not mean that it is fun, because right now, it is not.
Some will say you have to support your country no matter what club the players play for and that is true but at the same time I am tribal, I cannot help myself, I do accept that Harry Kane is a world-class striker, I am not blind but there is no rule that says I have to congratulate him and sing songs about him, because that will NEVER happen.
I appreciate it when a Tottenham player scores for my country, of course I do but it also does not mean that I do not despise them either.
This is why watching England is not fun anymore, it is done out of a sense of duty and I count down the days when it is an Arsenal player I can cheer on.
