Eng­land’s wags trickle into coun­try

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS - BIANCA CA­PA­ZO­RIO

ENG­LAND’S wags be­gan ar­riv­ing in Cape Town in time for last night’s Eng­land-Al­ge­ria clash.

The UK tabloid the Sun re­ports that the first was Emile Heskey’s fi­ancee, Chantelle Ta­goe, who ar­rived with her chil­dren Jaden and Reigan from Sun City, which is close to Eng­land’s base in Rusten­burg.

Two oth­ers who have hit town were Glen John­son’s wife laura and Matthew Up­son’s wife El­lie Darby, and Peter Crouch’s girl­friend Abbey Clancy was also due to fly in.

Eng­land coach Fabio Capello has banned wags un­til Eng­land make it through the group stage next week. He said he wanted his play­ers fo­cused. In Ger­many 2006, the wags al­most stole the lime­light from the team, at­tract­ing huge me­dia at­ten­tion for their shop­ping sprees and nights on the town.

If Eng­land does make it to the quar­ter fi­nals, the Wags are ex­pected to de­scend on Sun City.

The Sun sug­gested that Joe Cole’s wife, Carly Zucker, John Terry’s wife Toni Poole, and Frank Lam­pard’s girl­friend, TV pre­sen­ter Chris­tine Bleak­ley, would soon ar­rive in South Africa. Colleen Rooney and cap­tain Steven Ger­rard’s wife Alex Cur­ran were also said to have re­served rooms in the event Eng­land makes the quar­ter fi­nals.
