England’s wags trickle into country
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.
