Pompey's 3 Lions

Pompey's 3 Lions

For the first time in Pompey's 110 year history, we will have 3 players starting for England.

Only a few short years ago we were chuffed with 2 Greek internationals!

Pompey fans can watch tonight with pride.

What with the extended rumours of Peter Crouch returning to the fold, and the possibility of that left-back who cannot be named arriving from Chelsea, Englands future line-up could be bolstered by a Pompey backbone for a while yet!

Has the sleeping giant of 50 years finally had a large dose of illegal substances?

Unbelievable stuff three starters and Jamo has just wiped out Kenwyne Jones - which will help the defence!

And Jermain Defoe becomes the first Pompey player to score for England for 24 years - Mark Hateley against Brazil.

When I saw the line up my first thought was '3 Pompey Lions'. Fantastic for the lads & for Pompey. Defoe scores, James takes out scummer Jones, just waiting for Johnson to clatter the other scummer Stern John. Forever Pompey, Forever England.

fantastic to have all 3 starting - delighted that defoe scored! jamo got lucky with his 'rush of blood' didnt he, he doesnt do himself any favours doing that does he and will be slated for it wont he...
hopefully defoe comes out for the 2nd half as it would be nice for him to score again, and if johnson gets forward more who knows!
