there are some footballing countries who have natural international rivalries -- Brazil/Argentina, Germany/Holland -- also, my home country has a natural and nasty rivalry with Mexico.

just curious -- which country do Englanders believe to be their biggest rival? would it be France?

Everyone, us against the world. icon_wink.gif

I'd like to make a joke about Scotland being our Fulham - not on our level, too small time to concern ourselves, won’t challenge us in any way... but we'll both be watching the same tournament this Summer on the same flipping sofas icon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gif

Germany, Franch, Britain, Argentina, Portugal... list is endless.

I am a traditionalist when it comes to this sort of thing (which is why I don't see Liverpool as our biggest rival). Therefore I choose Scotland. The only downside to it is that Scotland beating us is total disaster whereas us beating Scotland is no more than expected so we don't ge the same degree of bragging rights!

My guess is Scotland. Has to be them surely.

I think Argentina might see England that way too. Nowadays England should be in a category with the likes of... Belgium, Australia and Norway. Or at least under McClaren you should have been.

As a Scotsman, I think it means more to us than it would to the English! I do think we are rivals, but not as "nasty" as the Arrgies or the Gerries!

For me, and this is a perception from the non-English...I'd say

1. Germany

2. Argentina

3. Scotland

If you want to know about Scotland's biggets rivalry:

1. England

2. England

3. England

Scott
