Tonight England and Algeria are playing in the world cup. Every time the world cup comes round I allow myself to support France or England, because I’m half French. After last night’s game, it looks like France might be knocked out. So, obviously I need another bandwagon to jump on.??
And then I remember, I’m almost a little bit Algerian.??
My mum is French, but was brought up in Algeria, and her family had lived ??there for several generations as Pieds Noirs. It’s a mighty contentious issue I’m sure to assume that allows me to support Algeria, and I’m sure Algerian people might not be too happy about it, but hey.??
(To be honest, for no other reason that I have a bet on Rooney as top goalscorer of the competition, I’ll be supporting England really)
