Well that’s one good reason to watch the ‘footie’ I probably wouldn’t have bothered otherwise, I wonder what position he’s playing at?

Looking at the line up, I reacon this may even by a good match. I think England will lose tho. There are some drippy people and some ex-pro’s, a random politician bites tougue and a darn right scary chef!!

Avatar Image says:

I’ll be there can’t miss the opportunity to cheer on Gareth Gates, though I must admit to not knowing much about football, as this is only the 2nd match I have ever been to.

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

Very cool, but it looks as though England will lose, especially with Luis Figo on the World team. :D

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

Hi I have never heard of Tom who is he. Now if you were saying Gareth I would be wooping with joy. Come on Gareth you show them. JAY.

Avatar Image says:

Well I’m sorry but I don’t know this Tom. Now Gareth Gates I think will be the one to watch. He’s already proved to be a mean ice skater, and this will be another talent to add to his list. Go Gaz!

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

Yay! I am watching that now! I love Tom Felton :D

Avatar Image says:

I think it’s soooo awesome what Tom’s doing to help out with UNICEF… and the other celebs of course. Now’s the time when it sucks that I live in the US, because I can’t watch the soccer game. :( Leaky better let us know if England wins.

To those who asked who Tom is, he is the actor that played Peagreen Clock in “The Borrowers”, Louis Leonowens in “Anna and the King”, and currently gives life and form to Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films. He has starred in community theatre, videogame, radio, and television productions as well. His most recent ‘non Potter’ film work is in “The Disappeared.” Mr. Felton has a history of helping others by: making appearances (Bookham Youth Center), working to raise money for worthy causes (Chase Children’s Hospice), helping to set up the World Junior Carp Tournament (in New York state), and now playing one of his many sports for UNICEF. He is personally known for his humility, kindness, politeness, intelligence, and consumate professionalism. He is Loved the world over.
