British Football Team 英国国家球队

Hello. My name is Xu He Qiucen. I am from Chongqing University. I love this programme very much. And I have a question. When we watch football games, why we always see England, Scotland, Wales, but not Britain? And what do British people think about it?

During the Olympics the United Kingdom competes together as Team GB, but this isn't the case for football.

Xu He Qiucen asks why Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland play separately when it comes to football.

Finn says he thinks a British football team might be a good idea for London 2012, but is worried there wouldn't be many Scottish players in it!

Also hear from one Northern Irish man who thinks British footballers would have more success internationally if they joined together.

Listen out for these words:

British athletes

The UK competes together in the Olympics but not in football

Rivalry

Nationalistic

Condense

World-class

Do you have a question about Britain? 你有没有对英国的疑问?
