World Cup Build Up Part 2 – England, Egypt & Northern Ireland!

dwc2018

Haven’t you heard?! This year’s biggest World Cup sporting event kicks off soon in New York (New York) and we are here, oh-wise-readers, to continue our write up of our smashing Bees who are making the trip across the pond to play and coach for their respective countries!

Bloggy McBlogface asked those special Bees nine bold, hard-hitting questions to find out their innermost thoughts and feelings about the most important, eagerly anticipated sporting World Cup this year (admittedly, one of them is inspired by Buzzfeed). Unfortunately, some led to slightly boring answers (international dodgeballers can be soprofessional)… but not one to let down her readers, Bloggy McBlogface has the highlights below.

According to Buzzfeed’s (accuracy guaranteed*) quiz, which sport were you born to play? Tennis!
