The venue was Belo Horizonte in Brazil. England -- you know, the mighty England who essentially invented the game and came up with the rules -- had never taken part in a World Cup before, either refusing to travel the vast distances involved or, more likely, just finding the entire shindig beneath them. Well they showed up in 1950, promptly installed as 3/1 favorites in the eyes of the bookmakers, led by arguably the greatest player in the world, Stanley Matthews, though he didn't even play in the match. But they did have legendary captain Billy Wright and fearsome forwards Tom Finney and Stan Mortensen.


Hi folks:

This is some tale of England football, and the bold part upward, I assume the shindig is refer to the World cup, and why is the World cup beneath them?
Geology map things? Like Australia down under?



Thanks beforehand
