Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

2017 Confederations Cup!

In the dog days of odd-numbered summers, we hang on to what signs of life that we can find in the football world. So, along comes the Confederations Cup, FIFA's grand showcase for next year's World Cup celebration in, um...Russia. Vladimir Putin will no doubt be on hand - will you?

This year's iteration features two groups of four teams each:

Group A: 
1. Russia - 2018 World Cup hosts
2. New Zealand - 2016 OFC Nations Cup winners
3. Portugal - Euro 2016 winners
4. Mexico - 2015 Confederations Cup winners

Group B:
1. Germany - 2014 World Cup winners
2. Cameroon - 2017 African Nations Cup winners
3. Chile - 2015 Copa America winners
4. Australia - 2015 Asian Cup winners

It all starts at noon on Saturday with Russia v. New Zealand. Bring it on!
