There is less than a month to go before the remaining football teams compete for the title of world champions. England last won the Cup in 1966 and there has never been a better opportunity to repeat this achievement than in 2010.

The Barclays Premier League is extremely popular in South Africa and the stands are guaranteed to be full of Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal colours when the English side takes the field.

Transform your garden into a dedicated ‘Football Fan Zone’ with a wide selection of garden tools and outdoor accessories. Invite the neighbours, friends, family and fellow football fans for a barbecue and make the most of the English summer whilst supporting the team. Be sure to capture all the excitement and the moment of victory using a digital camcorder. Celebrate the victories late into the night after enjoying the games and a delicious barbecue dinner.

The England side offers fans more hope than ever with one of the most talented squads participating in the tournament. With Wayne Rooney spearheading an attack supported by Frank Lampard, Ashley Young, James Milner and Steven Gerrard, England has the ability to dominate any opponent they face. With a midfield that roams freely, a stout defence is imperative. Rio Ferdinand and John Terry provide the solidity required to ensure no gaping holes form in the middle of the park. With two of the best fullbacks in the game today in Ashley Cole and Glen Johnson, the side will also not be lacking in width and quality crosses for the goal-hungry midfielders and strikers to prey on.

Coach Fabio Capello has given England a tactical advantage by selecting the Royal Bafokeng Stadium as the team’s ‘home base’. Its altitude provides the opportunity for players to acclimatise to the lower levels of oxygen in the in-land atmosphere. Following a training camp in Austria to acclimatise to high altitude conditions, the side should be fully prepared. The Royal Bafokeng Stadium was voted the best training facility in the country and England’s decision to make it the side’s ‘home away from home’ speaks volumes of their intentions.

As the football kicks off soon, now is the time to take full advantage of the unbeatable deals on offer at the Empire Stores Football Fever promotion. Give your garden a facelift by creating a dedicated ‘Supporter Zone’ during the tournament and provide your support for the English side. When it’s all said and done and the African dust has settled, your upgraded garden will still be there for you to enjoy with friends and family.
