Legends Unleashed: Over-35's World Cup Promises Footballing Extravaganza

In what can only be described as a footballing dream come true, legends such as Thierry Henry, Ronaldinho, and Michael Owen are gearing up to dazzle the pitch in an over-35's World Cup set to unfold in England this summer. The Elite Players Group (EPG) is orchestrating this eight-team spectacle, aptly named the EPG Cup, promising a glorious display of seasoned talent and enduring passion for the beautiful game.

This unique tournament is a celebration of football's rich history, featuring past FIFA World Cup champions—England, Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Uruguay. The eligibility criteria, allowing players over the age of 35 with international caps or 100 top-flight appearances, ensures a lineup of seasoned professionals whose prowess has left an indelible mark on the sport.

At the helm of each country are the founders of the EPG, with Steve McManaman set to captain England, supported by the Ballon d'Or winner Michael Owen. The Three Lions have further bolstered their ranks with luminaries like Ashley Cole, Joe Cole, Rio Ferdinand, David James, Frank Lampard, and Robbie Fowler.

Brazil's formidable lineup includes the legendary Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Emerson, Kaka, Ronaldinho, and Rivaldo, promising a samba-flavored footballing extravaganza. Germany, led by captain Kevin Kuranyi, seeks to enlist the skills of former Real Madrid stars Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira.

With rumours swirling about the Spanish squad featuring David Villa, Carles Puyol, and Michel Salgado, and France being marshalled by Christian Karembeu, assisted by Marcel Desailly and Thierry Henry, the anticipation for this tournament is reaching fever pitch.

Seven matches are scheduled for the beginning of June, strategically placed between the Champions League final and the kick-off of Euro 2024. While the venue is yet to be confirmed, talks with some of the Premier League's top Northern clubs are underway, promising a thrilling footballing spectacle that seamlessly blends past glories with the contemporary love for the game. Get ready for Legends Unleashed—this summer's footballing feast is about to begin! ⚽🏆
