England Vs Tunisia matchup
The game will soon be with us, so I’d love to tell you all about the countries we’ll be facing! We’ll be scoring points by comparing food, landmarks, beaches, drinks, weather etc. We’ll be say where is the best destination to watch the football in the sun. Who’ll win in the first game: England Vs Tunisia match up?
Tunisia, located in the North of Africa, borders the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara Desert. It’s the perfect holiday destination with its sandy beaches and hot weather. But can they beat us in a head to head?
Ojja Vs Bacon butty
Ojja is one of the staple dishes of Tunisia. Ojja combines eggs and merguez: a spicy lamb sausage in a savoury tomato sauce for a ‘Harty’, filling meal (see what I did there? Get used to those). Ojja is best enjoyed with a side of grilled bread in place of a spoon or fork. It’s traditionally eaten for breakfast or lunch; either way it’s a delicious meal which can keep you scoring!
The bacon butty. It’s a typically English dish that’s perfect for breakfast and lunch which is simply made of bacon in a roll or between two slices of bread with butter. It can then be topped with either ketchup or brown sauce, a debate which will forever rock the nation. Regardless of your preference, it’s still our national favourite for Sunday mornings and a feel good food for when you’re supporting your team in the cold, English weather!
Djerba Beach Vs Skegness Beach
Djerba beach is located on the famous Djerba Peninsula. It’s one of the best places to visit in Tunisia, with clear, blue waters surrounding the ‘Island of a thousand palm trees’. If you were to imagine the ideal coastline, Djerba is that beach! It’s ‘pitch’ perfect which has to be seen to be believed and it’s fantastic for a bit of beach football.
Skegness, ‘Skeg Vegas’, ‘Skeggy’, whichever one you know it as, it’ll always have a special place in our hearts. The beach, on a hot day, is full of people wanting to get that glimpse of sunshine, packed like sardines in a can, with the strong aroma of factor 50 sunscreen filling the air. The atmosphere’s almost like being in the football crowd on a hot day. It’s a national treasure, and with the cold North Sea hitting the sand, it’s always a good day out with your friends or family.
El Djem Amphitheatre Vs Shakespeare’s Globe
This colossal Roman structure, also known as the Amphitheatre of El Djem, is one Tunisia’s most famous ancient ruins, and it’s well worth a visit if you want to experience what it might’ve been like to be a spectator way back in Roman times. The El Djem Amphitheatre was built in AD 238, and it’s made entirely out of ‘Stones’. This 3rd century monument is actually North Africa’s biggest amphitheatre, and the third largest to be found anywhere in the world. With a capacity of 35,000, this place would be buzzing during the FIFA World Cup.
William Shakespeare’s original Globe Theatre was built in 1599, however, it was destroyed in a fire in 1613, only to be rebuilt a year later, then re-demolished in 1644; if only they made their mind up to save the effort. An exact replica was finally built in 1997 in tribute to Shakespeare, and is running shows to this day. ‘To be or not to be’ or ‘to win or not to win’ in England’s case.
Tunisian wine Vs Lambrini
Gris de Tunisie, or grey Tunisian wine, is one of the country’s most famous and unique wines. Don’t let the name put you off, the wine is a cloudy ‘Rosé’ colour and tastes rather fruity. It’s the perfect drink to have alongside a seafood dish!
Ah, Lambrini: the fruity light Perry from Liverpool. A summery drink for when the temperature hits 13 degrees. Whether you’re with friends, family or just enjoying the sunshine by yourself, it will leave you feeling ‘Young’ again.
Sahara Desert Vs Lake District
The Sahara Desert is the largest hot desert in the world. It runs through ten countries and is 3,552,140 million square miles in size. That’s 1,288,515,650 football pitches! There are plenty of things to do here in Tunisia. Enjoy a guided tour across the Sahara, try some bread that’s been made on a rock and finally watch the sunset over a salt lake. The Sahara Desert is packed full of surprises, which you simply have to explore.
One of the most beautiful destinations in the UK, with its famous lakes, mountains and forests; the Lake District is perfect for a weekend break while keeping cost low. Found in the North East of England, it boasts the highest mountain in England at 3,209ft above sea level and Lake Windermere which is the largest natural lake in England. We guarantee this placed isn’t ‘Dier’.
The weather for Tunisia is slightly better than the weather in the UK, which might come as a shock to you. With an average temperature of 27 degrees in the summer, and a peak temperature of 33 degrees, it’s the perfect place to enjoy the sun and the lovely weather. No need to bring the knitwear on this holiday.
The UK weather changes every single day. It’s no surprise when we get snow and sun all in one week. With an average minimum temperature of three degrees and a maximum of 19 (on a very good day), it’s safe to say if you’re looking for guaranteed sun, the best time for a kick about would be in the summer. T-shirt on, drink in hand, there isn’t much better.
Where can you watch this match? Well there will be 1,000s of places to watch it in England, from your own front room to huge screens in parks. Find out where you can watch it in the sun here.
