the Britalian Milan site for pure Beady Eye, Pretty Green, Oasis, and City fans

other great people who back the bid

LONDON - Not only Oasis' Noel Gallagher and of course former Milan's David Beckham (Vice-President) and United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron ("We will do everything in our power to help secure for England the honour of hosting this prestigious event."), plus the legendary Paul the Octopus and Lord Horatio Nelson. London Mayor Boris Johnson, Chair of the London United 2018 bid team, said: "There could be no better an advocate than Lord Nelson, atop his iconic column. He, like England's football team, suffered variously at the hands of European foes. His clarion call that England expects that every man will do his duty could have been made for this occasion. This time, with the entire nation heeding his call and flying the flag for England's bid, we have a superb chance of reaching our goal."
Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton: "This country's passion and knowledge for football is unrivalled anywhere else in the world. This country lives for the sport - whether that's in the biggest stadiums in the country, on a freezing, wet Wednesday night in the middle of winter, at home in front of the TV, or even in the playground: we live and breathe football. It would be a fantastic honour for us to host the 2018 World Cup. It would create a huge wave of sporting passion that everyone in this country would love to be a part of. That's why I'm supporting the bid for England 2018."
His team mate, world champion Jenson Button: "England would be a fantastic host for the 2018 World Cup and I'm really proud to back the bid. Having taken part in the Race of Champions at Wembley Stadium, I know that it would be a great venue for the World Cup Final. We have some of the greatest fans in the world and they would create an amazing atmosphere. I would love all my fans to show the England 2018 bid the same support that they have given me this season!"

Kelly Smith, Faye White and Rachel Brown, Official England 2018 Ambassadors, the last one currently playing as goalkeeper for Everton Ladies, she's trusted member of the England Women's team. Notable career highlights so far include featuring in the Women's FA Cup final aged just 15 and being selected in 2007 as part of the FIFA All-star team that played an exhibition against World Cup hosts China.

Kasabian guitarist, Italian origins Sergio Pizzorno: "The entire band is delighted to get behind England 2018. Everyone in England loves football and the tournament would create a huge wave of passion throughout the country. We're also really excited about Leicester bidding to become a Host City. The opportunity for England to host a World Cup is really amazing and the thought of games being played at the Walker's Stadium is incredible."

Miss England Lance Corporal Katrina Hodge: "The Miss World competition gives me the opportunity to mix with people from all over the world. Everywhere I go I see support for the England 2018 bid and so it doesn't surprise me to learn that people from over 180 countries have already 'Backed the Bid'. Like everyone in England, I have grown up with Football and so I'm very proud to show my support for England 2018 and will continue to do so after the final of Miss World in Johannesburg".

Horse racing jockey champion Frankie Dettori (born in Milan) said: "Football has always been a huge part of my life and so to be able to experience the world's greatest football tournament in England would be incredible. I've lived here for many years and I'm a big Arsenal fan and I've experienced first hand the unrivalled passion supporters in this country have for the game. I am convinced that England would be a fantastic host for the World Cup in 2018."

Sting: "St James's Park would make a fantastic World Cup venue and NewcastleGateshead a world-class host city."

Italian star Gianfranco Zola (ex Chelsea): "Every weekend in England is like a festival of football - whether that is in the Premier League or in parks across the country. Hosting a World Cup would mean so much to so many people in England and they would unite to create a tremendous tournament for everyone to remember. As an ambassador for the Bid I will be doing everything I can to make the England 2018 campaign a success."

Another Official England 2018 Ambassador is AC Milan's Robinho, Brazil captain (who scored again for Milan the other day). Singled out for greatness at the tender age 15 by Brazilian legend Pele, Robinho signed professional terms with Santos as a 17-year-old and quickly established himself as one of the most exciting players in the world. In 2008 he hit the headlines when he moved from Real Madrid to Manchester City in a £32.5m record, in August 2010 to AC Milan for £22m.

Last but not least, the Vice-President, former Milan, England manager Fabio Capello: "I'm very happy to become a Vice-President to the 2018 World Cup bid and I shall do everything I can to help England’s cause. This is an opportunity to offer England’s future players the chance to represent their country in front of their own fans and as national coach I know what an exciting prospect that is. My prime responsibility is to build a national team that will compete at the highest level, but if I can also help to strengthen England’s claims to stage the World Cup tournament I shall consider it a tremendous honour."

And many more. If you want to take a photo with the England 2018 scarf, I can give you :)
