Make World Cup noise with Woy's Boys

THE dream may be over for another four years, but an Isle of Wight brewery might have the answer for any England supporters looking to drown their sorrows. 

Ahead of the tournament Yates Brewery created 'Woy's Boys’ as a tribute to the team selected by Roy Hodgson, who have been knocked out of the World Cup after losing their first two games. 
Thankfully the drink is enjoying more success, with fans having downed more than 5,550 pints since the beer made its Island debut just three weeks ago.

Meanwhile in Brazil, where England are preparing for their final game of the tournament — against Costa Rica tonight Tuesday) — a group of Islanders have been enjoying the World Cup spirit, if not the football.

Tim Ashwell, Matt Bartlett , Nick Bohn and Steve Long were at the match against Uruguay (as pictured below) and will be at Estádio Mineirão in Belo Horizonte for tonight's game.
