Tony from Jane Austen Today had an excellent post about a dream World Cup team from Jane Austen characters.
Edmund Bertram would have to be the goalkeeper. Steady, honest, idealistic. A safe pair of hands.
Captain Wentworth at centre back, no good in goal , tends to drop people, but a reliable defender of Britains shores.
Mr Knightley on the right of the midfield, wise, intelligent, great vision.
So who is going to be the star of Jane’s team? The centre forward, the superstar. Yes you’ve guessed right it’s Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy himself, goalscorer supreme. He never puts a foot wrong. The crowd will roar his name, “ DARCY! DARCY! DARCY!”
