Free Lions 161 – Guide to Samara

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

England are through to the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup and heading off to Samara to play Sweden on Saturday 7th July.

The Free Lions team will be on hand once more to assist fans making the trip and we’ve produced an informative and hopefully entertaining Free Lions for Saturday’s crucial tie.
