Geoff Boycott v. The Fens

English interest in Euro 2004 may have ended last week, but there's no reason why we can't inject a little national fervour into the proceedings.

Greece's economy of £81bn and Portugal's £68bn (once you've calculated the figures from dollars into pounds) place them at number 28 and 34 in the world respectively.

Which makes Greece's economy about the size of East Anglia and Portugal that of Yorkshire and Humberside according to the brains that work these things out.

Could be a way of cheering one each side - and instilling a bit of regional pride?
