England won't be the World Cup champs — despite the message on some T-shirts

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

As you may know, England is out of the World Cup after losing to France in the quarterfinals. Since the gamble didn't pay off, the T-shirts are now on sale at a third of the original cost. The company's managing director told Sky News he encourages England fans to still buy a shirt and wear it with pride. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
