England World Cup boost as Uruguay squad’s caramel spread confiscated

England’s chances in their crucial World Cup game against Uruguay on Thursday may just have been boosted by super-sharp Health and Safety officials in Brazil.

Brazilian authorities confiscated the Uruguay squad’s caramel spread as the team arrived for the World Cup.

The delicacy, known as dulce de leche, is very popular in Uruguay, but Brazilian officials claimed that it needed sanitary documentation which was missing.

Some Uruguay fans have already blamed their unexpected defeat to Costa Rica on the lack of dulce de leche.

Brazilian agriculture officials say Uruguay can have their dulce de leche back as soon as they produce the correct paperwork. Meanwhile, many anxious England fans are already hoping the Uruguayans will not be re-united with their caramel spread until after the game on Thursday. An example, perhaps, of an unusual but very welcome Health and Safety intervention.
