England football fans tend to be a loyal bunch. Well, loyal and occasionally fickle.

But, for the most part, they support the Three Lions through thick and thin.

However, there’s nowhere to hide during our ‘Would You Rather’ challenge. Opinions become divided but fences cannot be sat on and words cannot be minced.

Difficult choices must be made – which means we asked supporters to choose between Michael Owen and Alan Shearer.

The England legends have served up a significant helping of ‘Twitter beef’ over the last week or so but which former striker is still in the public’s good books?

Would Harry Maguire or Harry Kane be better at bowling? The former’s huge head was cited as a potential advantage by some, but others believe the Spurs man’s record from the penalty spot would stand him in good stead.

And, with England seemingly getting closer to ending their collective years of hurt, would fans prefer to see the national team lift a piece of silverware or witness the club they support write their name into the history books?

That’s right, it’s the classic club vs country debate. And, as always, nobody can agree.

Watch the video at the top of the article to hear England fans tackle all the big questions – and a few obscure ones – outside Wembley Stadium.
