Geri Halliwell Has To Wait For World Cup

For British soldiers in the Oman desert, it’s no contest – soccer beats pop.

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell was to give a morale-boosting concert to 10,000 troops in Oman for a giant military exercise next month.

Then organisers realized that the concert clashed with England’s crucial World Cup qualifier against Greece on October 6. Now a giant television screen is being erected at their Camp South base.

“The show is to be delayed two hours so the lads can watch the football,” a defence spokesman said on Thursday.
