More likely, it is my use of the word "England" that trips you up. When I say "England" I don't mean the province, but the country as a whole, which is officially called something along the lines of "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland", but that takes entirely too long to say so we just say "England". This is the primary meaning of the word "England" throughout pretty much the entire western hemisphere and much of the rest of the world.

Nice use of the royal we there, but it's not correct. 'We' call the island "Great Britain", and the UK of GB & NI "Britain" if we want to shorten the name. Calling the whole show England is not only incorrect, it irritates people.
