You see, we don't have any signals of other tenses, except "just" for past tense. To my knowledge, "just" is sometimes a signal for past tense.

You cannot choose (a) win because Our hometown football team is a singular subject. And (b) winning is more impossible because we don't have any "to be" verb.
