This world cup has so far been one of the most enjoyable I have seen – the exuberance of Columbia, brilliance of Messi, flair of the Dutch, sheer class of Germany and some of the ‘Scotland’ teams (the minnows like Costa Rica) doing really well. It has also been strange for me – I have experienced a ‘conversion’. I no longer want England to lose … Continue reading Why England lost the World Cup
