The curse of campbell
It was as though the fates were toying with us. In every crucial match that Campbell has scored in for England, we have then gone on to lose and exit the tournament. So when he scored that fabulous header tonight I was half expecting the inept referee to blow his whistle for some minor infringement, disallow the goal and thus invoke the curse the Campbell whereby England would proceed to lose on penalties. Except the goal stood and this was not England, but Arsenal, so the curse wouldn't strike, right? It was one nil to the Arsenal, long enough in the match to believe it would be. Arsenal hadn't conceded a goal in 995 minutes. This could be the perfect send off for Pires, Bergkamp and Highbury. However it wasn't to be.
So yes, it was as though the fates were toying with us.
