We Are Off To South Africa!

Two days had passed since that Wednesday night at Wembley, and as we trudged up the stairs to start another day at work, a colleague turned to me and wondered what I thought about England’s recent victory against Croatia? There have been many occasions during my lifetime when that question would have provoked an emotional rant about what went wrong with the team, and why I believed that England were an embarrassment to world football as well as the nation. I would finish my screams with the wish that I was born in Brazil, so would be assured that my team would get to the World Cup and be a serious bet to win the tournament.

It is not often that footballers annoy me. I like to think that I am a fairly placid guy regarding football and I usually treat the top flight players with the upmost respect. They are performing tricks on the pitch which I could never do in my wildest dreams, even when I was at school. Match of the Day does not annoy me either. It is too late on a Saturday evening for me to start ranting at the TV screen. My brain has been deep cleaned after the Strictly Come X Factor reality mush during the early evening. It is also difficult to get a true picture of the afternoon’s game in a three minute highlights package topped and tailed with a little bit of punditry.
