Like many of you, I suspect, I'm just settling down to watch England take on the footballing might of the USA in the first game of our World Cup campaign.
I am going to stick my neck out here and predict an English victory, either two nil, or possibly two - one.
I'll be back after the final whistle has blown to update my assessment. Unfortunately, whatever I write will probably be utter drivel (no change there then, I hear you all intone as one) because by that time, I will have put myself on the outside of about a gallon of Mr Magner's finest carbonated apple juice...
Come on England!
Hmmm. Could have won it; probably should have won it, but we didn't convert our chances; then again, neither did the Americans. If this had been boxing match we'd have shaded it on points, but it isn't, so well done USA and well played Bob Bradley.
I think we can all agree that we'll have to improve if we want to stay in the competition for longer than a fortnight.
Anyway, back to my evening with Mr Magner...
