EUFA Euro 2012
Spain were/are sensational. It was a very good tournament with lots of entertaining football. You couldn’t but be disappointed with England’s exit; although less so, I imagine, than if you are German and were expecting to win – doubtless they will return a stronger force. The Italian supporters must hurt; the players looked as though they did. I know learning how to lose and then responding in a positive manner is part of what life’s about, but it doesn’t make the process pain free. From the comfort of my armchair both Ukraine and Poland appeared to have delivered the goods, the visiting fans that were interviewed certainly thought so. We’ll be meeting both countries again soon enough, in EUFA Group H.
