Even if I had wanted to it would have been impossible to escape it in Switzerland.
The Euro 2008
I have crossed my fingers for the Swiss,the Dutch,even the Turks and lastly for the Russians.
We have seen good Football,even brilliant Football,and it has been I think enjoyable for all. The fans have been wonderful and every one has had a good time.
The unsold souvenirs and T shirts are all half price in the shops, and we are going to the last Football Party tonight to watch Spain play Germany for the Trophy.
Soon it will all be over.
I would like to remind you of the famous words of Gary Lineker the great English Footballer.
“Football is a simple game;
22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end the Germans win”
