Hello! Following a football World Cup is a rollercoaster ride for all fans! I find that I have a mixture of anticipation, anxiety, excitement, gloom and despair as a tournament goes on. This could well be the fact that I support England and, as all England fans will tell you, it’s never an easy watch!
However, so far, there has been more than a glimmer of hope – plenty of things to lift an English heart – There have been goals and plenty of them, proper passing and a formation that works! Good leadership from the manager and a captain who is a real star, leading his team as a captain should, by great example.
This picture shows his penalty taken against Panama – in the first game these teams have ever played against each other.
The BBC commentator, Guy Mowbray, came out with a lovely description of the penalty, ‘That was emphatic! Harry Kane set about taking the net apart!’ Long may he continue to do that!!!
Here’s to Harry!
