It was – as I predicted – a tough game, and it was Wayne Rooney who scored the scrappy winning goal following his two match suspension. It wasn’t pretty to watch however and the game could have gone either way. Joe Hart has made some cracking saves tonight as he has throughout the competition, and the team have a lot to thank him for.
As you can maybe see from the photo, I caught the game at one of Lyon’s ex-pat pubs, and just through the doorway you can barely make out, was the French game. Losing 2 – 0 to Sweden is not a great result ahead of taking on the favourites – Spain. So I’m sure for France barring a miracle they know it’s already the end.
As for us, we take on Italy in the next round. It’ll be hard and I know we’ve got play a lot better than we did tonight, but I have faith. Good night all.
