must have been a wonderful atmosphere! i saw only the briefest of highlights, but it is a great campaign so far for your boys!


Thanks Fernando, it was indeed a great atmosphere. What I also liked was that while the French players were whistled at, or booed, and the ref got some stick, it was still good natured.

Before kick off when the teams were warming up the guys I was with and the other fans around us were all watching the French players with a sense of awe and also a sense that we were privileged to be watching some of the best footballers in the world. So while we did not want them to win I did not detect a sense of hate that is so often a feature at football matches.
