I live in New Zealand but spent the weeks of the World Cup in London. It was a while ago and I was just thinking back on it. I know it was hard for English people to have such disappointment from the England team. But for me it was 30 degree heat, spending the evenings in a sports bar watching wall to wall football on big screens. English pubs, English beer. It was bliss. And I met some great people too. For me, it was one of my favourite World Cups.
But, I wish that the Netherlands had played the final with a different approach. On the other hand it’s also great that Spain won with such skillful football.
