Summer is back
It seems like it is going to be a nice hot sunny weekend.
I am taking the 10.07 ICE train to Cologne, booked in advance with a 50% discount. Taking my tent, sleeping bag and light clothes in a rucksack, hoping to picth down somewhere for a couple of nights. Also taking the camera to capture some of the around the games. Will probably pop down to Gelsenkirchen tomorrow, where England are playing, but only if there are not too many hooligans around.
The winners I would like to see come through are:
Argentina - played best football of tournament so far
Italy - deserve some luck and their attcking style should be rewarded
England - cos its Engerland and I'm English
Brazil - because they are capable of great football
However, I wouldn't be surprised to see the home team sneak a win from the Argentineans, or to see Portugal edge out England with a messy goal.
We will see.
