SUMMER STUFF

GROUP F: JUNE 18: SWEDEN 1 SOUTH KOREA 0

There were a lot of supposes about this game. I suppose South Korea had this cunning Asian plan of luring Sweden on to them until they scored from a penalty in the second half. Then I suppose the Swedes reverted to their default plan of kicking the ball as hard as they could in the general direction of somewhere else, thus allowing South Korea their one chance of the match which they fluffed. I suppose Sweden deserved to win, but by the end I'm not sure anybody cared.

GROUP G: JUNE 18: BELGIUM 3 PANAMA 0

After playing like porridge in the first half, Belgium scored three smart goals in the second and won at a canter without ever looking altogether convincing. De Bruyne had a poor game, probably because he has a face like a loaf of bread; Hazard was frustrated throughout; Mertens scored a beauty but ponced around ineffectively for most of the match. Panama didn't have much, and what they did have was penalised by the referee. The match was played in Sochi, which is famous for snow and urine samples. That's all.

GROUP G: JUNE 18: TUNISIA 1 ENGLAND 2

Thank God for Harry Kane.
For most of that game there were chilly echoes of the Euros, with England starting well, naively giving away their advantage, then struggling like hell to break down the defence of a supposedly inferior team. In fact, Kane's late winner shouldn't be allowed to mask the fact that England have made precious little progress in those two years. The so-called flair players still lack composure when and where it counts, the defence still looks a little flaky when pressed, and if it wasn't for Kane we'd be absolutely back to square one.
All I can say is, it's a good job it's Panama next. Panama are "no great shakes" according to the BBC pundits, and Harry Kane already has his eye on the golden boot. Jesus.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day, to the last syllable of recorded time; and all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing.
