Not only did another defender stick one in the bag o’ onions, well… with a little assistance from the Danish keeper, but Owen opens his World Cup score sheet and… jeepers, bleeding creepers… HESKEY slipped one in! The Danes though, had little in response.

Bring on the Brazileros.

    Come on! Being there is in a different league – just feeling dizzy thinking about it – or is that the lack of sleep and excess alcohol?

    I think I know the answer to that one.

    Good luck to everyone who sees the Brazil game.

    You lucky, lucky people.

  2. It was indeed a fine game – Tim, I’m jealous you were there!

    England looked in control of it for most of the time, although the Danes looked, um, agricultural (thanks to Tim Lister at CNN for this latest commentator’s buzzword) at the best of times. Our Brazilian compadres here in Seoul reckon it was too easy. Come on then! We’ll see you in the quarter finals – if you make it ;-)

    England and Germany now through to the next round. Now there’s a thing…

  3. So American at CNN. Any fule kno ‘agricultural’ is a cricketing term.

  4. Tim Lister is an Englishman. From sunny Watford, if I remember correctly :-)
