So then, no football today…

What the hell are we going to do?

Plan our travels, that’s what. Phil and I have finally got our tickets home – we head back to Europe on the 4th of July… to Paris. All the flights to the UK are booked out until the 9th July, and we both decided it would be better to get out of Japan early. Paris was our only option.

The Ball leaves for Tokyo tomorrow evening – we still live in the vain hope of finding a couple of tickets for the England v. Brazil game. Yeah, I know, fat chance… but whatever happens, it’ll be great just to be close to the action…

  2. Less than 24 hours to go – this time tomorrow the whole country might, just might, be going crazy. If you get to see the game tomorrow it will be AMAZING! Best of luck with the ticket hunting.

  3. Miles and I will be watching the game in the pub in Islington.
