World Cup fever the media calls it — how to fill up the footie free days before the big kick-off on Friday. On Sunday it was Soccer Aid and the surreal sight of Woody from Cheers scoring the winner in a 7-6 penalty shoot-out for the Rest of the World.
Yesterday, the non-event of England versus Platinum Stars and the Mirror’s poll on which is the best World Cup song Anthem. My vote goes for Vindaloo which isn’t twee or sentimental and works on the basic premise that we’re going to score one more than you. I can also remember the words.
