The show must go on... and what a show it promises to be!
FEAR not, sports fans, for the world has not come to an end; yes, it’s disappointing England didn’t make it to the quarter-finals, but it’s not all doom and gloom - Messi, Tevez and the boys showed how the game should be played last night, and today, Brasil and der Nederlanden take to the stage.
Kaka, Luis Fabiano, Sneijder, van Persie... goals, flair, class, finesse... everything England aren’t.
So don’t be sad, don the brilliant yellow or oranje, marvel at the sexy football and the Samba soccer, look forward to the next two weeks and enjoooooooooy! :P
