Today as England play their last match at FIFA World Cup – we say goodbye to the dreams of football greatness and hopes of an unexpected achievement in the Summer of 2018.
It has been a summer when we believed for a while that football was coming home. Alas, it was not to be.
We held our breath as you reversed the curse of penalty shootouts and we rejoiced together.
You gave the nation a sense of hope and when all other news is just crazy stupid and really annoyingly boring as well as scary.
Thank you for making us believe we can win – English Football.
