The World Cup 2010


Well it all started so well... kind of. There was so much hype for the world cup - people who never watch football bagain to take an interest. There were flags everywhere! Cars, houses, streets, shops and many faces were coloured red and white. This world cup, in South Africa, is being haunted by the sound of vuvuzelas (below), so the match noise is louder than usual!

Oh England, where did it all go wrong! Although to be honest I think we did get quite far, seeing as we did play quite badly for a lot of it! So in the end 2 draws, 1 win and 1 horrible defeat against Germany.

The 4-1 defeat was a controversial one, especially due to the disallowed goal, which should have obviously been allowed, as Im sure every English man or woman who watched the game will tell you! But in the end, what would it have mattered? Is a 4-2 defeat that much better? I think not!
