There is a World Cup going on, in case you hadn't noticed. Watched the Spain-France game last night and couldn't help being struck by the sheer quality of play from both sides, especially in the first half. So different from the dull, uninventive football produced by Sweden and even England. Eriksson's England would have been absolutely shredded by either side last night. Brazil is next for France, and that game is likely to be another celebration of footy joy. I wouldn't like to gamble on the outcome.
