Well then, we’ll take a short break from “The Tournament” to bring you a Toronto FC update. They won a game! And comprehensively no less: 3-0 against the Montreal Impact in Montreal. So a crushing away win, no less. I could speak here of an outlier, but the pertinent fact is that Paul Mariner has got this team scoring goals, and it was only a matter of time and perhaps a bit of defensive organization for them not to concede. I’m cool with Mariner. He may end up being Toronto’s best ever coach.
And what’s more, Alessandro Nesta is now (god I hate this turn of phrase) “strongly linked” with TFC. In true Major League Soccer fashion, one day you’re eating cat food in a dark alley, the next eating caviar in a 1980s movie limousine. Perhaps Dan Ackroyd is there.
The other thing that seems to be important is David Beckham not getting selected by Stuart Pearce for Team Great Britain. Lots of whingeing.
Okay! Euros! Ronaldo was the man to take the fifth penalty against Spain. Yup, we knew that. And Prandelli may not be a lock for the Azzuri despite his success in this tournament so far. Horncastle’s take on Italy’s chances tonight. Lawton loves Germany. Lyttleton’s take on the game yesterday. Bert Van Marwijk also resigned as head coach of the Dutch national team.
Club news: Jordi Alba joining Barcelona. That’s kind of it.
That’s all I got. That’s the story so far…
