It’s taken me a whole tournament but, like the Spanish, I’ve peeked at the vital moment. Yesterday I was crowned the weekly winner of The Guardian’s online football Gallery competition, for an effort recounting my ‘Euro 2012 memories’.
My joy was unbridled. I can now expect a copy of Rob Smyth’s Jumpers for Goalposts, in perfect time for my hols. My book review will appear on the blog in due course.
