Football and sport

Hi readers, it’s me William here today as Emily is moving house and so has a lot going on right now. We are giving her a break from the column for a bit so she can focus on that.

Although I am missing Emily today, it does give me a chance to talk about the football, which I don’t think she is as keen on as I am. I have been watching all the European Cup games over the last two weeks and am very pleased that England went through the first round.

As I write, they are due to play tomorrow afternoon against Germany. I hope very much that they win. I will be watching the first half before the Music with Friends event at People First Dorset, and will watch the rest of the match afterwards. I hope and think that England will win 2-0.

It has been interesting to see how many people there are at the matches in other countries than and I worry a bit about so little social distancing and the virus spreading. I think it’s good that there is a limit on numbers in England.

I also enjoyed watching Spain today and seeing them win against Croatia. As I write, Wimbledon started today and I might watch some of that in the next couple of weeks too.

In fact, there is a lot of sport to look forward to this summer, like the Olympics, the motor racing and the six nations later this year. Whatever happens with COVID, I hope that all these go ahead and have them to enjoy.

I hope you are enjoying watching all the sport too and I’ll see you soon with hopefully more good news for England.
