I have more or less stopped watching football. I recognise that has a lot to do with how badly Chelsea played last season but I also know that I find rugby, cricket, and cycling more entertaining. In fact, I had not seen a single Euro 2016 game this summer, until today. With Wales in a quarter-final, I did my walk on the Drive early to ensure that I got back home in time for the noon kickoff.
Belgium were the heavy favourites, and their early goal seemed to set the stage for an expected victory. But the Welsh lads pulled together as a team — that was the key — and finished with an extraordinary 3-1 scoreline. It was brilliant to watch.
It also means I will definitely be watching the semi-final and cheering them on!
