The Under-20s World Cup: And Then There Were Four

It isn’t anyone’s idea of a dream final – certainly not Eurosport’s Tim Caple. But this Under-20s World Cup hasn’t been a dream tournament. Defensive Portugal against counter-attacking Brazil is something of a representation of what we have seen in Colombia over the last three weeks. And the ball could – should, in theory –…

Book Review: “Home and Away” by Dave Bidini

Far too often we take things for granted.
