The important thing with covering a World Cup which has been so slow to start as this one is, basically, to at least try and keep yourself entertained.  As such, our intrepid crayon-tester and some-time football journalist Dotmund had something of an ‘episode’ and decided to file his report of the Group H match between the reigning European Champions Spain and Switzerland in handwritten form.  With sketches.   He hopes this novel approach will become the paradigm for all sports reporting in this country.  We are just glad that it keeps him off the streets.

Our thanks once more to Historical Football Kits for the use of their images in this match report.
