England beat Uruguay! – Episode 62

April 10th, 2009

So I get back from the driving range, where I had been busily grooving my golf swing faults, to see that England were 0-1 down with 20 minutes to go. Oh no – bad news indeed. Rooney had obviously been subbed and things were not looking great. Until Joe Cole crosses superbly for human beanpole Peter Crouch to bag his first England goal! 1-1 then but only ten mins or so left. Can England do it and save my bet.

And they do of course when the superb Joe Cole gets on the end of a Sean Wright-Phillips’ cross to nab the winner 2 mins into added time. Phew! That was close. Well done England, especially Joe Cole who was deservedly man of the match. And well done Bookers in trousering ÂŁ1 profit. I will not rush into my next bet. This time around consideration is the key.
