England are through to the semi-finals

It wasn´t a dream, it wasn´t a hallucination: the England football club are through to the 2018 World Cup semi-finals.  It´s a huge effort, it´s an enormous achievement, and considering that last time this happened was in 1990, I have every right to feel dizzy with excitement and hope for a stunning semi-final victory.

I watched the match with a group of young English lads who were fresh-faced, just out of high-school, and innocent of the years of heartache that the majority of English football fans have experienced over the last three decades.  They truly believed that England could do it.  I, on the other hand, willed myself to quash the stomach-wrenching feeling that England would, once again, under-perform.

So, the fear of defeat is broken, and I thank every single one of those lads who helped me to ride the exhilarating wave of football emotion. Come on England!
