Ah, how I enjoyed it, what a beautiful game of football. I enjoyed it all the more for watching it with a couple of “this is how football should be played” merchants, defenders of the dangle, who didn’t understand how football could be exciting without someone stepping over the ball.

While Greece may not be one of “The Great Teams” (i.e. they’re not filled with outstanding individuals) it’s pretty much undeniable that they are a great team: that their teamwork, delightfully, has made them champions. What’s more it appears that Otto Rehhagel has been presented with a trophy of his own: the head of Eusebio. How appropriate.
