Well, England won.

To those from across various waters, England won a football game against Switzerland 3-0.

The amount of children running around shouting "England!" and cars tooting as they pass this shop is phenomenal. It scares me, to be frank. You don't see this very often, and it is this that makes this experience rather scary to me.

I mean, it's only Switzerland in a group game, a game we were expected to win comfortably. I don't know, maybe I'm just not cut out to support football teams any more because I can't recall ever getting so excited that I'd chant the team's name out and honk a car horn every 200 metres over a rather academic result.

Still, at least it means there are no riots around here, for now.
