World Cup Ennui

Yet more World Cup heartbreak for England — knocked out by Portugal on penalties AGAIN! It’s just like Euro 2004 all over again.

It just seems really unfair; England played much better than Portugal, even though they were a man down after Rooney got sent off (for a much lesser offence than Figo’s head-butt in the Portugal v Netherlands game).

I was texting a friend about the game yesterday and the predictive text dictionary in my ‘phone suggested “ennui” as the spelling for “footie” — a bizarrely accurate alternative spelling.
