WORLD CUP SOCCER

Alas, it was little more than an empty consolation in the end as Germany held on to win 3-2, but we still find immense joy in watching Philippe Albert (latterly of Newcastle United and then even latterly-er of the Belgian fruit and veg import/export trade) threading the needle with surgical precision before popping it calmly past Bodo Illgner in the 90th minute of Belgium’s second round tie at USA ’94…

Slinky, just like his moustache.
