Lessons learned from World Cup

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Cartoon -

THE foot­ball clashes be­tween Eng­land and Ger­many are al­ways clas­sic en­coun­ters.

So far the World Cup has been char­ac­terised by the good be­hav­iour of Eng­land fans in South Africa and in this coun­try dur­ing the tour­na­ment.

Eng­land’s dis­ap­point­ing early per­for­mances quickly damp­ened any wildly op­ti­mistic pre­dic­tions for their chances in the tour­na­ment.

So, now the team, is start­ing to im­prove, there is a re­fresh­ing op­ti­mism with­out all the wild hype about their chances.

That has been re­flected in some great events across the city as bars, pubs, schools and com­mu­nity groups have got to­gether to en­joy the games.

It is the great strength of the World Cup that it brings com­mu­ni­ties and coun­tries to­gether.

Ri­valry played out with re­spect and sports­man­ship is a healthy les­son for young­sters to learn.

For that rea­son it’s been a good World Cup for fans so far... now let’s hope Eng­land can make it great World Cup on the pitch.
