I was so happy for Switzerland when Spain didn’t score their first penalty, and Switzerland did, but it soon went pear shaped, when the players were unable to score penalties. Well, Spain must have wanted it more, because they scored the winning goal.
I hadn’t planned on being up in the timeshare that long, so managed to watch some of it from the balcony, as the television is on a swivel arm that can be adjusted where you want it.
I then did my walking until 4 p.m., on the beach, and came up for the second half of the Belgium – Italy match. Sadly for me Italy are winning 2 – 1 with only minutes left on the clock. I will be sad to see them go out.
Italy have gone through.
