Just read journalistic accounts of the game mentioned in the previous post.

One of those funny games that could have swung either way,
it sounds like.
Qatar's team, while a newer entity, looked promising going in.
The USMNT team, however, outlasted them and, I believe, wore them down.
The game sounds rather ugly, with only one goal scored and an awful lot of effort to prevent further goals from being scored.

Anyway, the USMNT team has won that game and now comes
a truly emotional meeting:
USA versus Mexico, they have been fierce rivals for some time.

Judging from the fuss in the USA,
a lot of Murricans didn't.

Now they take on the team from Qatar.

I think you're right Jon. My sister says it's fitness that matters, not size. I feel a bit guilty now for 'fat-shaming'! It's just that in all the places in West Africa I've visited, I never once saw anyone obese. Strong, active and rather thin, but never too plump.

Sen, I believe John Hartson had weight problems in his few games for NCFC.

Cricket comes to mind for other sportsmen. A bit before my time but Colin Milburn had quite a frame, and apparently was (as well as being an excellent batsman) a surprisingly agile fielder.

Within a time I was following county cricket… I quite like this Wiki extract for Ian Austin who was a good county player for Lancs:

Enormously popular with the Lancashire crowd thanks to his uncomplicated batting style and equally old-fashioned waistline,

There is some dispute over who sang it first with rival claims but I think Liverpool probably have the best claim. They were singing it on the terraces there shortly after Gerry & The Pacemakers released it in late 63 early 64. Celtic were also singing it from a very early date though. I spoke to one Liverpudlian years ago who said he went to the second leg of the European Cup Winners Cup semi final in 1966. Liverpool had lost the first leg in Glasgow and when he got into Anfield he was astonished to see it packed full with Celtic fans all singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" so they were apparently already singing it by the mid 60s too. Great anthem for both clubs. Here is Gerry leading both sets of fans in 2003 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzJqv_Oj_W0

Norwich City FC's new season football strip has been put on sale, and husband (of course!) ordered one. He was dancing about this morning because it will arrive today by Royal Mail.
We saw a chap in Tesco wearing the same shirt, but he was extremely obese and we reckoned it must have been size XXXL. It came down to his knees, and you could have camped out under it! Husband is size M.

I can't understand why Southgate used three young and inexperienced players in the penalty shootout. The last penalty was taken by the 19-year-old Sako who'd been on the pitch for hardly any time at all and who hadn't even touched the ball. He's never taken a penalty for his club either. In the final analysis you could say that Southgate got us all the way there via superb management over several years - then was responsible for throwing it all away by those silly last-minute decisions.

We were found out tonight. A great first half-hour, then well mugged by a wily and experienced Italian team full of energy and drive. I'm happy with the result.

Well I'm not exactly over the moon. Denmark scored a spiffing goal. We got there via a scuffed own-goal and a rebound from the unlucky Danish goalie after a terrible Kane penalty kick (that should never have been awarded in a million years in the first place). We'd better play better than that on Sunday, otherwise we'll get marmalised. I love watching Italy play, Italy's my favourite country and I've decided to be a neutral on Sunday. I just want to see a good game!

That was an exceptionally fine game between Italy and Belgium, a credit to the sport. I had no dog in the fight but I was on the edge of my settee all the way through. I fancy Italy to trounce Spain in the semis and would like to see England play Italy in the final. I live in England but Italy is my very favourite country. We'll get slaughtered, but Gareth will become Sir Gareth. I'm having two people round, of a gender not my own, to watch England play Ukraine on the telly (NOT a pushover...), neither of whom ever watch footie. It'll be spag bol then the footie.

The Netherlands have made it clear that they will ban travelling Welsh fans from entering the country for the next match.
Now that England have qualified for a home match in the next round, will England (or the UK authorities) match this? The four possibilities for 'away' teams at England's next Wembley match are France, Germany, Portugal and Hungary. All these are on the UK 'Amber' list which requires 10 days quarantine on arrival in UK.

This is not a request for 'tit for tat' action, but an attempt to give equal treatment to all teams.

An announcement by the UK government now might cause a re-think by the Netherlands.
