1. The Offside from The New York Times is one of the best pieces of journalism. Reading it was a superb companion along with the games. I could recommend the starting opinion, the boys from the banlieues and the piece about Google Translate as a nugget.
  2. Watching an England match from a pub in London should be on everybody’s bucket list. Also, everybody should watch a game where Mexico plays from a big city from the US.
  3. London is the sixth biggest French city, as the tweet below and somebody from FranceInfo put it. On that Sunday, I was able to convey what that statement actually means. Also, it was slightly impossible to book a Eurostar train ticket from London to Paris on the day before the final. I would have loved to be there.
