GOAL OF THE TOURNAMENT – AND WE ARE OWNING IT IN THE UK!
Sometimes doing this job is nothing but a pleasure. Because sometimes I get to put words to the moments where people are fulfilling their dreams – reaching the pinnacle of their sporting lives, you might say.
And that is not too much to say about the action that is here, on the Goal Of The Tournament selection that went live on our social media this week.
These are the skills of ordinary people in leagues from everywhere around the world, those who got the chance in the World Cup in Rethmyno to be right at the centre of the sporting world for eight glorious days in Crete.
And the skills they produced in the matches, the memories that were made, will live long in to the future, so that players like Wales Tyrrell Webbe – goal number two here – and Scotland hotshot Iain Anderson can sit there in years to come maybe telling their grandchildren about the time when they scored one of the greatest goals in the history of their country.
And the selection committee picked a Greece one too, but we won’t comment on that……
If I am honest, my favourite is number….. well, that’d be telling,, but never mind that, we want you to pick the one you like best.
All you need to do is to head over to Facebook and get commenting.But it is important to remember that it doesn’t matter who emerges victorious really, just by taking part everyone was a winner.
