FOOTBALL: You've done us proud

Dear Gareth Southgate, what a good conductor you were in bringing the talented, youthful, England team all the way to the World Cup semi-final.

It was more than we dared hope for and we are so proud of you and the team’s efforts.

It’s come at the right time, with all the Brexit complexities, frustrations and fuzziness we are facing at the moment.

Your prowess was like a breath of fresh air, and as the England football team advanced to the semi-final, it captivated the public’s emotions in what was achieved.

I’m quite sure for the future ‘we ain’t seen nothing yet’.

I think you have woken up the public to what can be achieved.

It’s all about tenacity, dedication, loving what you’re doing and high standards.

Bring in Alan Shearer to complete the picture.

We are so proud of you all.

Mrs CV Hovsepian
