So we are all back after surviving a slew of international friendlies. In fact, our game against Lithuania was so friendly that we didn’t even play in a football ground, but apparently in their local potato field. It was all good fun. Xavi grew a couple of inches with all that mud caked under his soles. Off the record, it was me who came up with the brilliant plan as to how Leo Messi could skip the Costa Rica game.

And now the Costa Rica football association is collectively frothing at the mouth, and Leo says it’s all my fault! Hmmph, where’s the fairness in that, I ask?! I’ve told Leo to tell them it was a Fools day prank and he said he’d sleep on that idea.
