I have an uncle who used to live in Darwin. He’s what you’d call an old school Aussie, dry as they come, unpretentious and just hates a drink. He reads this blog from New York City, where he now lives and occasionally gets homesick for some of Australia’s simpler charms.
England’s players protested in vain about Maradona’s illegal opener but even they recognised the magnificence of what followed. When I spoke to Gary Lineker about it a few days ago, he told me: “That second goal was the one time in my life where I felt like I ought to applaud the opposition.
