A lousy World Cup for my home country, England, but a great one for media watchers. Some of my favourite headlines from before during and after the tournament:
The Sun predicts an EASY group stage. With two draws and a solitary win, it was anything but.
The New York Post gets carried away with itself:
…and then disenvoes any association with association football.
The Mirror gives Fabio Capello some career advice:
The Star led with the glorious “Fritz All Over”
The Mirror led with the more cinematically themed “Rout of Africa”
The Sun didn’t waste any money on a fancy sub-editor, leading with the more straightforward and honest assessment “You Let Your Country Down”.
Final three headlines via the Huffington Post, via @LarysaW. If anyone cares, I’m torn between Brazil and Argentina or Germany for the cup.
