Like I said, my diary entries after the end of April were a little spasmodic. What with my A Levels and all that, I was just sooooooo busy with revision and everything. Or not.
Anyway, today was the first day of the 1988 European Football Championships, held in West Germany. As it was back in the day, there were only eight teams in the finals tournament, and this time around it did not feature the reigning champions, France. The tournament consisted of two groups of four teams, from which the four semi-finalists would emerge.
Today we watched the hosts play out a 1-1 draw with Italy in Group A. Roberto Mancini scored the opener before Andreas Brehme equalised for the Germans.
