Belgium Won the Bronze

I rooted for Belgium in the broze game of the World Cup today. My paternal grandfather was from Belgium, so I feel some kinship with the Belgians.

Daniel rooted for England. He says England has been his second favourite national team ever since he was young.

It was a good game. Both teams played well. In the end, however, the goals scored is what counts. Belgium won fairly, 2-0. I am happy they did.

This is the first time Belgium has won medals in the football World Cup, after having been fourth in 1986. England won gold in 1966, and was fourth in 1990. This is, thus, a shared second best result for the English team. It has been a good World Cup for both teams, despite the disappointment of not going all the way to the final.
