The England game

I live with a bunch of football fanatics. Not just my younger son, who plays football, but also my husband (who coaches, plays and supports) and my daughter, who is probably the biggest armchair fan of all my kids.

First up, my daughter took part in a quiz against other schools. It’s a general knowledge quiz and part of a bigger competition, with regional semi-finals and a national final. Each team is strictly made up of a year 3, a year 4, a...
