Euro 2016

Well I’m in the middle of watching England finish their qualifying for Euro 2016 and thinking about what I could do next year book related, like my world cup of writing post that I did five years ago for the 2010 world cup (I missed last times as the whole three percent thing was running and also there was so many countries that had so little available at hand it would been hard to have done something .So I fancy a swing at either a solo challenge or some sort of football/book related posts like I did in the world cup of writing post relating memories of writers and footballers together. A look through the qualified teams –

France

England

Czech republic

Iceland

Austria

Northern Ireland

Portugal

Spain

Switzerland

Italy

Belgium

Wales

Romania

Albania

Germany

Poland

Russia

Then four more from the eight best third place teams which will be decided tonight .The list makes my eyes light up for a number of reasons, Romania,Poland are two countries I have great books on my shelves to read. Memories of football you can’t go pass Northern Ireland at the world cup in 1982 beating Spain the host nation to top the group,  Gerry Armstrong  pictured above  and those Billy Bingham boys or shocking  moments like Austria and Germany playing a deliberate  score a win to Germany that meant both countries qualified for the next round also from 1982.I’m sure I will get something fun and different together mix books and football again.
