Back in 2010, I started dating the girl who would become my wife, we were in Okayama, Japan and the world cup was awesome. Watched every game, mainly with friends and beers and supported my host country as well as I could.

Skip forward 12 years, we are back in Japan and the game that I am struggling to stay awake through is the first and maybe last of the tournament I’ll watch.. My interest in this sport ended at a Scotland vs Canada friendly match in Easter Road some years ago and shows no sign of returning.

Thankfully, I am here to try and support my host country in other ways, so I don’t feel guilty.
