Training in Quarantine – Day 328 & Football

Missed logging from yesterday. I did my walk later than normal, as I had to pick up my dad from hospital after an operation.

England were playing in Wembley against Germany last night, though I am not much of a football fan and don’t really follow matches.

I didn’t even think England would beat Germany, based on their history.

On my way back from my walk, I came across a group of teenagers with England shirts on. They saw me and started singing “It’s coming home” to me. I just looked blank and confused (being a chinese person, I guess they thought I couldn’t understand them). One of them put their fist out for a fist bump. Now *that* I knew and met the bump before heading off.

England won 2-0 against Germany but you never would have guessed. Normally, when England score a goal or win a match, you hear massive cheering from the neighbours and then celebrations in the streets — people driving their cars with the windows down screaming “En-ger-land!”

None of that this time.
