England 6 Panama 1

What a refreshing change with England at 5-0  half time and no panic or stress. Harry Kane scored a hat-trick as England swaggered to the World Cup knockout stage with a game to spare after routing Panama 6-1 in Nizhny Novgorod.

A record World Cup haul had come in an exhilarating first half as John Stones scored twice from set-pieces Kane lashed two penalties and Jesse Lingard found the top corner with a curling strike .

Kane knew little about his 62nd-minute third, diverting Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s shot in via his heel, but a World Cup treble takes him top of the goalscoring charts in Russia, as well as putting him in illustrious England company alongside Gary Lineker and Sir Geoff Hurst.

Xhaka and Shaqiri – both ethnic Albanians from Kosovo – appeared to make a gesture that mirrored the Albanian ‘double-headed eagle’ flag.

A Serbian crackdown on the Albanian population of Kosovo in the 1990s has left plenty of ill-feeling between the two nations, and while Xhaka was born in Switzerland, the Arsenal midfielder has made a point of embracing his Kosovan roots – due to his father being a political prisoner who was jailed in the former Yugoslavia for three-and-a-half years. Shaqiri was born in the Kosovan city of Gjilan, before emigrating with his family to Switzerland as a young boy.

And why not is what I say as I reproduce the gesture in The Field.

Livin’ La Vida Loca

Ricky Martin

She’s into superstitions black cats and voodoo dolls
I feel a premonition that girl’s gonna make me fall

She’s into new sensations new kicks in the candle light
She’s got a new addiction for every day and night

She’ll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain
She’ll make you live her crazy life but she’ll take away your pain
Like a bullet to your brain
Come on!

Upside, inside out she’s living la vida loca
She’ll push and pull you down, living la vida loca
Her lips are devil-red and her skin’s the color mocha
She will wear you out living la vida loca
Come on!
Living la vida loca
Come on!
She’s living la vida loca

Woke up in New York City in a funky cheap hotel
She took my heart and she took my money
She must’ve slipped me a sleeping pill

She never drinks the water
Makes you order French Champagne
Once you’ve had a taste of her
You’ll never be the same
Yeah, she’ll make you go insane
Alright

Upside, inside out she’s living la vida loca
She’ll push and pull you down, living la vida loca
Her lips are devil-red and her skin’s the color mocha
She will wear you out living la vida loca
Alright!
Living la vida loca
She’s living la vida loca

She’ll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain
She’ll make you live her crazy life
But she’ll take away your pain
Like a bullet to your brain
Come on!

Upside, inside out she’s living la vida loca
She’ll push and pull you down, living la vida loca
Her lips are devil-red and her skin’s the color mocha
She will wear you out living la vida loca
Come on!

Upside, inside out she’s living la vida loca
She’ll push and pull you down, living la vida loca
Her lips are devil-red and her skin’s the color mocha
She will wear you out living la vida loca
Come on!
Living la vida loca
Come on!
She’s living la vida loca

Come on!
La vida loca
La vida loca

Nobody Wins

Elton John

They must have loved each other once
But that was many years ago
And by the time I came along
Things were already going wrong
I felt the pain in their pretense
The side they tried hard not to show
But through the simple eyes of youth
It wasn’t hard to see the truth

And in the end nobody wins
When love begins to fall apart
And it’s the innocent who pay
When broken dreams get in the way
The game begins, the game nobody wins

They must have loved each other once
Before the magic slipped away
And as their life became a lie
What love remained began to die
I used to hide beneath the sheets
I prayed that time would find a way
But with the passing of the years
I watched as laughter turned to tears
We used to love each other once
With all the passion we possessed
But people change as time goes by
Some feelings grow while others die
But if we learn from what we see
And face the truth while we still can
Then though the passion may be gone
Some kind of love can still live on

Nobody wins
And it’s the innocent who pay
When broken dreams get in the way
The game begins, the game nobody wins
