“That’s great. Thanks very much.”

— Sweden’s assistant manager in response to Ola Billger, of the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper, after he obtained a sneak preview of Roy Hodgson’s tactical plans.

And how did the Billger do just that? By peering through his fourth floor Kiev Opera Hotel room’s skylight down into a third-floor meeting room where the England manager was briefing his players. Of course.

By the way, it’s not cheating on your other half if you think constantly about the first photo for the next 6-8 weeks.

Our match viewing beer/spritzer/liquor goggles, caught in still frame.

Yowser, yesterday’s games were doozies, weren’t they Kickettes?

Wayne Rooney scored in his triumphant return from suspension, John Terry saved the day for England (which the referees’ chief later said should’ve been a goal) and Shevchenko’s 20 minute cameo failed to give us a good glimpse of his yummy tummy.

We also caught Ibrahimovic’s stellar strike and bicep(s) flex.

A footy-free evening is upon us and we plan on recharging the hell out of our internal batteries. You?
