Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Brasil '14 - Day 5

Morning, lads. It's D-Day for US fans at the World Cup. We start with a bang this morning as two European powers - Germany and Portugal - start their World Cup campaigns. Then we can all have a wee siesta while Iran and Nigeria are doing whatever they want to do. That builds nicely to the climax - US v. Ghana. We'll be over at Johnno's again today for a big barbeque for the big one. Enjoy it where you're watching.

A big scandal has erupted in the Croatia camp as some enterprising Brazilian photogs snapped a group of Croat players having a bath. That's one set of pap shots I do not want to see.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be starting in his sixth major tournament today (if he's fit). Should he score, he would equal Jurgen Klinsmann's record of scoring in six tournaments.

This from the Fifa website: Germany will be contesting their 100th World Cup game when they start their 18th finals tilt – making them the first team to reach treble figures. The three-time champions boast a record of 60 wins, 19 draws and 20 defeats, along with a goal difference of +89 thanks to 206 goals scored and 117 conceded. Four members of Low's current squad are already centurions, of course, having racked up over 100 caps – led by veteran striker Miroslav Klose, who has made 132 appearances and already plundered 14 World Cup strikes in three separate editions.

Sensational news coming in from the Brazil camp in Teresopolis, where manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has launched a brutal assault on Dani Alves. The Brazilian full-back was doing some ball-juggling while waiting for the session to get under way, when his manager strode up to him and launched a savage attack that left the player rolling around on the ground in agony. Quite what prompted the attack remains unclear.
