Just saw on Twitter it would have been his birthday yesterday. He may not have been a good footballer but at 25 he died far too soon. I'm 25, the thought of today being my last day is humbling to say the least!
"This is the moment, it's Archer to Guptill, 2 to win! Guptill's going to push for 2 they've got to go! He's got to go to the keeper's end! He's got it!!! England have won the World Cup! By the barest of margins! By the barest of all margins!"
He wasn't very talented but fuck me that second half performance against Bournemouth was stuff of near legend. Defended superbly despite lacking the natural talent to really pull it off. Pure grit, determination and effort mixed in with a bit of luck.
Clearly a good heart and a truly terrible loss of life.
