Funny I know but I'm less excited about this World Cup than previous ones. Perhaps my feelings will change (they can depend on the infection of excitement around me) but my level of excitement is extremely low at the moment. I haven't seen much about England in the press, which is odd because I think in the past the build up has been massive. The amount I've seen so far this year has been very little, I haven't desired to buy a football top nor a commemorative World Cup football. I bought a replica football for my son during the last World Cup. This year I have only had one conversation with him about it. I hope the football raises the interest rather than all the politics that can surround these big events in sport.
