The Telegraph newspaper has the best World Cup coverage. Their live match commentary is often brilliant. Here’s their instant reaction to the late score by the United States that pushed
the UK England* into the second spot in the group, where they will likely face Germany in the next round:
The USA have come fashionably late to the party, leaving us at the mercy of the Germans. It’s World War Two all over again.
That is wit on demand.
* Updated after a commenter reminded me that England goes it alone in soccer.
