Missing the boot

Regular readers of Tulkinghorn’s chronicle of the Fifa World Cup may remember the story of Norton Rose real estate partner Dan Wagerfield, who spent two weeks during the tournament camping with his in-laws in the South of France – a resort favourite among the Germans.

Wagerfield, you may recall, was making an escape to watch the England versus Sweden game. “But I missed Joe Cole’s wonder” Wagerfield lamented. “I was on the phone to my mum”

Can’t win ’em all Dan.
