Finally The Beautiful Game has a Winner
The Perfect Pitch
By William Ralston source The Guardian
Amsterdam, June 19th 2021–The pitch held up perfectly.
Towards the end of the match, Standley joined Frith in the tunnel, where they watched some of the final minutes together.
They chatted about Raheem Sterling’s goal, proud of the role they had both played in it. “I grew up watching Euro 96, so to be standing on the turf at Wembley for Euro 2020 is something I could have only dreamed of,” Standley told me. “You work for days like these. But I wasn’t at work, I was living out a childhood dream.”
