Suomi Je Suis’s Travel Diary

MapPlayed another tournament this weekend. We were unbeaten on day one but by the end of it we were playing like senior citizens. A 10:30 kick off on a Sunday did not help. We drew 1-1, then it went to sudden death penalties. This was obviously a bad omen because 2 of us are English, and more importantly we had to play in red, so i was wearing...a Liverpool shirt (borrowed i might add).
Anyway, rather predictably i was told to take the first one. And yes, rather predictably, i missed it. They scored theirs, we lost, and i didn't get to do my Stuart Pearce-esque celebration after 6 years since my last penalty miss (against the mighty Witham town).
In my defence i put it right in the corner but the keeper was a big lad so he tipped it wide.

Here is a list of all the excuses i have thought of so far as to why i missed:
-Too hot and still dehydrated from last night (Russian beers)
-Liverpool shirt
-6 a side goal and big keeper
-I'm English
-Blisters (see photos)

This of course means it wasn't my fault
