    Great blog, a tournament continually under-rated in my opinion. Possibly due to its scheduling (right in the middle of our domestic season) but in terms of quality it can rival a European Championship.

      Thanks for the comment Gavin,

      Completely agree and it is a shame that the tournament is getting the coverage of the recent Togo tradegy but hopefully it can be remembered for the football. Some fantastic teams, great atmospheres and brilliant moments of individual quality.

      Enjoy the tournament, Cheers Gaffers
