UK residents and regular HEGS readers will already be familiar with my semi-regular contributions to When Saturday Comes, and it’s with some pride that I encourage all of you to go out and buy the new edition of the magazine, which – for the month has arrived for such things – includes a special extra World Cup preview booklet. Luminaries such as Phil Ball (Spain) and Uli Hesse (Germany) give the lowdown on the competing nations, and yours truly spent a full day frantically draping myself in various national flags as I wrote the team profiles for Argentina, Paraguay, Chile and Uruguay (I didn’t really drape myself in their flags). If you don’t live in the UK there’s good news: the magazine is now available in an excellent digital version (which includes this month’s special), a free trial issue of which you can see here if you’d like to sign up. Apparently there’s also an iPhone app.
Off topic-Claudio Borghi confirmed as coach of Boca !! Hooray for all Bosteros. And hopefully he can bring Mercier with him.
Nice work Sam! WSC is available in lots of places in New York, for the record.
