There were red faces in the England camp today as it was revealed an over-enthusiastic admin assistant had already booked their flight home after the Colombia game.
“I thought I’d better get them booked as soon as possible since Dele insists on an aisle seat, just in case he’s feigning a broken leg,” she said.
“Then when I heard it had gone to penalties, I thought I may as well confirm the tickets. I couldn’t believe we actually won.”
It’s thought the assistant now won’t dare book another flight until after the final on 15th July, which should give the team a lot of time for sightseeing after their last game.
