As another year comes to an end the annual reviews of the past twelve months fill our timelines, newspapers and TV screens. It always seems strange viewing football over a calendar year, given most of the top leagues run from summer to spring. That said, I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and write about my favourite moment in football in 2021.
The beautiful game can get to us in all kinds of ways, a football fan travels on the same emotional rollercoaster from season to season. I’ve been lucky over the past year to have taken a few great personal memories from football. The moment I have chosen didn’t involve me, a game I was at, or the team I support. It came at Wembley on the 11th of July, the final of the delayed Euro 2020.
