Switzerland was then a joke team, and for years I had a paper Swiss flag stapled to a wooden stick, given to me, and everyone else at the match by Swiss PR.
But at this year’s Euro’s Switzerland have been anything but a joke team.
They were a classy team that almost beat the tournament hosts, France.
Also tonight Albania beat Romania.
In 1998 I flew to Toulouse to see England lose to Romania by a last minute goal.
Tonight Albania took revenge on Romania, on behalf of England.
Romania are now going home.
16 years too late fate had its way.
