Byline: Debbie Johnson

I WATCHED the football with my son on Thursday night. He was up far too late but was really keen so I let him. He had been watching Wayne Rooney earlier in the tournament,and was very impressed that he was a `teenager'.

He is currently obsessed with teenagers,and says the word as though they are some foreign species that he might evolve into like a Pokemon one day.

One of the commentators made the point that the England team seemed to fall to pieces after Rooney limped off.``But why,'' said the young person by my side, ``did that happen.He's just a teenager,and the others are all proper,grown-upmen. Why couldn't they do it without him?''

And a nation struggles to answer the very same question,as the flags get pulled from the windows.
