"We need to regroup and recover and see the opportunity". So to be here now, leading this team out, I'm so proud.

We put tasty treats on each of the country's flags and after some unwanted interference from a feline friend, Tilly made her choice (which you can see in the video below). Of the tournament's star players, Romelu Lukaku has performed as strongly as we expected him to.
