Honduras vs Switzerland and Ecuador vs France (Group E)

Cornwall. 25th June 2014. 20.55pm – Five minutes before kick off.

Hazel, 94, and Barbara, 96, are watching the build up to the Honduras vs Switzerland game.

The squad lists appear on the screen.


HAZEL: What?

BARBARA: Nothing.

Hazel looks at the screen.

HAZEL: You’re laughing at the fact ‘Phillipe Senderos’ sounds vaguely like ‘Honduras’, aren’t you…?

BARBARA: Words are ace!

HAZEL: They certainly are.

Hazel smiles.

HAZEL: What are your favourite words?

BARBARA: ‘Patronising’ and ‘bitch’, I reckon.
