Hot again. 22 at 0900. High today maybe of 33. And humid. Chance of a thunderstorm in the evening.

Wales! Wales! Sweet are thy hills and thy vales!
Great win for Wales last night. 3-0 against Russia.
That means
1. Wales and England qualify for the last 16, and
2. Russia go home. Will Putin send the team to Siberia for extra training for 20 years? Who knows.

"Wales" isn't really a country.

Context - The Russian football team lost 3-0 to Wales last night, and exited Euro 2016. It's the long flight to Yakutia for them.
[N.B. Football is called "football" or futebol throughout the world EXCEPT in the USA where for unknown reasons they use a corruption of "Association Football"- i.e. "soccer". In "American football" the ball is almost exclusively carried or passed in the hand. Good game, but nothing much to do with the foot.]

Wales need to be careful not to win by too much here. Putin's generally not very nice to small countries that make him look silly.
