I was football mad for a couple of years in the late 1970s, and it all started with the 1978 world cup (being half Scottish, I supported Scotland and have remained an interested supporter ever since). Here's a picture of me at the time in my Scotland football shirt (my brother has just banged his head on our dad's Mini, and is wearing a rather cool Star Wars shirt made from our mum's stock of iron-on transfers; the other two are my cousins who we were visiting in Southampton).
At the moment England have just got through to the second round after improving quite dramatically on their previous form, though still only able to score one goal. They play Germany next, old rivals, who also only scored one goal in their last game, but looked very good indeed. I'm also partial to the Netherlands, the team I supported in the 1978 world cup final (unfortunately they lost to Argentina then - they also lost to Scotland in the first round). Apart from that, I've just enjoyed the whole thing, watching a few games, and listening to most of them on Five Live while sitting at the drawing desk.
The UK has a great tradition of football comics - I worked on a handful of DC Thomson's Football Picture Story Monthlies myself. Like superhero comics, they give the artist the chance to draw the human figure in a variety of bendy action poses. Check out some of Rob Davis's marvellous football work here. And I did a drawing for The Observer Sport Monthly in the last world cup. Here's Julius Chancer in the 1920s England kit (no, he never played for England!).
