Eventually, after I purchased the safety vest that I've been looking for for a while now, we headed over to the main grandstand to watch the Nations Cup. The countries participating were Ireland, Britain, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, U.S.A. and Switzerland. It was exciting to watch, especially with Ireland coming out as the ...
