I overheard my son discussing the Football World Cup with his friend.
“Holland is the best team”, my six-year old said.
“If they are so good, why did they lose?”
“They are the best team, but because they were cheating, they lost”, my son insisted.
“No, Spain is the best team.”
“You don’t know anything.Spain is a useless team. But Cheaters never win.”
As a lifelong supporter of the Netherlands, I was hoping they would lift the Jules Rimet Trophy this year. But as a mother, I am glad my kids learnt a valuable lesson that day.
Cheaters never win.
