The fireworks had just finished. I'd been on the beach with my friends, and we started to head back into the Old Town, crossing the Promenade des Anglais which lines the beach. The terrorists timed their attack to the precise minute, so that the road would be full of people crossing the beach after the fireworks. It was the busiest moment possible.

I'm finally back on British soil again after an incredible time at Le Mans! The Eurotunnel was closed on the way back though, so it took us fourteen hours to drive home... which after a 24-hour race is certainly enough driving for me for a while.

I'm not going to claim we're out of the woods yet; there's a long way to go till the fruits of independence are laid bare. For starters, we're certainly not going to be spending that phantom £350million anytime soon (if it even proves to exist). But seeing people write off a historic opportunity on the basis of one day's events is absolutely crackers.

Natalie Walker | Posted 26.06.2016 | UK Sport

Whilst England have won only 17% of their penalty shootouts, Germany and Argentina have won over 70%. Even Denmark and the Czech Republic have higher success rates.

They could yet go far, but as things stand it is still relative failure from the under-performing English at a major tournament, again. However, this is different failure and that in itself is actually a silver lining of sorts - literally just because it isn't the same as countless times before
