Hello all! I’m Richard, soon to be graduate of Law (Bachelor of Civil Law) at University College Dublin (UCD). In my spare time I’ve played for, and am currently President of UCD American Football Club . As an enthusiastic promoter and fan of sport, I also involve myself in blogging, tweeting and ,most enjoyably, sports journalism with The University Observer.
Having discovered football in my early childhood (courtesy of Eric Cantona), I have become a fanatical follower of the beautiful game. Channel 4’s iconic Serie A show, Football Italia with James Richardson, introduced me to the wider world of sport away from the confines of the Premier League (as well as AS Roma, who I still support). Since then I’ve been a fan of the game across Europe and internationally.
World Cup Daily will serve as a hub for the latest World Cup news for the duration of the tournament. There will be a roundup of the day’s action – results, analysis, opinions, the press’ view from around the world and, of course, the lighter side of the World Cup.
Until then, I’ll be regularly updating with squad announcements and the latest on preparations in South Africa for what promises to be a truly magnificent spectacle.
