Over the next month or so, events taking place across a vast swathe of South America are going to take centre stage in global news. World Cup 2014 kicks off on Thursday night and I, like many others, will be enjoying every minute!

All the talking points, players, goals, results will be debated endlessly across the media and social media and my conversations with Sophie will be no different.

Having enjoyed the thrilling end to the Premier League season – she slept soundly as Crystal Palace’s Dwight Gayle rattled two quickfire goals to destroy Liverpool’s title hopes – she has been building up to the World Cup with real excitement.

She fancies herself as a pundit so it will be interesting to see what she (with a little bit of help from her Daddy)  comes up with!
