The Underdog / by Simon Mooney

We'd just left the England training camp during World Cup 2006 in Germany and were heading back through the Black Forest to the team hotel. Tom the kitman suggested stopping for a drink at this roadside cafe and it was here I met the perfect dog. He was small, lean, handsome and desperate to be let loose on the monster across the car park.

Good job his owner held him back really.
