Artist Ruth Franklin of Decatur, Georgia—the Global Game's hometown—submits from East Anglia the fifth photo-contest winner. Unidentified England supporters in Norwich appear hopeful before the penalty-kick phase in the quarterfinal versus Portugal on 1 July 2006. After managing to convert just one of its spot kicks, however, England again crashed out of a major tournament. Writes When Saturday Comes (Aug 06):

One view is that if you're taking part in a lot of shootouts it's because you're not doing very well at the business of actually winning matches in normal play.

Franklin is a studio artist represented by Decatur's Vinson Gallery. Her work has featured previously in Left Wing, the Global Game's Web log.
