Turns out watching the penalties shootout by the England team during their game against Colombia was too nerve-wracking for the UK Prime Minister. Commentators online expressed hope Theresa May would show more stamina when it comes to Brexit decisions later this week.

"She actually said earlier she struggles to watch penalties because it's a nerve-wracking time," May's spokesman has told reporters.

Mrs. May will host a meeting with her senior officials on Friday, July 6, where the government is expected to finalize the white paper on Britain's Brexit strategy.
