I was slightly surprised to see that the cover story for the Sport section wasn't England's dramatic 3-2 victory over Sweden but the fact that rain had delayed the France-Ukraine tie from earlier the same day.
The England game doesn't even feature in the sidebar on the cover. Oh well, I thought, The Independent can be deliberately contrary at times. Maybe this is the Northern Irish edition and they're treating the England game as a minor story out of devilment.
It doesn't take long to figure out that the paper was printed before the England game had taken place. I can't quite imagine how anyone thought the sports section of a national newspaper could make sense without the biggest sports story of the day. Wouldn't it be better to have late newspapers than early newspapers without the news?
Here's their coverage of France's 2-0 victory over Ukraine.
Except they clearly printed it before the first goal had gone in:
... and before most of the other details were known...
I bet dddddd's Mum is very proud.
Is this a problem in general with these Euros? Are other newspapers missing the same details or is it just The Independent?
I know newspapers lose out to the internet when it comes to today's news... to now. But when they lose out to yesterday's news as well...
